In the cellar
The grapes were brought to the cellar and destalked and crushed. After the conventional low temperature fermentation and wine making process is completed, the alcohol is removed from the finished wine with no additions and chemical free, by using cutting edge technology where the wine is put through a spinning cone at low temperatures in a vacuum. Before bottling the wine is flushed with Carbon Dioxide to create its lively sparkle.
Elegantly labelled in a classical Champagne shaped bottle, closed with natural cork and a wire muzzle. In the glass, the wine is a pale golden straw with vibrant bubbles rushing to the surface. The aromas are of bright sub-tropical fruits, desiccated pineapple, passion fruit and ripe mango. The palate is delicate and generous and alive with the aromas making a reprise with winter melon and sweet tropical limes at the ending. Well balanced and harmonious.
The Norah’s Valley Satin Sparkling is a great glass on its own, as a mid-morning refresher, as an aperitif, and is an excellent food partner. Perfect for celebration, though not specifically. Serve in an ice bucket, chilled at between 6°C and 10°C. As the wine is dry, smoked fish canapés, a vegetarian Risotto, and surprisingly, delicately flavoured cheese, cow, sheep or goat, all make perfect partners.
