Description

A collection of O:TU’s finest, available only in limited quantities, in selected vintages.
Every so often our Chief Winemaker sees something standout; an outstanding vintage, an exceptional block of vines, expressive minerality, exquisite intensity of fruit – and chooses to capture its finesse. Small parcels, hand selected blocks & always hand crafted.

Viticulture
Low yielding vineyard with very strong focus on achieving the right fruit at harvest time, late picking to guarantee optimal flavour components.

Winemaking
Carefully selected Chardonnay grapes and process, ageing for 6 months on the lees. Second fermentation, ripening on the lees for at least 12 months.

Aromas
Fragrant vanilla aromas and hints of brioche.

Palate
Vibrant, fresh and generous sparkling wine made in the traditional method, showcasing the quintessence of chardonnay fruit. Produced only in selected vintages from purely Chardonnay grapes, this generous Blanc de Blanc delivers a fresh, lively palate of crisp, ripe citrus fruit – well balanced with creamy, toasty biscuit notes from extended lees ageing.
