  • A Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier blend
  • Fruit sourced from Tasmania's Piper's Brook and Coal River Valley
  • The 2019 vintage was the first release of this wine

‘Interestingly Samantha named this wine as a tip of the hat to Rada Penfold Collins, who in the 70’s represented Penfolds PR department and was perhaps Australia’s first female wine columnist, writing for the Sydney Morning Herald. The Pinot Meunier for this wine is sourced from Pipers Brook region in the North East of Tasmania. That region of course is synonymous with sparkling wine production hence how she managed to find some. The blend is 66% Pinot Meunier 34% Pinot Noir. Samantha destems the Meunier for fermentation whilst leaving 25% of the Pinot Noir as whole bunches. Both varieties are co-fermented, pressed off to tank then racked off gross lees into seasoned French puncheons. Elevage for 5 months.’ – Distributor’s note
