Awarded the Winewise Champion Sparkling 2020 against the best sparklings in the country. We have used the two classic Champagne varieties to create the Swift Vintage – Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The 2011 vintage is a hard act to follow but the 2012 more than accounts for itself in another outstanding release with extended yeast lees ageing. The combination of a citrus backbone and red fruited mid-palate produces a lovely fruit profile. Add in the 6 years of lees ageing in bottle to build flavour and textural complexity and a touch of aldehyde to really lift the aromatics and you can see why we get excited about this wine .
