Stefano Lubiana | Brut Reserve
Green apple, lime blossom and white flower. Hyper clean palate, fine mousse and some roundness and texture. The natural viticulture, low yields and incorporation of reserve wines create a sparkling wine that tastes fruit-pure, intense, rich, creamy and complex.
"Our house style of sparkling wine is a multi-vintage blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that incorporates aged reserves of wines specially prepared to maintain its elegance, complexity and consistency." Steve Lubiana.
A blend of 65% Chardonnay and 35% Pinot Noir | Predominantly estate-grown with some select parcels of Derwent Valley fruit | Mix of two terroirs: grey gravelly loams over clay and red loam over gravel | Base 2014 base vintage with 10% 2012 reserves. Vinified in a blend of small oak, large oak and stainless steel and given full malolactic conversion | Made Méthode traditionnelle, with a minimum of two years on lees and one year on cork pre-release.
Reviews & Awards
This year’s Tasmanian Wine Show trophy winner has iced pastry aromas, and some bread and brioche notes. The palate quite rich, full and rounded, its richness enhanced by a well-judged touch of sweetness.
