Wicks Estate 'Pamela' Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2015

Special Price $25.00 Regular Price $30.00
Truly a modern classic, this Adelaide Hill Sparkling is all about high quality fruit spending 4 years on lees to develop texture and complexity. There’s a full, rich mouthfeel and texture and delicate toasty notes of warm honey, cumquat, truffle and tarragon underpinned by hints of pear and ginger. The length an intensity are fantastic.

The Wicks family association with the picturesque Woodside region of the Adelaide Hills starts long before the winery was established. The wine part of the story began with the purchase of a 54 hectare property by Tim and Simon Wick in 1999, set along the Inverbrackie Creek. The property was planted to Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Cabernet. In 2004 they completed their state of the art processing facility to back up the traditional methods used in the creating of their generous hand crafted wines.

Considerably cooler than the surrounding plains, the hills are washed in rain during winter months, and the peaks wrapped in fog. It is considered a high rainfall region compared to other Australian regions, but outside of winter the climate is warm and dry. Night time temperatures are the feature - notably cooler than the day when the sun sets. Worth noting is how the average rainfall increases the higher you go, with Mount Lofty picking up 1400mm on the old splash-o-meter compared to 850mm just 10K down the road in Charleston. This range of moisture and altitudes results in a variety of soils, but in general are sand and clay loam over clay subsoils. ... Read Full Article

Considerably cooler than the surrounding plains, the hills are washed in rain during winter months, and the peaks wrapped in fog.

Night time temperatures are the feature - notably cooler than the day when the sun sets.

This range of moisture and altitudes results in a variety of soils, but in general are sand and clay loam over clay subsoils. A bit of shale and ironstone can be found, and the soil is acidic on average and rarely acidic.

The combination of climate and soil lends to superb cool-weather whites like Riesling (if you watch for mould), Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and crisp Chardonnays. Merlot, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon can also be found, with the grapes
