Pelorus is produced from a blend of 70% chardonnay and 30% pinot noir grapes grown in Marlborough's Wairau Valley. A blend from selected vintages, Pelorus exhibits all the hallmarks of chardonnay based sparkling wine; fresh and apple crisp, under pinned by yeast complexity.
The pale straw colour and aromas of ripe citrus fruits indicate the chardonnay origins of Pelorus NV. A bouquet of apple and lemon complements fresh bready notes derived from two years bottle ageing on lees. The deliciously crisp palate displays toasty, creamy complexity, enhanced by a lingering nutty finish.
