WEYBORNE ESTATE FAMILY RESERVE
The Family Reserve is the bottled essence of the annual production from the five vineyard blocks at Weyborne’s single vineyard estate. The Family Reserve captures the unique terroir and the interplay of the vines, the soil and climate. The Family Reserve is a Chardonnay led cuvée, so Blanc des Blancs in style, with the intensity and elegance this noble grape variety brings with the two Pinot grape varieties, Noir and Meunier provide a supporting act of vibrancy, power and body. The Family Reserve is a vintage reflection of the Weyborne Estate and in 2018 was dealt a near perfect hand for growing World class sparkling wine, so with 4 years of maturation the 2018 was bottled in 2022 with zero dosage to allow the essence of Weyborne to be revealed in its true and pure state.
The aromas are fresh. showing a degree of toasty complexity, while to taste, there’s an attractively textured mousse suffused with intense fruit ﬂavours and nutty autolytic complexity, framed by a ﬁne streak of lively fresh acidity for excellent overall balance, ﬁnishing with an incisive bite for elegance and freshness.
