About The Wine

Tasmania could now safely be considered the home of premium Sparkling wine in Australia.

The Australian arm of the Kreglinger empire has been pursuing excellence in Sparkling since 1893. This is a classically styled traditional method sparkling from the Pipers Brook region, a place that the winery says, "compares favourably with conditions in the French district of Champagne".

This is a wine style that does well with time in bottle. It is only just now hitting its peak.

The perfect accompaniment for fresh oysters or even as an aperitif.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"Hand-picked in the early morning, whole-bunch pressed, cool-fermented in tank and barrel, then in traditional method in bottle. It is cruising along peacefully, its crisp acidity underpinning the richness developed during 9 years on yeast lees prior to disgorgement. Spice, dried and fresh fruits provide texture and flavour." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

Additional Info

From The Producer

This vintage Kreglinger sparkling is sourced from a single vineyard of the same name, with high-density Pinot Noir and chardonnay of significant vine age, specifically established and managed for sparkling wine production in the Pipers Brook district.

The site was chosen for our vintage sparkling program after many years of rigorous trialing and evaluation. Annual heat summation figures of 950-1050 growing degree days Celsius compare very favourably with sites in Champagne (around 1030 GDD). The Pipers Brook district is characterised by Ferrosol (volcanic) soils, also known as kraznozems. Basalt-derived, they have excellent water holding capacity, offering a steady supply of moisture and nourishment to vines that are managed without irrigation.

Vertical Shoot Positioned (VSP) trellises of very high vine density are hedge-trimmed in summer to provide increased bunch exposure to the sun. Row-spacings are narrow at 1.5 metres.

ABV : 12.5%
