2018 Chalari Wines Merlot Riesling Sauvignon Blanc
|Region||Perth Hills, WA|
All Chalari wine is small batch, small parcels of grapes and selected from the best vineyards within WA. The wine is made ‘garagiste’ style at a small winery setup at Alexi Christidis’s property in Roleystone (Perth Hills). To let the fruit speak for itself in the wine, intervention is only used where necessary. Unnecessary fining and additions are not performed on the wine.
|Wine||Petillant Naturel is an ancient method of making sparkling wine. The wine is bottled just before fermentation is finished to trap remaining bubbles in the finished wine. Merlot (95%), Riesling (3%), Sauvignon Blanc (2%). 2 hours of skin, tiny amount of riesling and sauvignon blanc for spritz. Fresh, dry, grapefruit pith and zest. Undisgorged, cloudy, funky and fun, this bright sparkling wine is great for all occasions.|
|Tasting Note||Zesty - Crunchy - Dry|
