Nova Vita Firebird Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir
The grapes were harvested early in the cool of the morning and quickly transported to the winery. From there the grapes were gently whole bunch pressed to preserve the freshness of the fruit. The result is an elegant and refreshing sparkling wine displaying green apple, pear, and strawberry aromas with a hint of bakers dough. The palate has a soft and creamy textured feel with sweet brioche flavours, balanced acidity and a creamy mousse bead. Time on yeast lees, both in barrel and tank, added texture and complexity to the sparkling wine.
Winemaking responsibilities rest with Mark Kozned and all our wines are made at our Revenir winery located in the Adelaide Hills. The 2014 wine is our 4th vintage made at the 2000 tonne Revenir winery which we acquired from Australian Vintage at the beginning of 2011 in a joint venture with Peter Leske.
The "Firebird" is a Russian mythical bird and was chosen as a testament to the Russian ancestry of the Kozned family name – catch its feather or hear it sing and you will be blessed with luck and happiness.
