Villiera Blanc De Blanc Brut Chardonnay 2003

Slightly unripe, healthy fruit was whole bunch pressed in a pneumatic bag press. Only the Cuvee (500 litres/ton) was settled and naturally fermented. After stabilisation and addition of the liqueur de tirage, the wine was bottled for second fermentation. After 30 months on the lees, this sparkling wine was riddled and disgorged. Dosage ensured perfect balance and a further 2 years on the cork will result in peak maturity. Tasting Note: Rich, creamy, yeasty nose with a full, ripe toasty flavour on the palate, developing finesse and complexity on the aftertaste. Powerful and bracing to drink now but could develop more intensity with another 2 years in the bottle.
