The Airlie Bank Cuvee NV dispels the need to spend a fortune on party fizz. Citrus, apricot and white peach on the nose. Fresh and vibrant with a focused palate of apple blossom and citrus with complex brioche notes. So good. The best party bubbly on the market!
Airlie Bank Cuvee NV – A blend of 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Noir. The fruit is sourced entirely from the Napoleone Vineyard in the Yarra Valley. Each bottling represents a blend, being one part from the grandfather base tank (the oldest element is 2010) along with one part from the current vintage. Small amounts of new oak are used as well as full malolactic fermentation. Unusual for a sparkling wine from Australia, particularly at this price point.
