Deviation Road | Loftia Vintage Brut | 2017
This wine is about all about class. Fresh and citrusy with some baked apple richness and sea minerals on the finish. We can see what all the fuss is about with Deviation road. They don't muck about and it's plain to see. Invest in some of the best Australian sparkling on offer.
Hamish and Kate Laurie continue a five generation winemaking tradition. Devoted to the high altitude sites of the Adelaide Hills and with Kate's French oenology training the wines they produce are at once traditional and contemporary.
With a fiery passion to create premium bottle fermented and aged sparkling together with aromatic whites that can genuinely cellar, their signature style is focussed, textural, restrained and balanced. At Deviation Road every sip reveals a little of this mystery; a taste of the terroir, a glimpse at the season, a hint of the science and a wink to the heritage that crafts its existence.
