 Tasting Note 

60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay. Loftia is famously crisp and zesty, the perfect aperitif style sparkling. Aromas of baked red apple and lemon crème brulée on the nose precede the creamy mousse and citrus finish. 

Winemaking 

Different parcels of fruit are all hand-picked and then fermented in stainless steel tanks. In 2016 partial Malolactic ferment took place to soften the palate and add complexity while retaining the perfect natural acidity in the blend. Tirage (bottling) happened in late winter of 2016 before leaving the bottles to develop with time on lees in the cool, dark cellars. 

Each bottle is riddled and disgorged on site in our Longwood winery. The dosage liquor added at disgorging to add the finishing sweetening element is crafted using a blend of base wines and is then aged for a minimum of 12 months. 

Vineyard 

We source fruit from sites located above 550m in the Lenswood and Piccadilly Valley regions of the Adelaide Hills. These sites consistently produce outstanding Pinot and Chardonnay for sparkling wine.
