Pollyanna Polly Sparkling White

d’Arenberg Pollyanna Polly Sparkling White

d’Arenberg Pollyanna Polly Sparkling White

A strikingly lifted nose of lemon zest, white blossoms, granny smith apple skin, and hints of freshly grilled nuts entices you to look deeper into the alluring bouquet. There you will find subtle hints of marzipan, cashew butter and the suggestion of freshly torched crème brûlée. The bead is very fine with a creamy persistent mousse. The delicate palate is a finely balanced act. A tight mineral acid line underpins generous white fleshed stone fruit poised in an energetic dance with an intriguing sea spray salinity. Ever licked an oyster shell? The finish is long and complex with yeast autolysis providing palate weight while a lemon curd acidity carries the focused mineral finish.

These traditional sparkling varieties are sourced from the cool climate Adelaide Hills, and are picked early to retain high natural acidity. Small batches of low yielding grapes are gently pressed in stainless steel basket presses. Following primary and partial malolactic fermentation the individual parcels are bottled and inoculated with yeast and sugar to encourage a secondary fermentation. The cuvee is fermented in the bottle to develop complexity for approximately four years. This is a dry style sparkling with minerality, a crisp acid backbone and layers of flowers, fruits and toasty savoury nuances – perfect for any celebration!

d'Arenberg

“d’Arenberg is an icon of the McLaren Vale, dating back to 1912. Chief winemaker Chester Osborn is the great-grandson of the founder, Joseph Rowe Osborn. Chester now oversees a stellar (and ever-expanding) range of strangely named and exquisitely crafted red and white wines.
The oldest of the d’Arenberg blocks were first planted in the 1880s with Shiraz, and still contribute to the wines today.”
