Sparkling Organic Champagne – tasting every weekend in June. Sparkle up your June with a visit to our cellar door and try our Sparkling Organic Blanc de blanc Madeleine Claire …available for tasting every weekend in June. Duncan has been making Sparkling wine in the Swan Valley ‘Traditional Method’ (we are not allowed to call it Champagne). Basically means a second fermentation of the wine in the bottle you will open – the reason authentic Sparkling wine comes in heavier bottles. Disgorgement, by the way means that the neck of the sparkling bottle (stored upside-down and ‘riddled’ and turned a quarter circle each day)…is chilled to almost freezing. When the crown seal is removed, the contents of the neck (yeast lees) ejects rather spectacularly under pressure. The bottle is again sealed quickly, capped and labelled ready for you. If you are interested in seeing Duncan disgorging your wine - give us a call to make a time – (08) 9296 0216 – just make sure you wear wine-proof clothing! Otherwise just let us know how much we should put aside for you.
