Our first ever sparkling wine is named after our bubbly Nanna Joan and comes in two variants. This wine, the zero dosage, received the Top Gold Medal with 95 points at the 2019 North East Wine Challenge and 3.5 Stars from Winestate in the latest Sparkling Wine Edition. This exclusive Batch 1 – First Release is limited 16 dozen.
This fruit for this wine was been hand-picked from the Greenacres Vineyard, pressed and fermented back at the winery in Ovens before being tiraged by hand and placed into three bins for 18 months for ageing on lees. Following this it was disgorged by hand then sent back up to the Hunter for labelling (again by hand).
The illustrations and label design are thanks to the incredibly talented Adriana Picker and were inspired by the flowers grown by Nanna Joan in her cute garden at home in the Hunter Valley.
We are incredibly thankful for effort that has gone into growing the quality fruit by Bri and Linda, the expert winemaking by Jo and the team, the illustrations and label design by Adriana, and Mum and Dad for the help labelling the wines and getting them ready for release.
If you are unsure of which of the two releases to choose please feel free to send me an email at [email protected] and let me know when you are free so I can give you a call and talk you through them. I may have to call outside of business hours as my day job keeps me busy through the week!
