NV Tasmanian Cuvee

Wine Making

Barringwood’s Non-vintage cuvee was crafted with handpicked fruit from our Evandale vineyard located at the southern end of the Tamar Valley. It is a blend of Chardonnay 58%, Pinot Noir 41% and Pinot Meunier 1%, based on 2021 vintage.

Grapes were whole bunch-pressed to tank for primary fermentation, then underwent malolactic fermentation (100%) and batonnage to develop texture and mouth feel.  The base wine was then bottled with a yeast addition and the secondary (bubble generating) fermentation completed under crown seal.  After a minimum of 18 months lees aging each bottle was riddled, disgorged and dosaged.
