Background
Heifer Station vineyard is situated between 860-900m elevation on the undulating slopes of Mt Canobolas. The high altitude and aspect of the vineyard coupled with the maturity of the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir at this site make for a stunning sparkling wine with great complexity. The fruit is carefully hand-picked to ensure premium quality.
Vineyard Notes
2011 Was a cold wet year for the Orange region, white wines and sparkling varietals did well as optimal ripening is not required and crunchy acidity is plentiful. Pinot noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay combine in this classic style.
Tasting Notes
The marriage of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier in this wine, coupled with its time on lees has delivered a sparkling wine with great balance and complexity. The wine has a lovely nuttiness with a yeasty brioche character from its extended time on bottle lees. A small batch made with fruit from one of the highest vineyards in Orange. *Genisse is the French word for Heifer.
