2020 Lucy Margaux Le Petit Blanc Pétillant
The Lucy M wines are made on the Lucy Margaux Farm in Basket Range, South Australia by Anton Von Klopper. The wines change every year but one thing is constant: No additions, just grapes.
The Semillon is destemmed and left to rest for 4 days allowing juice to soak up the flavour, colour and a little tannin from the skins. It is then pressed and fermented for two weeks until there is the perfect amount of sugar to finish in bottle with a good level of spritz. Then it is aged on lees in bottle for four months and then disgorged.
The wine is golden with a solid persistent bead that elevates to white peach and almond blossoms. It tastes like wheat swaying in the wind on a warm summer's day while biting into a crisp, cold granny-smith apple, ooh la la!
