Our sparkling Blanc de Blanc is made in the traditional method and is produced from the highest quality fruit each vintage which is specifically selected to showcase the varietal characteristics and terroir of the South Burnett.
Il Taglio means ‘the cut’ or ‘the blend’ in Italian. For this wine we wanted to showcase the best of our Mediterranean varieties, ‘those which have made the cut’. Our 2013 “taglio” is a blend of Shiraz (36%), Nebbiolo (34%), Grenache (14%) Barbera (6%) Sangiovese (6%) and Mourvedre (3%). Each parcel was kept separate, in a mix of old and new oak, until the final moments when meticulous blending sessions were carried out to ensure just the right proportion of each was used to make the best wine possible.
Barbera is an Italian varietal grown mainly in the northern regions of Italy. Known for its high acidity it is often aged for long periods in oak barrels or blended with other varietals to soften the palate. Our 2015 Barbera was fermented in open vessels and hand plunged before spending 12 months in oak just to enhance the complexity and body of the wine. In the South Burnett our warmer climate naturally helps to bring this varietal into better balance and as a result our Barbera is 100% and has been left unfined and bottled while still fresh and youthful to highlight its delicious berry and cherry notes.
