WINEMAKER'S NOTES 
We have carefully selected various vintage parcels of fruit from winemaker-selected estates to build in some fine aged elements so essential to a good sparkling wine - complexity and persistence. Our Backyard Stories Sparkling has been bottle fermented and aged to create a traditional and elegant style sparkling wine.
 
TASTING NOTES 
COLOUR: Very pale yellow, with a generous and fine bead.
 
AROMA: Attractive lifted fresh perfume from bottle fermented Chardonnay and Pinot Noir; quite complex, with a fine nuance of yeast autolysis and lemon pith.
 
PALATE: Fuller bodied, balanced and complex with a terrific surge of flavour at the start. Great balance and fine long persistent flavours make the wine linger and beckons another glass. Perfectly balanced dosage in the drier spectrum..
 
FOOD MATCH: Fine by itself but especially as an aperitif.
 
CELLARING
As with all traditionally fermented wines matured on lees in bottle, the wine is ready without further bottle maturation.
 
TECHNICAL NOTES
REGION: Margaret River
 
COMPOSITION: 85% Pinot Noir, 15% Chardonnay
 
ALCOHOL: 12.0%
 
STANDARD DRINKS: 7.1
 
VINTAGE NOTES: Fruit was hand-picked and pressed carefully, selected from vineyards especially suited to grapes destined for this style across several excellent vintages.
 
WINEMAKING: All varieties were hand harvested and the fruit cooled overnight, then whole bunch pressed the following morning. This technique helps retain delicacy and persistence in the final cuvee. After primary fermentation, the wines have been tiraged with the addition of sugar and yeast, bottle fermented and matured. Various parcels of differing ages, up to 18 months on lees, were “transvasaged” to tank, clarified and bottled into new glass. A small quantity of expedition liqueur was added back to bring the now dry wine back into fine balance.
