Lévrier Sparkling Meslier Brut Rose
Meslier is one of the rarest sparkling grape varieties, grown traditionally in France, with only a few acres known to exist worldwide. Our grapes are grown in the Adelaide Hills, making this one of the rarest sparkling wines in the world
Winemaker Jo Irvine’s father planted the first Meslier vineyard in Eden Valley in 1988 and in 1992 made the first single variety Australian Meslier Sparkling.
In 1997 source material from our Eden Valley vineyard was supplied and planted at Mount Torrens in the Adelaide Hills and is now supplied to me by the Edwards family.
Superbly fine beading with unique fresh green apple, citrus flavours and racey acidity make my Meslier perfect with fresh mussels and oysters with fresh limes and a hint of fresh chilli and coriander.
Personally selected single vineyard fruit from their dedicated Adelaide Hills grower, matured for 24 months on yeast lees prior to bottling. Matured for 12 months in bottle prior to release.
