Awarded 95pts in the 2021 Halliday Wine Companion. This is a brand new wine (the 5th) in the Swift range, the first disgorgment of the Blanc de Noirs. A very individual wine for Swift Sparkling, given that all other Swift wines are chardonnay dominant. This wine has been inspired by some of Champagne’s notable grower producers, where we have attempted to produce an interesting, high quality wine first that just happen to be sparkling as well. Dosage: 3.0g/L Tirage date: September 2016 Disgorge date: December 2019 Time on lees: 39 months

Description

Awarded 95pts in the 2021 Halliday Wine Companion. This is a brand new wine (the 5th) in the Swift range, the first disgorgment of the Blanc de Noirs. A very individual wine for Swift Sparkling, given that all other Swift wines are chardonnay dominant. This wine has been inspired by some of Champagne’s notable grower producers, where we have attempted to produce an interesting, high quality wine first that just happen to be sparkling as well. Ripe red fruit flavours, some savouriness from barrel fermentation, cloudy juice for depth and texture. It is a little left of field, intentionally so. Viva la difference. Sourced from a single vineyard with 2 different pinot noir blocks, all hand harvested, whole bunch pressed, fermented & matured separately until blending. MLF is minimal to preserve acidity and freshness. 30% of the blend was barrel fermented in old French oak hogheads. Tirage bottled in early spring following vintage.

Wine Cellaring

With over 3 years on secondary yeast lees in bottle the wine developed some typical yeast lees complexity. However, it will retain is freshness and vibrancy for quite some time now that it has been disgorged.
