A classical vintage brut of exquisite power and elegance.

Tasting Notes
The finest expression of Tasmanian sparkling from an exceptional year. A blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and aged for many years in the bottle, bring complexity and richness to the purity of Tasmanian fruit. Displaying notes of toasted brioche, rich lemon curd, white flowers and truffles, the palate has depth, length and perfect balance with savoury notes of yeast complexity coupled with lemon curd and crème anglaise, rose petals and spice. The wine reflects the beauty of the region it is grown in, Pipers River, one of the most acclaimed sparkling wine regions in the world.
Vineyard Notes
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.
Winemaker Notes
Hand harvested in the cold morning hours in the Pipers Brook Vineyard. The cool fruit was very carefully whole bunch pressed extracted only the most delicate juice. Cool fermented to retain the exceptional fruit characters from the 2007 vintage, some parcels were selected for fermentation in barrel. Hand crafted this wine was blended from only the best individual parcels to and create a wine of beauty and complexity. Made in the Traditional Method this wine underwent secondary ferment in bottle and was then aged for nine years in those bottles before release. This is the epitome of deluxe Tasmanian sparkling wine.
