"A wine for anytime. Drink it at breakfast!”- Erinn Klein, Winemaker
NGERINGA Éclat NV is a fresh, aperitif-style sparkling wine with flavours of grapefruit and shortbread biscuits and the crunch of green apples and fleshy peaches. Refreshingly dry (zero dosage), texturally creamy and mouth filling with a racy, acidic zip through its core. Drink before a feast, on a picnic rug or when toasting brilliance.
NGERINGA Éclat NV is a blend of our Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, both of which are planted on our steep easterly facing Summit Vineyard at 380m above sea level on a delicate soil of sandy loam. In the distance, this vineyard overlooks Lake Alexandrina and the mouth of the River Murray, lending strong, cooling breezes on summer evenings and preserving our fruit acids and flavours through the critical weeks of ripening.
A non-vintage sparkling made using the ‘méthode traditionelle’ with a 50/50 blend of the 2012 and 2013 vintages. The base wine blend is made up of 40% Chardonnay and 60% Pinot Noir and was fermented using endemic yeast and aged on lees for one and two years respectively in 6 to 10 year-old French barrels. After final blending and tirage each bottle spent a further year on secondary fermentation yeast and was disgorged mid-January 2015. Zero dosage to maintain a dry, crisp fresh palette.
