3 x Sparkling White Primordia
A classic blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier made using the traditional method. The wine has a persistent lively perlage and characteristic aroma. Lively, fine bubbles help to distribute this wine’s wonderful aromatics; lemon zest and fruity apricot notes with orchard fruit and hints of sweet pastry. On the palate is a really lively citrus quality – it’s more lemon sherbet than lemon zest, prompting a lovely tingling sensation. Richer fruity flavours continue on the mid taste – ripe apricot with juicy apple and pear. A fine mousse with those deliciously rounded fruit flavours make this a really enjoyable and smooth drinking sparkling wine, whilst that persistent sherbet lemon quality keeps it refreshing and light.
Serving suggestions: Primordia pairs extremely well with fish, seafood and white meats, etc., also wonderful for aperitifs, as well as making for some magnificent cocktails, too. A perfect accompaniment to fresh native oysters or smoked salmon on crostini.

The fruit was picked and fermented individually with fermentation being carried out in stainless steel tanks using Champagne yeast strains. After malolactic fermentation the three varietals were blended to create a wine with balance and finesse. The wine was disgorged and released after 14 months on the lees.Contains sulphites
