Awarded Best Australian NV Cuvée at the 2021 Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships in London. The Swift range has also been awarded Best Sparkling in NSW for the last four consecutive years. Swift Sparkling wines are single vineyard, high elevation wines that sit alongside the best sparkling wines from across Australia. The Cuvée is usually chardonnay dominant but embraces the complexity that pinot noir and reserve wines can bring to the blend. Long lees ageing (approx 60 months) adds richness. Low dosage enables greater purity and expressiveness. Source from a single vineyard with 2 different chardonnay blocks and 2 different pinot noir blocks, all hand harvested, whole bunch pressed, fermented & matured separately until blending. MLF is minimal to preserve acidity and freshness. Tirage bottled in early spring following vintage. Wonderful freshness, vibrancy and complexity which can only be achieved with great fruit, gentle handling and patience – time in bottle. Terrific intensity of white fruit, florals, strawberry, brioche & nuttiness. Fine mousse is lively on the palate. Delicately balanced dosage. Long fine palate.
