Product Description

"Ashton Hills is justly respected for the class of its sparkling wines, which are only produced when the vintage conditions allow. A healthy crop of excellent quality Chardonnay in 2010 triggered the production of a small volume of a Blanc de Blancs, only the third time George had produced this wine style after the 1997 and 2004. The fruit was gently whole-bunch pressed and the resulting juice was fermented in 300-litre French hogsheads. The wine was bottled towards the end of 2010 and spent two years on its lees before being disgorged and dosed with a low 5 g/l. It's deliciously mouth-filling, sappy and fresh, with attractive biscuity notes, very fine bubbles and a tapering finish. Proper Estate-grown fizz. It's a much more satisfying drink than many Champagnes (and we're not exaggerating)." Winemaker's Note
 
"This is the first disgorgement, with two more to follow. A very attractive wine, with ripe citrus/white peach fruit wound through creamy/yeasty notes; good length and balance."
94 Points James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2014
