Pinot Noir and Meunier give the Altair power and riper red fruit aromas, and citrus lift and finesse from the Chardonnay. The addition of multi-vintage reserve wines adds depth and complexity. The fine, creamy mousse complements the peach and citrus characters.
Beltana is produced using 100% Chardonnay grapes selected from the cool, high altitude slopes in the Adelaide Hills. The finest parcels with the greatest ageing potential are selected to make the Beltana, which is one of our ‘Small Batch Series’ wines.
Our late disgorged Altair has been ageing on lees in our museum cellar, developing toasty complexity for this special release. Low dosage lets the citrus notes shine through to give a fresh and lingering finish.
