‘Fleur de Vie’ Dundee Hills Demi-Sec M.V. 1 Sparkling Wine
Our inaugural ‘Fleur de Vie’ Demi-Sec is a celebration of the magical interplay between food and wine. Literally meaning “half-sweet”, demi-sec wines are prized throughout the world for their ability to pair with desserts, spicier foods or to stand alone as an aperitif. With its subtle and beautifully integrated hint of sweetness, this pleasurable wine is refreshingly bright and complex. Sourced from our Dundee Hills Estate vineyard blocks specifically designated to sparkling wine production, half of this multi-vintage blend comes from our revered Winery Hill vineyard.
Truly a joy to imbibe, our ‘Fleur de Vie’ Demi-Sec is effusively aromatic, with dreamy notes of peach cobbler and apricot custard on the nose. Hints of night-blooming jasmine and river rock speak to the wine’s elegance, restraint, and skillful winemaking. On the palate, mouth-scrubbing bubbles and brisk acidity create marvelous tension and provide a counterbalance to its seductive and honeyed mouthfeel.
