Seppelt Salinger Vintage Cuvée 2013 (Sparkling Wine)

Pale white gold with a fine bead and persistent mousse.

The nose shows citrus and green apple aromas with brioche and nutty characters derived from ageing on lees.

The palate combines delicate citrus fruits with toasted brioche and creamy lees characters supported by a fine mineral acid structure. This produces an elegant, balanced wine with great length.

"Salinger returned to Methode Traditionelle in 2013 (2002 to 2012 it was transfer method). The fruit for this wine comes mainly from Drumborg Vineyard but also from a couple of growers. The shift is to more chardonnay, gradually, says winemaker Adam Carnaby. It is still 60% pinot noir here (50% will be the balance from 2016 release). This wine has 30% chardonnay and 10% pinot meunier in the mix. Typically a tight, minerally style.

Really fine perfume shows sea spray, faint nougat and marzipan, pretty floral talc, green apple. Crunchy textured, lean in the palate but nicely balanced by foamy, freshening mousse of bubbles. Good length of flavour. Very mouthwatering finish with grapefruity tang. Delicious, easy drinking."

Seppelt is one of the pioneers of Australian Sparkling wine, producing its first vintage in the 1890s under the stewardship of Hans Irvine and Frenchman Charles Pierlot. An enduring dedication to sparkling excellence has been passed down by generations of winemaking greats for over 125 years, ensuring that the current range of sparkling wines both reflect the best of old traditions and modern innovation.

Produced using the traditional method of sparkling production, individual components of pristine Henty fruit were fermented separately before being blended to form the base wine. Seppelt Salinger Vintage Cuvée is bottle-fermented and matured for a minimum of three years on lees before disgorging, and is a sparkling wine with great elegance and finesse.

The 2013 Vintage consists of 48% Pinot Noir, 38% Chardonnay & 14% Pinot Meunier. 36 months in bottle on secondary fermentation lees before disgorgement in the Méthode Traditionelle.

After a wet winter in 2012, the spring leading into 2013 was relatively cool and then blossomed into a sunny and warm summer which continued well into March. Summer temperatures were only slightly above average, but the sunshine hours were truly atypical. The vines progressed steadily through the season but ripened rapidly, spurred on by the sunshine hours. Winery Notes
