Hesketh Madeline Alice Cuvee
Graceful and refined, Hesketh Madeline Alice Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir NV is bottle-fermented in the traditional method. And it is aged on lees before disgorging and dosage. The result is a complex and elegant style of sparkling wine.
This enticing Rymill Brut displays a pale straw colour with dark green hues highlighting the edges. The attractive bouquet exudes mesmerizing fruit aromas which integrate with a crisp and zesty palate containing flavours of lemon, lime and orange peel. These juicy fruit characters offer a biscuit like texture, ending the wine in a crisp, clean and dry finish. It tastes excellent with natural oysters, or seared scallops in a butter sauce.
Yarra Burn Chardonnay Pinot Noir Meunier Vintage
This sparkler, a blend of two classic varieties, is a lasting value wine that highlights the characteristics of its component grapes - Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. While Chardonnay adds texture and nutty brioche flavours of stone fruits and citrus zest, Pinot Noir provides a nose full of red fruits along with a fine, persistent bead. The nose is rich and toasty, while the elegantly structured palate is fine, crisp and creamy, finishing with innate acidity. Here are some tried and suggested food accompaniments for this splendid wine - bay scallops with garlic and parsley, shucked oysters, Camembert cheese, Tandoori kebabs, beer battered cod and onion rings, and smoked salmon.
