2010 Coldstream Pinot Hills Pinot Noir Chardonnay
Wine Rating 
 
93

Sparkling wine production is nothing new for Coldstream Hills, with creation of bubbles in place since 1995, this particular release is a traditional Pinot Noir Chardonnay blend that comes from the Deer Farm Vineyard in Gladysdale, a site that produced excellent Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The quality of the fruit and winemaking is on full show here, the nose has oyster shell, citrus and a touch of brioche. The palate has a lovely fine bead with mineral acid and citrus drive being complemented by just enough autolysis richness to add a creaminess to the palate.

The finish has very good length, with this wine to reward short to medium term cellaring.
