Red Cliffs, Victoria
This wine sits above it’s weight, packed with fruit and flavour. The grapes are sourced from North Western Victoria.
Now a good sparkling wine is all about the balance. Here you have a soft but fresh finish, the complex flavour rolls into a mouth-filling tickle and slowly melts seductively away. Sassy and smart, Sunnycliff is an enchanting expression of elegance, finesse, minerality and balance. A desirable accomplice for every celebration!
Classic varieties, early picking, gentle processing of exclusively free run juice, good attention to juice composition and clarity, cold and slow fermentation with classic sparkling wine yeast and then extended yeast lees aging – these were the hallmarks of the base wine production.
Delicacy and freshness resulted. The different varietal parcels were blended and a ‘reserve’ volume included for depth and complexity. Then a second fermentation was initiated to naturally charge the wine with its fizz and to bring everything into harmony.
