Winemaker Notes
The grapes were picked clean at a low sugar level and then pressed gently whole cluster to a very low juice yield (475L/tonne). A cool fermentation ensued using Prise de Mousse yeast and then the wine was finned and filtered in preparation for first bottling. Tirage bottling occurred in the spring of 2011 using a DV10 yeast. The secondary fermentation was conducted at cool temperatures, in the bottle in a traditional fashion. After more than 27 months en tirage, the wine was cooled and disgorged manually by our skilled cellar staff. We added the liqueur d’expedition, topped the bottles and sealed them under an extra cool crown cap.

Tasting Notes
The 2010 Home Vineyard Sparkling Chenin Blanc has a light straw colour with a clear hue and a mousse of small bubbles. The nose has an inviting finesse and pure harmony between the granny smith apple character and the aroma of freshly baked bread, from the yeast autolysis. The nose continues with an elegance of crisp pear, buttered toast and nuances of honeydew melon. The palate is a perfect match to the tantalizing nose. The 2010 Home Vineyard Sparkling Chenin Blanc is focused, tight and crisp with a great depth of flavour and a medium bodied mousse of fine bubbles that fill your mouth. The subtle complexity and flavours arise from the old vines and the great terroir of the Home Vineyard and its Ratnip soil. The palate sparkles with citrus fruits showcasing grapefruit, lemon rind, lime zest and quince. Completing the layers of flavours on the palate is shortbread crumbs, honeysuckle, toasted almond and yeasty bakery notes from the two years of lees contact.

Vineyard Notes
In the 2010 vintage we kept 4 rows of our famous Old Vines Chenin Blanc to use for sparkling wine. These old vines were planted in 1968 and they produce grapes that show great finesse and concentration. We expect nothing less from vines of this age and from great terroir!
