"A blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from several estate vineyards. An appealing sparkler with an ethereal texture and brioche, baked bread and citrus flavours. A dry, delicate wine - a delicious aperitif" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Jan 2020

When the bottle is opened properly, the wine “pops” into life and you are immediately met with a toasty yeast autolysis character – a must for great Méthode Traditionnelle wine! The aromas are lemons and yeast, but slightly restrained. The palate builds from the lemon citrus entry through a biscuit dough mid palate to a full, rich but crisp and clean finish.

A blend of fruit from three different Marlborough vineyards, each vineyard is prepared meticulously to ensure flavoursome crops that will express themselves individually in a blended wine.

Allan Scott Cecilia Brut is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. The Chardonnay grapes are picked, lightly pressed and fermented to absolute dryness. Following primary fermentation, wild malolactic fermentation is encouraged. The Pinot Noir grapes must be handled very carefully as too much maceration can result in a salmon pink or rose coloured wine. After a very quick transition from vineyard to winery, the grapes are very lightly pressed following the same process as the chardonnay grapes. After 10 months the wines are carefully blended, bottled with sugar and yeast to initiate a secondary fermentation in the bottle. After aging for a minimum of 18 months in cool dark conditions the wine is then disgorged removing the yeast sediment from the bottle after which the wine is corked and dressed for sale.

Food Pairing: Cecilia Brut can be enjoyed anytime, whether for a celebration or to share with friends as an aperitif before a meal. Try matching with a creamy chowder or a beautiful brie.
