Collection: Aged wine on the lees

Embark on a journey into the refined world of our Aged on the lees, Sparkling Wine Collection, a testament to the time-honoured artistry of the Traditional / Champagne Method. Crafted with precision and aged for a minimum of 36 months on the lees, each bottle narrates a story of sophistication and complexity.

The Traditional Method, also known as the Champagne Method, is a meticulous process that involves second fermentation in the bottle. This traditional approach imparts an unparalleled depth of flavour and character to sparkling wines.

The journey begins with a carefully selected blend (such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay), or a single grape varietal such as the Durella grape, celebrated for its crisp acidity and lively profile.

In our featured selection as the second fermentation takes place in the bottle, the wine rests on the lees, the spent yeast cells, for a minimum of 36 months. This extended period of maturation on the lees contributes to the development of intricate flavours, creating a symphony of notes that dance on the palate. The result is a sparkling wine of unparalleled complexity, where each sip is a celebration of craftsmanship and dedication.

The maturation on the lees not only imparts a richness to the flavour profile but also produces a creamy textured perlage, the fine and persistent bubbles that elevate the drinking experience. These delicate bubbles, born from a patient aging process, caress the palate, creating a luxurious and velvety sensation.

Indulge in the sophistication of our mature Sparkling Wine Collection, from our prize-winning cantinas Fongaro, Gianni Tessari, Zambon Vulcano and more where the marriage of the Traditional Method gives birth to a truly exceptional bubbly wine.

Whether you're a seasoned enthusiast or a newcomer to the world of sparkling wines, our collection promises a journey of discovery and delight.
