A cold, wet winter led into a cool spring – ideal conditions for fruit set and slow ripening. The Chardonnay from our Pemberton block is selected for The Yilgarn because it develops intense fruit flavours, whilst maintaining significant acid levels – crucial in the development of méthode traditionelle sparkling wines.
The Yilgarn Blanc de Blancs has been produced using 100% handpicked Chardonnay from the estate vineyard in Pemberton. The wine was made using the ‘Traditional Methode’ of secondary fermentation in the bottle, followed by 36 months on yeast lees before being disgorged. This extended time on contact with its lees helped develop the secondary flavours that added great complexity and texture to the palate.

The wine spends 36 months on yeast lees. Made entirely from Chardonnay. It's squeaky and fresh-feeling, bright with nectarine and just ripe pineapple scents and flavours. It shows faint cashew nut savouriness and has a crisp, fine bead. As an aperitif style it's a decent drink.
