About

This is the top of the sparkling tree for leading Adelaide Hills producer, The Lane. This was made in 2009 in honour of Helen Edwards, the matriarch of The Lane's family owners. This is made in the traditional method and spent 5 years on lees before being disgorged. The base wine is 100% Chardonnay from a cool, South facing slope on the estate which maintains beautiful structure during its long, slow ripening. This is a class sparkling that looks to be in the prime of its life. Refined, elegant and classic.

What it Tastes Like

"A sophisticated style that takes full advantage of 10% oak maturation followed by a full 6 years on lees to build mouth filling texture and subtle complexity of ginger nut biscuits and roast almonds. Gentle apple fruit lingers long on a tense finish defined by lees-derived mouth feel, exacerbated by zero dosage. It's long and structured." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
