Sinapius 2017 Blanc De Noirs
White (wine) from black (grapes). This wine was made from 85% Pinot Noir and 15% Pinot Meunier sourced from our coolest east facing block, originally planted in 1998. The 2017 vintage was a memorable vintage which resulted in low yielding Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier of great intensity. This makes for a generous style of sparkling wine, after 2.5 years on lees, yet still with great finesse and elegance that is synonymous with the long gentle ripening period of the Pipers River region.
A light straw hue, this barrel fermented sparkling wine has aromas of strawberry danish on the nose, set against a rich yellow Mirabelle plum, and fine mixed spice background. Mineral infused red fruits and finely structured tannins, this wine has a beautifully fine mousse, with lovely chalky minerality and refreshing acidity on the finish. Perfect drinking now however will only improve with further time under cork. Disgorged 4 September 2020. 2g/L dosage.
