The House of Seppelt proudly presents Cuvee Fleur de Lys
, a refined vintage sparkling based around a philosophy of varietal purity, profound intensity and long lived cellarability. An elegant effervescent wine which has claimed multi medals and wineshow awards throughout the vintages. A selection of the finest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay Cuvees
are assembled, to achieve a rich and round, delightfully soft palate of exquisite balance, great length of flavour and tastefully crisp dry finish.
Fleur de Lys draws upon parcels of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, harvested from the House of Seppelt's highly specialized sparkling wine vineyards, fortuitously positioned within the most superlative mesoclimes. Fruit is vinified to traditional methods before laying to rest for an extended maturation on yeast lees, to construct a wine of great character and complexity. Treated to the full Methode Traditionelle, a secondary bottle ferment and two years maturation on sedimentery yeast lees, Fleur de Lys is disgorged and treated to a relatively dry measure of liqueur doseage before resealing. A Sparkler of splendid balance and immense length, derived from the slowly ripened cool climate fruit.
Vibrant, pale gold hue, the mousse is persistent and fine. Rich complexity of baked bread and nutty characters, creamy fruit and complex brioche/ flan elements highlight the extended maturation on lees. The generously textured palate is fine and soft, exhibiting citrus and strawberry characters over layers of flavour, finishing with a pleasant dryness and crisp acidity.
