2016 Mordrelle Blanc de Blancs
Mordrelle cleaned up at the Adelaide Hills Wine Show winning two trophies: ‘Best Sparkling Wine’ and ‘Best Single Vineyard Wine’, proving what we already knew, that Mordrelle is making some profound wines and luckily for us, at affordable prices. Made from 100% Chardonnay and aged on lees for about 5 years to develop its savoury, nutty nuances; paired with sweet lemon and perfectly ripe granny smith apples, making this a very charming drink. All the labels on the Mordrelle bottles are painted by his late father who was a passionate artist. The painting on this bottle brought so much joy to winemaker Martin Moran, so he decided to take the painting home with him and use it on his bottles to commemorate his fathers work.
