Westend Eternity Sparking

eternity01

Eternity sparkling is made with gentle handling to preserve the delicate primary fruit and avoid extracting phenolics from the soft skins. Grapes are night harvested, fully destemmed and gently crushed with some whole berries, then immediately pressed in an air-bag press. The juice is cold settled and clear juice is fermented slowly at very cool temperatures 12-14C. The dry wine is aged on primary fermentation lees for 12 months before being stabilised. The wine is then sweetened and re-yeasted for the secondary fermentation in pressure tank the “charmat technique”, this fermentation with subsequent lees aging takes place over six to eight weeks, the wine is then filtered and bottled under full sparkling pressure to produce this naturally fermented sparkling wine.

 

TASTING NOTE

Eternity is a straw yellow colour with an elegant nose of lemon citrus, delicate herbal characters of thyme, lemon mint and fresh bread dough yeast. The palate is soft and lemony with nutty and creamy yeast characters and a gentle and persistent mousse. The finish is smooth and refreshing with a fine balance leading to a wine with an “eternal sparkle”.

 

FOOD ACCOMPANIMENTS

Eternity is a perfect match with fish especially salmon and tuna, as well as trout and shellfish. Asian style chicken and pork are also well matched including those with aromatic herbs such as mint, lemon grass, coriander and mild chilli.
