First made in 2010, the St Huberts Sparkling Blanc de Noir is our first attempt at a “serious sparkling” for the last few decades. We venture off the valley floor for this wine, and carefully select parcels of Upper Yarra Valley Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Being a Blanc de Noir, Pinot Noir is the dominant variety, and along with this comes the fruit power and mid palate. A smattering of Chardonnay heaps the wines spine and draws out the finish. Handpicked fruit was gently whole bunch pressed, and the base wine was fermented in its bottle in the “traditionnelle” method. The wine has over four years on lees prior to disgorging, then some time on cork before release.

The base wine was fermented in stainless steel, prior to bottle fermentation. The wine spent over 6 years on lees in bottle.

"Mouth filling mousse on entry precedes a creamy and rich palate. The wine is generous, complex, and layered. A light dosage creates balance, and the finish is long. Unlike the aperitive style 2015, the warmer vintage has resulted in a richer – more expressive sparkling."
