Our 2011 Method Champenoise sparkling, due for release in 2013. This wine is being made to make use of the fruit from 2011 which was able to ripen very slowly. As the climate is perfect for sparkling grapes this has made a wine of exceptional quality. Currently this wine is resting in bottle, secondary fermentation yeasts having been added! We are also making a MC Vintage sparkling Pinot in 2013….
