The Jacob's Creek Chardonnay Pinot Noir Brut Cuvee is a NV (non-vintage) sparkling wine. Freshness of fruit flavours and yeast complexity, are achieved by the inclusion of more than one vintage during assemblage (blending). Cross blending of vintages also allows the winemaker to accomplish a consistency of quality and style. Typically, the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes are harvested early in vintage when they have fresh varietal flavours and high natural acidity. The retention of natural acidity is important to the style of this wine, giving the palate a crisp and vibrant finish.
Tasting Notes Colour - Mid straw green with a fine gas bead and persistent mousse. Aroma - The refreshing lemon citrus aromas of Chardonnay are in harmony with the red currant characters of Pinot Noir. Palate - Generous citrus fruit flavours are enhanced with creamy nutty yeast characters providing both richness and structure. The wine finishes soft, crisp and clean.
Serving Suggestion: Serve chilled. Enjoy on its own or with food. It is particularly nice with a soft white cheese.
