Mitchell Harris Sabre Sparkling 2014

The Mitchell Harris flagship. This vintage sees the mix as 85% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Noir and the alcohol dropped a little. Fruit sourced from the Macedon and Pyrenees ranges. “Methode Traditionelle,” and 39 months on yeast lees. Dosage of 4g/L of sugar to keep things fresh and crisp.

Mitchell Harris, Sabre, Sparkling, Macedon, Pyrenees, 2014

Micro-bead with a fast paced reach for the surface. Chardonnay dominance proven on the nose with peach and lemon fruit, complex hints of marzipan and nutty lees-derived aromas. Delicate mousse on the palate with a fine, tight nature. Refined citrus flavours sit high and last long. Not as rich as previous vintages, more in an apertif style but has the potential for development with appropriate maturation.

RRP: $45
