Elevage Blanc de Blanc
This Blanc de Blanc was crafted through the traditional Charmat method, with special attention paid to its origin, a single vineyard situated at high altitude in the King Valley.
Élevage is a French wine making term, it is the process of nurturing the wine from fermentation to the perfect finished product. For Redbank, Elevage (el-e-vazh) is representative of the elevation of our vineyards and styles.
The bouquet is led by vibrant notes of lychee, complemented by lime aromas. In the background, a subtle hint of cremont adds depth. The palate opens with lychee, golden kiwi and pear. A lime citrus acid line gracefully traverses the mid-palate. Towards the back of the palate, a subtle creaminess adds a touch of luxury, balancing the bright acidity.
Winemaking: A neutral yeast was used to allow for pure fruit expression which shines through in this wine. To aid in mousse formation, the wine was left slightly heat unstable, adding to the overall texture and effervescence.
