About The Wine

 

This is one of the best value premium sparklings in the country.

It's a non-vintage blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grown mostly on the Stefano Lubiana biodynamic vineyard in Tasmania.

There's a mixture of oak and stainless used during fermentation and a portion of the base wine is allowed to go through malo, adding subtle layers of detail to the finished wine.

It combines class and complexity with effortless drinkability - a clear example of winemaker Steve's craftsmanship in sparkling production.

 

About Stefano Lubiana

Steve and Monique Lubiana were pioneers of biodynamic farming in Tasmania. 

Their gorgeous estate was the first to adopt the principals of biodynamics in 2008. Since then the quality of the Stefano Lubiana premium range has soared. The wines are immaculate: Pinot noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Sparklings all packed with flavour intensity and perfectly balanced.

As Mike Bennie observed, "Geez, there’s been some wind in the sail on their estate in southern Tasmania. This is top notch stuff right here."

Steve, a fifth-generation winemaker, is now one of Tasmania's leading producers, no doubt about it.

Halliday Wine Companion

"A beautifully expressive chardonnay pinot noir blend that upholds the tension of the 2011 base vintage and deepens it with the red apple fruit and toasty, spicy complexity of '09 and '10 reserves, half of which have been aged in large Austrian oak barrels. The current blend is a 2013 disgorged cuvee released in 2014, making for a particularly toasty and honeyed style, finished off neatly with less than 8g/l dosage." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Our NV Brut Reserve is a multi-vintage blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that incorporates aged reserves of wine specially prepared for the production of this, our house style of sparkling. The natural viticulture and low yields along with our reserve wine creates a sparkling wine that tastes so different – fruit-pure, intense, rich, creamy and complex.
Best enjoyed for any occasion, it is a great all-rounder sparkling wine.
