The Drama Queen
Every winery needs an attention seeking, exaggerated, overly emotional, dramatic, diva. Sometimes it’s the winemaker, sometimes the boss, or sometimes a family member! Fortunately not here, so we had to create one. Made in a proper vintage sparkling method, this wine is the real deal. If it was French, it would probably be triple the price!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ A true wine, with a bubbly hit! We loved It! – Kerry L.
Often balance takes blending; Pinot Noir adds richness fullness and weight, Chardonnay a bright and lively acidity and Pinot Meunier that little touch of strawberry. Almost always, quality requires patience; In this case, 5 years in bottle on lees before we could even think of popping a cork. It has been worth the wait.
Bouquet & Palate
An entire bakery of brioche. Early season strawberries, rose petals, pink lady apples, and just a titch of bay leaf. Berry-bagel and proper pretzel, all with the very lightest citrus twist. Hiding behind the fruit, deeper savoury characters. A multitude of bubbles ride light amidst the creamy texture. Crisp and linen-fresh it is phenomenally lingering and intense.
Every occasion is worthy of a little drama! The Drama Queen loves a cocktail party or any other celebratory event, like waking up in the morning. Pair with Canapes; bright tasty morsels ideally delivered with a flourish by impeccably trained wait staff at your favourite restaurant. Or anywhere really, it’ll still be tasty.
