Pale straw in colour, Angas Brut displays distinctive varietal fruit characters. The Pinot Noir has strawberry cream and biscuit characters which gain complexity “en tirage”. Chardonnay contributes finesse and length with a hint of citrus fruits. Nutty yeast characters add complexity and texture, malolactic fermentation adds creamy mouth feel and the cleansing acidity finishes with a hint of toasty, strawberry flavours.
The classic sparkling wine varieties of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are sourced from a diverse range of sites including the warm inland regions of the South Australian Riverland through to the cool elevation of the Adelaide Hills. Vineyard sites are carefully selected to harness those generous flavours essential in sparkling characteristics. Gentle handling in the winery ensures the fruit’s flavour and delicacy is maximised. After blending, the final base wine is bottle fermented, and then spends time on light lees until tirage to both maintain freshness and increase the complexity of flavour.
