three wise Woongarra Three Wise Men Blanc de Noir (2011)

2010 was the first year that Woongarra experimented with making a small amount of Blanc de Noir -a sparkling white wine made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes using the methode Champenoise. We were pleasantly surprised with the result of the 2010, and it has certainly pleased many of our friends and customers – it was awarded a people’s choice award at the Federation Square wine showcase.

The 2011 Blanc de Noir was made following the same method. Pinot Noir grapes were hand-picked in to 10 kg buckets then chilled for several hours before being pressed very gently. The juice was fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The resulting exceptional quality wine was then bottled and underwent a second fermentation in the bottle to produce the bubbles. It spent 10 months on lees before being disgorged and topped up with 12g/l of sugar.

The 2011 has the same characteristics that made the 2010 a standout wine. It has a lovely tinge of rose, the palette is refreshing and dry and yet has an element of fruit and a varietal character that comes from the Pinot Noir.
