The base for this wine was produced from 80% Margaret River Pinot Noir and 20% Manjimup Chardonnay. Use of riper grapes, spontaneous yeast and malo-lactic fermentations, barrel aging and no filtration results in a rich, fully developed base wine. After 3 years of bottle aging the resulting wine offers a fine integration of incisive fruit flavours with characteristic "toasty" yeast, a full creamy palate and a lively mousee.

Winemaker Harold Osborne has a long and rich history in the winemaking industry.  After graduating from Fresno State in 1972 Harold worked for Napa Valley’s Schramsberg Champagne Cellars as a winemaker from 1973 until 1981. When asked why he left, Harold replied,” after 8 ½ years of working in a cave, I needed to work on my tan”.

Being one of the first “flying” winemaker consultants, this entailed Harold being flown to various parts of the world as numerous wineries utilized his expertise. In Australia for Capementelle Winery, in France for Chateau Coutet Barsac and in New Zealand as Pelorus Winemaker for Cloudy Bay Winery.

With 27 years of sparkling wine experience, American winemaker Harold Osborne “H” practices the best of the old world techniques and new world technology in Margaret River. The wine is produced using riper grapes, spontaneous yeast and malo-lactic fermentations, barrel fermentation and aging and no filtration. Drinks beautifully
