Wine and Winery Information

Azahara Sparkling NV

Grape Varieties
: Chardonnay (75%) & Pinot Noir (25%)

Region: The fruit for this sparkling wine was harvested from our vineyards which rest alongside lovely orange vineyards at Deakin Estate, North West Victoria.

Vinification: Classic varieties, early picking, gentle processing of exclusively free run juice, fine attention to juice composition and clarity, cold and slow fermentation with classic sparkling wine yeast and then extended yeast lees aging – these are the hallmarks of our base wine production for AZAHARA. Each year, the best of these parcels are ‘folded’ into a modified solera system, which cross-blends at least six past vintages and the yeast autolysis products that have accumulated over this period. In this way, fresh, new wine flavours are blended with progressively older and more complex flavours. A final, secondary fermentation is then initiated to naturally charge the wine with its fizz and to bring everything into harmony.

Winemaker’s Comments: Phil Spillman

Colour: Pale straw with a deliciously fine bead.

Nose: Elegant and complex with lemon, light malt and fresh bread aromas.

Palate: Bright acidity balanced by a creamy, malty body with fresh lemon, Camembert and bready flavours and a good lengthy finish. A fine persistent mousse.

Cellaring Potential: There is no need to bottle age this wine as complexities have already evolved. Serve chilled.

Ideal ways to enjoy AZAHARA: All lovely occasions require lovely bubbles… anywhere, anytime. You’d do well to serve it with crusty Italian bread and good olive oil or a nice soft cheese like Havarti or Camembert. And it would be divine with a baked cheesecake or crème caramel.
