2021 Sparrow & Vine Sparkling ChardHoney
No Added Preservatives
Notes from Brendan, the man behind S&V...
We like mixing things up here, and a like a pun too with this blend of Chardonnay and honey. In vintage 2021, we made a skin-contact Chardonnay with fruit sourced from Tumbarumba in NSW. After pressing the grapes, we had lovely, juicy, leftover skins. They were too good to waste, so we soaked the skins in water to extract sugar and flavour, mixed that with pure local honey and let the fermentation gods do their stuff. The result is a unique, naturally sparkling wine, zesty with flavours of grapefruits and flowers. Zero additions, zero waste. Not filtered so some sediment is present.
