Dromana Estate 2010 Blanc de Blanc
Blanc de Blanc, meaning white from white in French is a sparkling variety made purely from white grapes. In this instance we have made ours from 100% Chardonnay grapes sourced from the Macedon ranges, this was the last of the fruit that we sourced from outside our vineyard.
This Blanc de Blanc was made in the traditional méthode champenoise, which requires a secondary fermentation in the bottle. This secondary fermentation is accomplished by adding a mixture of sugar and yeast to still wine. This wine is then bottled and capped, with a bottle cap similar to ones found on beer bottles – not a cork.
The yeast acts on the sugar and the resulting carbon dioxide remains trapped in the bottle. Quality sparkling wines are usually left on their lees for several months, even years. This Blanc de Blanc has been left for 8 years before it was disgorged; meaning the cap was removed and replaced with the traditional cork with wire cage.
The delicate combination of yeast and toast to the nose, zesty & citrus flavours make this wine the perfect duo for fish & Shellfish, particularly oysters as well as Parmesan based dishes.
