Overview

Overview

Coldstream Hills has been making sparkling wine, albeit in small quantities, since 1995. The first release of the wine was a Blanc de Noir, but in more recent times, it has been a more traditional blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Fine, pure and complex, with bright, zingy acidity, lemons and brioche, this wine has great length and persistence – an excellent expression of Coldstream Hills sparkling.

Hand-picked and made in the Méthode Traditionelle, Coldstream Hills Sparkling has an impressive show record.

Huon Hooke

"Light to mid-yellow colour with a smoky, struck-flint bouquet that is understated and yet adds greatly to the complexity. White fruits and flowers are also a part of it. The acidity is elevated and very refreshing, the flavour refined and very intense, long and sustained but never losing its tightness or delicacy. Complexity from blending black and white grapes is evident. A superb sparkling wine and an extraordinary bargain."

Campbell Mattinson, HWC

“Juicy red apples and ripe stone fruit flavours come complexed with cinnamon and sweet brioche. Balance is exemplary as indeed is the maintenance of flavour all the way through the palate.”

4.5 stars, Wine State

“A tight well focused style with aromas reminiscent of an apple tart with a floral edge and has a rich and flavoursome palate with "salivating" acidity.”
