Ghost Rock | Catherine Cuvée Exceptionnelle Brut | 2015
What we think ... Baked apple, lemon rind and white peach with a smoky mineral dimension. Bright, juicy palate with waves of lemon and kiwi acids. This is definitely on the lighter style of sparkling and a complete winner in our view.
Nestled among the rolling patchwork fields of the beautiful coastline of Northern Tasmania, you'll find Ghost Rock among some of god's best country or more fondly known as the Cradle Coast Region.
All the range is 100% from the Estate, all grown, made and bottled onsite, with minimal intervention and maximum attention. There are three tiers to Ghost Rock - the Estate wines, the single vineyard series, and Supernatural which is a range about creativity and deliciousness and bound to one rule only; high quality, Estate-grown fruit at the core.
The range follows a lo-fi mantra of being wild-ferment driven and exclusively unfined/unfiltered, low SO2, small batches, one-off productions.
A blend of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot noir | Hand-picked and whole bunch pressed | Made using Method Traditional | Aged in tank and neutral oak for nine months following fermentation | Then aged a further 40+ months in bottle on lees | 12.5% abv | Dryness: Brut | 750 ml
