Apogee 2014 DELUXE Vintage Sparkling
Winery : Apogee
Andrew Pirie has been a pioneer of the Tasmanian wine industry, having established Pipers Brook Vineyard in the mid 1970s. After many twists and turns in his corporate career he is back with his very own project, this the focus is on sparkling wine, the jewel of ultra cool Lebrina region.
Apogee is produced from a single site and is entitled to use the term 'Deluxe Method' to describe its production.
Winemaker notes: 'Light gold with fine mousse and a suitable foamy collar when poured. Aromas range from bready, yeasty overtones through to perfumed red fruits and lemon-rind with a faint salty oyster-shell character which is part of our terroir. For a sparkling the wine is full-bodied on the mid-palate thanks to the cool climate pinot noir component but the cool climate chardonnay ensures a lean and fresh finish.'
