Brut, River Retreat

A traditional blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, this is a delicate sparkling in the River Retreat range.

Light green straw in colour with a fine persistent bead showing lifted aromas of citrus and apple. Tasting soft and refreshing with light creaminess and balance.

Vinification details

The grapes were picked during the cool of the night, the fruit was de-stemmed and pumped into the press. Only the best quality of free run juice was taken off; then clarified before adding yeast. The fermentation was carried out at a cool temperature to maintain the fruit flavours. After fermentation, the base wine was allowed to rest on yeast lees for 6 months before undergoing a second fermentation to produce the fine bubbles.
