The name derives from the Sapling Yard creek which flows across their cool-climate Braidwood [NSW] vineyard
This 2019 Sapling Yard 'Entrechat' is made with the traditional trio of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, vinified along the French Methode traditionelle and reflective of the ZD style
Hints of blush and persistent petillance set the taste buds tingling in anticipation.
Autolytic, toasty aromas and flavours reflect the 2 year lees contact
The mid-palate astringent allows the freshness and complexity of the wine to linger.
Its crisp acid grab cuts through a range of dishes and was a good foil to our platter of smoked salmon, charcuterie and crudites
It is a refreshing sparkling of quality and promise well worth seeking out and enjoying over the coming warmer months
