Sitella Avant-Garde Blanc de blancs – Pemberton

This wine was made from several vintages, a concept and a dream that started back in 2011. The ultimate
compliment to the Sittella series of sparkling wines has resulted in an ultra complex and multi-layered sparkling
wine, crafted over many years with immense detail and foresight.
Entirely fermented in oak from a unique single vineyard site from Western Australia’s Pemberton region, known
for its fantastic Pinot noir and Chardonnay. This wine has been collected over time and been blended with several
years and left in seasoned French oak puncheon (500l) barrels for between 1-3 years on lees.

Owners Simon and Maaike Berns have the support of an enthusiastic team of professionals to create and produce high quality traditional wine styles, from both their own and contract vineyards throughout the Swan Valley and Margaret River Region and the Deep South. The winery is named after a small Australian bird, the Sittella, which abounds in the nearby tree-lined Swan River.

While sparkling wine is the ultimate party-starter and celebratory style, you don’t need a special occasion to enjoy it. Sparkling wine is an all-round crowd-pleaser and fits comfortably in a range of situations and events.

 

TASTING NOTES

Fresh brioche, yeast and roasted nut characters compliment the honey, citrus rind and fresh apple
characters on this wines illustriously complex nose. Textured, layered and full of depth on the palate, with a
fantastic linear Blanc de blancs acidity.
