2014 North Wine Contrefort Cuvee Louis Cremant
Wine Rating 
 
96

The first sparkling produced by Etienne Manger which is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that was aged on lees for 7 years prior to release. 

The extended time on lees has slowly worked away at a textural and pure expression of cool climate fruit from the Macedon Ranges. Chiseling lines of richness and bready complexity are balanced by taut stone fruits with citrus zest and a marzipan edge. The acidity and mouthfeel to bring things home is world class with textural grip and driving length.

A wonderful wine available in minute quantities.
