As a non-vintage sparkling wine, the final Pelorus blend comprises wines from several seasons. Several different clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are used in the vinification of Pelorus NV. All grapes are pressed without crushing and the juice is given a short period of settling which is followed by racking and inoculation with a pure strain of Montrachet yeast.
The pale straw colour and aromas of ripe citrus fruits indicate the chardonnay origins of Pelorus nv. A bouquet of apple and lemon complements fresh bready notes derived from two years bottle ageing on lees. The deliciously crisp palate displays toasty, creamy complexity, enhanced by a lingering nutty finish.
