Wildwater Sparkling Pignoletto 2022

$35

A crisp bright sparkling using the ‘methode traditionelle’.

Our third vintage of a sparkling wine using our Pignoletto grapes which are grown in the Harvey Hills at our Wildwater Vineyard.

The label has been created especially for us from a commissioned painting by local artist Yvonne Chapman and friend of Vineyard 28. It reflects the Wildwater vineyard terroir, its landmark towering gum tree and the guinea fowl who live amongst the vines.

“Sold Out, but there is availability at the cellar door for Wine Club Members.”

Average Age of Vines:Grafted, approximately – 4 years.
Yield per Hectare:1.4 mt/Ha
Harvest Date:16th Febuary 2022
Winemaking:The grapes were whole bunch pressed and fermented to dryness in stainless steel. It was then bottled and commenced secondary ferment in May 2022. It was then spent 14 months on lees, before being disgorged in August 2023. We use the ‘methode traditionelle’ to make this wine with minimal intervention, allowing the Pignoletto grape to shine.
History:Pignoletto originates from the Emilio Romagna area in Italy. It takes its name from Pigna’, the Italian for pinecone, on account of its small, tight grape clusters.
Food Pairing:We believe it is well suited to foods with a salty content. It can be enjoyed as an aperitif with fresh pear and dry cheddar, or equally with a delicious feed of good old-fashioned fish and chips.
Cellaring:Up to 3 years.
