Albury Estate Classic Cuvée
Albury Organic Vineyard - 2013
Product Code: BEE06
Grape: Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir
This classic cuvée has all the hallmarks of a fine sparkling wine. The subtle fruit on the nose, predominately red berries from the Pinot and a little light citrus from the Chardonnay, is backed up by a really long, mouth-filling palate that lingers and satisfies. Fresh and lively, ripe acidity is complemented by a subtle sweetness. A wine for drinking on its own or with friends.
