Stefano Lubiana NV Sparkling Brut Reserve (750ml)

Style: Sparkling

Region: Granton, TAS

Vintage:  NV

A 50:50 blend of Chardonnay & Pinot Noir, predominantly estate-grown with some select parcels of Derwent Valley fruit. Mix of two terriors: grey gravelly loams over clay and red loam over gravel. Majority 2013 vintage with roughly 15% reserve wines sourced from the 2011 and 2012 vintages. Vinified in a blend of small oak, large oak and stainless steel and given full malolactic conversion. Méthode traditionnelle, with a minimum of two years on lees and one year on cork pre-release. The natural viticulture, low yields and incorporation of reserve wines create a sparkling wine that tastes fruit-pure, intense, rich, creamy and complex.
