Storm Ridge Chardonnay Pinot Noir

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Here’s a wine that is the essence of Yarra Valley, taking the Chardonnay and Pinot grapes of the region and turning them into an effervescent celebration. A good deal of complexity achieved here with some yeast aromas amidst the citrus fruit of the Chardonnay. Fresh and firm on the palate, it balances yeasty complexity with fresh berry and lemon fruit. Impressive length and acids on offer here that would suggest a fine match for smoked salmon.

Winemaker's Notes

Made from 85% Chardonnay (of which all but a small proportion is estate grown) and 15% estate Pinot Noir. This wine spent 24 months on lees and has only been recently disgorged.

There is lovely yeast on the nose broadened by the predominance of Chardonnay used in the blend with just a hint of lemon and citrus flavours

On the palate, the wine has lovely freshness with some spicy Pinot characters, combining with the yeasty bread flavours.

This sparkling wine is crisp with good acidity and length.
