Harris Organic Wines
Champagne, Organic Wine, Swan Valley Wineries
Harris Organic is the only organic winery of all the Swan Valley Wineries.
Ripe organic Chardonnay was hand picked at our Swan Valley vineyard which includes only 375 Chardonnay vines. The fruit was crushed, destemmed and pumped into a ferment tank before draining and pressing. The ferment was started with our natural yeasts and continued at 20C. The ferment continued until the carbon dioxide gas production slowed. Once the sugar level was low the wine was pumped to tank with a little yeast lees for underground cellaring for 3 months. The wine was then sparkled and bottled to produce a brut style Methode Traditional sparkling bubbly blanc de blanc.
Method Traditional, (or if you like, Champagne) a high quality blanc de blanc wine has a very fine bead or 'bubble'. After a minimum of 12 months of maturation the bottles were hand riddled for seven days, they are then disgorged by hand and then crown capped - ready for immediate consumption. Alcohol is about 12% .
