Producer
Husband-and-wife team Hamish and Kate Laurie run this boutique winery hidden in the impenetrable hills overlooking Adelaide. Kate trained in Champagne, and the influence is clear – these wines are game-changingly good. Quite simply, they set a new bar for elegance, complexity and balance in New World sparkling wine.

Vineyard
The grapes come from vineyards in the Lenswood area of Adelaide Hills. The vines are twenty-five years old, planted at relatively high density on very steep slopes of clay over broken shale. The fruit was hand-harvested early in the season.

Winery
The crop was whole-bunch pressed, with the pressings kept separate, then fermented at 15oC in stainless steel tanks using Champagne yeast. A remaining parcel of Pinot Noir was fermented as red wine in open top fermenters with daily plunging. The base wines went through malolactic before blending clear base wine with around 10-15% red wine to achieve the pale pink colour. The blend was then bottled for the second fermentation. After some time on the lees, the bottles were riddled and disgorged by hand.

Taste
A delightful blend of depth and finesse, this traditional-method rosé offers expressive red fruit aromas lifted by extremely fine bubbles. There is real succulence on the palate, and then a refreshing dry finish.

Press
“Bright, light puce, no hint of salmon; pinot noir and chardonnay from the same site as Loftia; the strawberry fruit is as strong and clear as you could ever expect to find, but the finish is crisp and dry.” – 90 points, James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, July 2013
