Chandon ALTIUS Cuvee Brut 2012

Yarra Valley

  • Product details
    Our rare and locally focussed méthode traditionnelle sparkling wine, Chandon Yarra Valley Cuvée is blended from the classic grape varieties – Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The fruit for the Chandon Yarra Valley Cuvée was sourced from premium Yarra Valley vineyards, with Chardonnay leading the blend. The vineyards are trained to the standard vertical shoot positioning trellis to minimise the development of colour and tannins whilst maintaining excellent ripening and vibrancy of flavour.
  • Tasting notes
    Aromas of white nectarine, mirabelle plum, fresh flowers, cherry patisserie, elderflower with some subtle macadamia nut characters. Palate shows stone fruit and lemon curd characters, some florals and fine acidity balanced by a creamy texture coming from long yeast ageing. An excellent match for pork and ginger stir fry, livarot (soft white mould goat cheese) and chicken with tarragon.
