Winemaking:

Hand-picking and whole bunch pressing are vital winemaking decisions that shape the quality and character of exceptional wines. With care and precision, hand-picking ensures the selection of only the finest, ripest grapes, resulting in pure and expressive flavours. Whole bunch pressing captures the essence of the grapes, unveiling nuanced aromas and refined structures. These artisanal practices elevate wines to new heights, reflecting the dedication and pursuit of perfection in winemaking.

Handcrafted with unwavering dedication and passion, this limited-release Blanc de Blanc showcases the meticulous attention to detail that defines our Artisans. With limited quantities available, each bottle is a testament to a pursuit of excellence and the desire to create something truly extraordinary.

After one year of maturation on the lees, this Blanc de Blanc has blossomed into a symphony of flavours and textures. The extended contact on its lees has added a captivating complexity and a rich aroma tapestry, unveiling the wine’s true potential.

With a commitment to purity and authenticity, no dosage has been added, allowing the wine’s natural beauty to shine through. The wine was topped with a tiny amount of barrel-aged Riesling after disgorgement. Each sip reveals the precision and balance that defines this remarkable cuvée, showcasing the terroir and the delicate flavours that Eden Valley bestows upon its grapes.
