Product Information

Our vintage champagne is made from perfectly ripe organic Chardonnay. The grapes were hand-picked at our vineyard which has only 375 chardonnay vines. The fruit was crushed, destemmed and pumped into our "new" 1988 pneumatic press for draining the free run. The ferment was started with our natural yeasts and continued at 20C. The ferment continued until the carbon dioxide gas production slowed and the sugar level was very low. The wine was pumped to a stainless steel tank with a little yeast lee for cellaring for 6 months. The wine was then sparkled and bottled to produce a brut style methode traditional sparkling bubbly blanc de blanc style, also called vintage champagne.

What is Methode Traditional vintage champagne - sparkling wine?

This traditional vintage champagne wine has a very fine bead, ie, 'bubbles'. After a minimum of 24 months of maturation, the sparkling wine bottles were hand riddled for a minimum of seven days, they are then disgorged by hand and immediately crown capped - ready for consumption.  The alcohol level is 12.5%.

NB: Please chill the vintage champagne sparkling wine bottle before serving and note the bottle is under lots of pressure; remove the sparkling wine cap carefully and quickly with a good-quality bottle opener.

A delightful dry white "champagne-style" vintage sparkling wine we call "Madeleine Claire", after my daughter.

The current vintage champagne release is 2017.

Madeleine Claire Label

The organic red and the organic white sparkling “Madeleine Claire” are made from organic shiraz and organic chardonnay respectively.  They have exactly the same labels as we only make a small amount of sparkling shiraz and therefore it would be costly to have a different label.

The organic sparkling chardonnay has a gold foil hood one can see the white wine in the bottle, whereas the sparkling Shiraz has a black hood and it is very hard to see through the bottle.

Whichever sparkling wine you have, I am sure you will enjoy it. We do.
