Like all other Bellavista wines, this is elegantly crafted. Made from more than 100 parcels of grapes, all picked and vinified separately then blended together in the perfect “Cuvée”.
It has a lively and persistent mousse with fine perlage. It is an attractive pale yellow in colour, with green reflections. Perfumes of white flowers and stone fruits, with subtle hints of vanilla, which follow through on to the palate. Fine, elegant yet rounded and beautifully balanced.
Made in the 'traditional method', the different parcels of wine are all vinified separately. 15% of the wines used in the blend are fermented and then matured for seven months in small oak barrels. These wines are then blended with the "reserve wines", which come from between six and nine earlier vintages. Once blended, the wine is bottled and the second fermentation takes place in bottle. It is then left to age on the lees for two and a half years before release. The contribution of the reserve wines ensures Bellavista's consistent, signature style in every bottle.
