Lusca Sparkling Wine

75cl

This is the first vintage of Sparkling Wine produced by David Llewellyn at Lusca Vineyard. It is a unique, single variety, Blanc de Noir wine, made exclusively from Cabernet Sauvignion grapes grown at Lusca vineyard. The grapes were gently pressed immediately after harvest, on 24th October 2018, gently extracting only the delicate bright pink colour from the skins of the grapes. The wine was cool fermented to full dryness and rested on the lees for 6 months, with intermittent stirring of the lees, before bottling. The wine was aged for 12 months in bottle, on its lees, before riddling and disgorging by hand.

Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Taste Good refreshing acidity, initially ripe black cherries leading into red summer berries, with that continuation of hints of toasted almonds and shortbread, and surprisingly good length on the palate
Nose It is reminiscent of French Champagne, but there are notes of summer red berries, with a hint of toasted almonds
Finish Creamy texture with very refreshing, pleasant, fine bubbles.
