2013 Courabyra 805 Sparkling

Tumbarumba, NSW

Top-notch premium Sparkling from the cool region of Tumbarumba.



About The Wine

Boutique Australian premium sparkling is something of a rarity. It's an expensive process to make top class bubbles. It requires time, commitment, exceptional fruit and serious craft. The Courabyra 805 was made with all of these things.

From a single vineyard, located in the shadow of Australia's highest peak, Mt Kosciuszko, this is one of the finest bubbles in the country. The vineyard is lovingly hand pruned and picked, the blend is predominantly Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with a bit of help from Pinot Meunier.

This release took out the Trophy for Best Sparkling Wine at the 2017 NSW Wine awards.

Fine sparkling is something that you need to hunt for.  We've done the hunting, and this is what we've gathered.


Critic Reviews

DDS review

TROPHY - Best Sparkling (2017 NSW Wine Awards)

DDS review

"Full tote. Mega presence. Sweet citrus, shortbread, crystalised ginger and truckload of other magical things I can't nail down. In the mouth, this just does not quit. Creamy, leesy and waxy with some slatey characters and an impeccable mousse. I feel fancy just drinking it. It is a serious wine but one also with loads of charm." - Different Drop Wine Team

Additional Info

From The Producer

This single vineyard sparkling wine was produced from Courabyra vineyard. The vineyard has an altitude of 730 metres with western facing slopes which provides good air drainage.

The soils consist of decomposed granite and the vineyard has an abundant water supply.

The property is fully maintained by hand, the Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier vines are all cane pruned, whilst the Chardonnay vines are spur pruned.

The canopy is manipulated throughout the season, depending on weather conditions to allow dappled light which assists in the development of fine fruit flavours.
Parcels of fruit from all three varieties were selected to obtain a well balanced wine.

This wine has a rich elegance, creamy in texture with citrus and stone fruit flavours and a crisp clean finish.
