55% Colombard, 45% Chardonnay. A festive sparkling, pale gold with a fine, persistent bead. Yeast and fruity aromas abound and carry through onto the palate, with luscious, strawberry fruit sweetness. The finish is soft and clean. The lasting spritz makes this a great celebratory wine for any occasion. Savour as an aperitif or with fresh oysters, smoked salmon or caviar.

Misty Mooring White

A blend of Traminer, Gordo and Riesling. This wine is a fruit salad blend of fresh clean fruity wine grape varieties. The colour is a brilliant straw gold. In the glass peach and green apple aromas abound, with hints of tropical fruits and citrus. The palate is fruit driven and flavoursome and finishes with a crisp, zingy acid that makes it an ideal food wine.

A pale straw yellow with appealing green hues this wine has attractive lifted tropical and citrus notes. On the medium to full palate lemony citrus characters with some passionfruit and peach precede a hint of creaminess and a clean long finish. Enjoy this wine well chilled, along, or with any lighter foods. Particularly good with seafood.

Three distinguished sites in McLaren Vale were selected for this wine with vines of 40 to over 60 years old.

The palate follows seamlessly from the initial aromas and builds with perfectly intertwined flavours of spice, dark chocolate of great poise and length. The velvety, smooth tannins linger in the mouth.
