Holly’s Garden ÜberBrut Sparkling NV
Grown high on the Whitlands plain in the Victorian Alps.
The base wine is a blend of 30% from a 10 year old solera as well as a blend of 30% two year old Blanc de Noir juice, 30% one year old Blanc de Noir and 10% new Chardonnay juice from Hoddles Creek.
Flavours in the zone of grapefruit and strawberry with terrific tension from the acid backbone.
In the cool-climate Whitlands high plateau region of Victoria, Holly’s Garden is home to voluptuous pinot gris and artisan sparkling wines. Their little amphitheatre is the warmest site in the very cool region. The continental location gives cool evenings, which allows the vines to ‘rest’ at night and delays the accumulation of sugar whilst retaining acidity and building flavour. This prolonged ‘hang time’ due to delayed ripening is vital to the production of great wine, and helps create the featured structure and length of Holly’s Garden wines.
