One of Australia's principal Pinot Chardonnay Meuniere Cuvée, from fruit grown to superior vineyards at Pipers Brook, an area acknowledged as the premiere source of sparkling wine in Australia. Ever since debut, Clover Hill has impressed both the local and international industry press with its uncompromising quality and distinguished styling. Rich autolysis and wonderful biscuit characters, structure and finesse, creamy layers of Chardonnay fruit are integrated beautifully with the sherbet, bread and cherry Pinot characters.
Half Chardonnay with a third of Pinot Noir and the balance Pinot Meunier. A true Methode Traditionalle from the holy trinity of classic sparkling varietals, Clover Hill is a composition of selected reserve wines, some of which have been aged in French oak foudres and barriques, infusing complexity while ensuring continuity of style. Taltarni boast of the fact that their average yields are less than half those in Champagne, achieving a more concentrated juice. Clover Hill is topped up and treated to a minimum of three years on lees with a subsequent ageing under cork for a minimum of several months. The liqueur doseage is prepared from a selection of base wines, set aside for ageing in oak foudres.
TASTING NOTES
Attractive pale straw hue, a persistent, fine bead and gentle, foaming mousse. Bouquet displays complex layers of lemon, white peach and honey, toasty yeast characters derived from time on lees and inclusion of aged reserves. The palate displays an elegant integration of tropical fruit flavours and freshly baked characters, an underlying creamy complexity with exceptional length.

About the Clover Hill Winery
Clover Hill is one of Australia’s principal Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier Cuvées
Founded by the Goelet family on the site of a former dairy farm in northeast Tasmania, Clover Hill was established in 1986 after an exhaustive search for an ideal site for the sole purpose of producing world class sparkling wine to rival that of the Champagne region. The site, with its rich soil, natural sloping amphitheatre and maritime climate, was deemed to be the perfect location to produce superb Méthode Traditionnelle sparkling wine, rivaling the great Champagne Houses of France. The 66 hectare Pipers River property near Lebrina overlooks Bass Straight and capitalises on its natural assets. The rich land, which was a mosaic of undulating hills and golden clover, is now also lined with picturesque vines dotted with a smattering of golden clover. Clover Hill»
