Willow Creek Tulum Brut

Cracka Review

Appearance: Pale straw, with a very fine and steady bead.

Bouquet: Hints of strawberry and cream typical of a pinot noir-dominant blend, and with the grilled almond and honey notes coming from autolysis and extended lees ageing.

Palate: Full-flavoured with distinct pinot character, but with a delicacy and restraint coming from the chardonnay. The wine is well balanced, with mouth-filling mousse, and a seamless, long finish. Perfect drinking now, but will gain complexity with more time.

Willow Creek Tulum Brut

Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2005 Vintage) says
This 60/40 pinot noir-chardonnay blend is sourced from the Willow Creek estate vineyard on the Mornington Peninsula - it has a savoury, almost earthy nose with toasted nuts and gentle brambly aromas. The pinot kicks in on the palate with wild strawberry flavour and crisp, tart, acid crunch, really punchy and lively through the finish.
