Harris Organic Sparkling 'Madeleine Claire' Chardonnay - TC Wine Blog

Harris Organic Sparkling ‘Madeleine Claire’ Chardonnay

There are not many organic wines in the Swan Valley and I have a feeling Harris Organic may be the only one doing organic sparkling. This sparkling wine is made of 100% organically grown Chardonnay grapes which are handpicked. Natural yeast is used for fermentation and the wine is stored for 3 months in an underground cellar prior to bottling. Once bottled, the wine undergoes a secondary fermentation in the bottle over a minimum of a 36 month period. The bottles are hand riddled and hand disgorged before being finished with a crown cap closure. Continue reading

Ugly Duckling 2014 Sparkling Chardonnay

Sittella NV Sparkling Chenin Blanc - TC Wine Blog Sittella NV Sparkling Chenin Blanc

This is my go-to sparkling wine and it pretty much has been since I touched down in Perth. For $24 it is an absolute steal and it is such a crowd-pleaser! I am always left with the task of choosing the wine for everyone and when everyone’s tastes are so diverse or I’m unsure what people drink I think 9 times out of 10 everyone will love this wine. It’s a safe option! And for that 1 who maybe doesn’t like it, well bad luck for them.. I’ll drink their glass quite happily! Continue reading
