"Try to find sparkling wines from Australia's Tasmania Island. You'll be impressed, I promise. Maybe even astonished at the degree of refinement and sheer—dare I say it?—Champagne-like elegance of Tasmania sparkling wine." Matt Kramer, Wine Spectator, USA.
Apogee Deluxe Vintage Brut 2019
100% Single vineyard (Chardonnay 63 %, Pinot Noir 21%, Fromenteau 13%, Pinot Meunier 3%) 12.9% alc/vol.
Slightly above average temperature year with about normal rainfall and a dry finish during grape ripening has delivered excellent flavour style and intensity. Harvest date 26 March 2019. Tiraged 22 December 2019, 30 months on lees. “Pale green gold hue, the bouquet has white flower aromas, complex oyster shell, spiced strawberry brioche and impressive mid-palate fullness followed by a long finish.” The big news with this wine is that the Chardonnay component is the highest in our history at 63% which delivers finesse in warmer years.

Apogee Alto Pinot Noir 2021
Only our early maturing Dijon clones (Pinot Noir clones 777 and115) go into this wine. A dry, cool season. Harvested 12 April 2021. Exceptional alcohol for this cool site of 14.2%. 100% French oak. Bigger than 2020, deep ruby with brooding earthy aromas, not obvious oak and a mix of savoury notes and red berry preserve in the Burgundy tradition. The palate is round, rich with long sweet fruit flavours and fresh acidity, mid- tannins on finish. This is our biggest and most complex Pinot Noir so far and needs time to develop. Drink 2023-2028.
