The biggest Fizz in the Pacific..boom boom

What's there to say about our notorious Chirac that hasn't been said already? A blend of 40%Pinot Noir and 60%Chardonnay made into a lively fizz in the normal methode Champenoise fashion, it is an Australian sparkling white with the finesse and clarity of expression we strive for in all our Bloodwood wines Now, this clarity and finesse just doesn't happen as a matter of course, of course. Only in exceptional vintages do we attempt the ludicrous economic folly of making a fizz with such an explosive impact, but when we occasionally do, you'll be the first to hear about it. And with four years on lees between vintage ignition and eventual dosage detonation we'll all be in need of a good drink. Rhonda recommends serving with goats cheese yellowcake buiscuits as above! Enjoy.
