Fermoy Estate

2017 Vintage Brut Premier

$45

Varietals (%’S):  60% Chardonnay; 40% Pinot Noir

Appearance:  Pale straw colour with green tints, brilliant clarity, ultra-fine and persistent bead.

Aroma:  Bright and vibrant aromas of lemon blossom, oyster shell, baked apple & strawberry tart and lightly toasted nuts.

Palate:  Made in the traditional method, this wine has spent over 4 years on lees in bottle prior to disgorgement. This extended contact time allows for more complex characters and textures to evolve – with brioche, curd, oyster shell and flint complementing delicate citrus & berry fruit notes. A beautifully soft and delicate mousse and fine, persistent bead carry the flavours and continually refresh the palate.

Oak Detail: The base wine was partially fermented in seasoned French oak barriques and puncheons to help build texture and mouthfeel.

Cellaring:  Ready for immediate drinking and will continue to evolve and drink well over the next 4-5 years.

Food Pairing: Oysters, canapés.

Alcohol Volume:  12.5%
Acidity:  pH 3.25; TA 7.0g/L
Residual Sugar:  7.0g/L
