The PUP Sparkling Chardonnay 2010

The PUP Sparkling Chardonnay 2010

 95% Wylpena vineyard Chardonnay (100 year old Grenache stock that was grafted to chardonnay a couple of decades ago. choosing only shaded bottom cordon picked bunches) – fresh & vibrant aromatic upfront fruit

4% old bottle aged Pup Sauvignon Blanc – added complexity
1% barrel aged liquor of 18-year-old Pedro Ximinez (1991) – adding a sweet rancio funk nose
 
Naturally fermented on lees in a pressure tank for 6 weeks.  On the nose, the wine shows a delicate yeast character.  It also has a fine bead, indicative of properly completed fermentation.  Great mid palate crunch shows off the wines lovely natural acidity.
 
DogRidge is the first winery in the world to use “Encore” by a closure invented and manufactured in Adelaide by Zork!
