Tasting Note The 2012 Loftia blend comprises 70% Pinot Noir, giving richness and spice and 30% Chardonnay, providing structure and focus on the palate. Ageing for a minimum of 24 months on lees adds complexity to the fresh citrus, red apple and spring blossom aromas. The palate is crisp with a lingering, mouth-watering finish. A persistent fine bead and creamy mousse gives extra lift to these delicious aromas and flavours.
Winemaking Different parcels of fruit are all hand-picked and whole bunch pressed separately into tank for settling. Fermentation of these small batches lasts around 12 days and in 2012 only some parcels of wine were put through malo-lactic ferment to soften the acidity and add complexity. Others retained the full acidity to add tension and structure in the final blend.
Blending of the base wines is carried out in early spring before we tirage (bottle) the wine. The bottles are then stored at 15`, which is just right for a long consistent second ferment. After a minimum of 24 months ageing on lees, each bottle is riddled and disgorged on site in our Longwood winery
Small batches are disgorged at a time to allow the remaining bottles to continue developing complexity on lees as long as possible. The dosage liquor added at disgorging is crafted using a blend of base wines and is then aged for a minimum of 12 months.
Vineyard We source fruit from 3 vineyard sites located above 550m in the Lenswood district of the Adelaide Hills. These sites consistently produce outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay for sparkling wine.
