Sea Urchin Sparkling Brut
This wine is made with select fruit from more than one vintage, allowing for a wine that is consistent in style and taste with every production cycle, as has been the way in Champagne for hundreds of years.
The Sea Urchin Sparkling Brut is made from select vineyards of Chardonnay grapes. The grapes were harvested and pressed on a gentle cycle to minimise phenolics and then fermented to produce the best possible base wine. The base wine was kept on yeast lees for a number of months to add complexity while maintaining freshness. Secondary fermentation took place in pressurized tanks (this is known as the Charmat method) and then bottled under pressure, trapping the carbon dioxide in solution to capture a fine bead.
Sea Urchin Sparkling Brut is made to be an easy drinking sparkling wine. It displays clean lemon citrus fragrance along with lifted floral blossom, toffee almonds, Crème Brûlée and underlying hints of vanilla and rose water. On the palete the wine shows some honey toast and poached pears , which then showcases a creamy softness, more Crème Brûlée, quince and a long refreshing finish.
Try with fresh oysters, sugar cured salmon, soft cheeses, chicken salads.
