Coldstream Hills has been making sparkling wine, albeit in small quantities, since 1995. The first release of the wine was a Blanc de Noir, but in more recent times, it has been a more traditional blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
The south facing slopes of the Deer Farm Vineyard at Gladysdale provide an ideal source for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. The fruit was hand picked and gently pressed prior to fermentation. Following secondary fermentation, the wine spent three years on yeast lees prior to disgorging and release.
