First made in 2010, the St Huberts Sparkling Blanc de Noir is our first attempt at a “serious sparkling” within 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 gives the wine a backbone and draws out the finish.
Handpicked fruit is gently whole bunch pressed, and the base wine is fermented in its bottle in the “traditionnelle” method. The wine has over four years on lees prior to disgorging, then several months on cork before release.
