Our Méthode Traditionnelle NV is a classic sparkling wine made by the traditional bottle fermentation method. Showing citrus, apple, red berry and toasty aromas with exuberance, elegance and the complexity expected of a fine sparkling wine.

Aromas of fresh berry with hints of ripe white peach and toasted hazelnuts. The palate is fresh and vibrant with beautiful delicate forest berry characters that linger to an elegant finish.


Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier sourced from a
selection of our premium vineyards across Marlborough's Wairau and Awatere valleys.
The grapes are harvested early in the season while the natural acidity is high. Each variety is harvested and fermented separately, and undergoes full malolactic fermentation to mellow the acidity, soften the palate and provide flavour complexity. The base wines mature on the yeast from primary ferment for six months before blending. Then there is the second ferment in the bottle followed by
a year on the yeast lees before disgorging. This time on lees is crucial to allow the yeast cells to break down and release their goodness back into the wine.
