Tasting Notes

Aromas of apples and citrus, and a palate of a hint of stone fruit with lemon curd and a lime yogurt.

Technical Notes

Fruit was hand sorted, crushed and destemmed. Cold soak maceration on skins for two days. Cold fermentation in stainless steel. Cuvée Joy is a true, classic méthode traditionnelle sparkling wine in the style of the best Champagne houses of France. This bubbly is a ‘blanc de blancs’ (white from whites), made only from Chardonnay grapes.

Reviews

“From the festooned crown-cap closure to the very last bubble, this Chardonnay – Traditional Method sparkler’s a winner. It delivers persistent, fine-bead bubbles and aromas of orchard fruit and citrus. Stylish and flavourful, the palate’s treated to lively river of lemon curd and lime yoghurt interlaced with nectarine and notions of Granny Smith apple carried along by oodles of delightful bubbles. It finishes crisp, refreshing and value packed. Bravo!” 4.5 Stars - June 2015
