Huge news for Bellarine vineyard, Leura Park Estate with the announcement  on 23 October that the 5 star winery’s latest release Vintage Grand Sparkling Blanc de Blanc has won the Trophy for the second year in a row in Class 1, ‘Best Sparkling White, natural ferment’ at the prestigious Australian Sparkling Wine Show.

The 2013 vintage sparkling is the hero of today, having just replaced the sold out 2012 vintage offering which won the same trophy last year.

The Sparkling Blanc de Blanc (literally ‘white of white’) is crafted from 100 per cent chardonnay grapes, grown on the Leura Park Estate vineyard.

Director of Leura Park Estate, Lyndsay Sharp said everyone was thrilled with the trophy and that it showed the sparkling had proven pedigree and that the winery was on the right track in terms of sparkling style and finesse.

“We all love our sparkling here and for one of our signatures to be classified as the best in Australia across two vintages and two successive awards is a tremendous honour for our little winery,” Mrs Sharp said.

“The award is a credit to winemaker Darren Burke, Vineyard Manager Andrew Mahoney and the entire vineyard and winery team.”

The Leura Park Estate Vintage Grand Sparkling Blanc de Blanc is finely beaded with a creamy texture alongside delicate hints of citrus sorbet and yeast. Barrel fermented and aged, it has an elegant, refreshing finish.

The Sparkling Blanc de Blanc can be tasted on weekends at Leura Park Estate’s cellar door, 1400 Portarlington Road. This fine sparkling is also available for purchase at select retail outlets and restaurants as well as online via www.leuraparkestate.com.au. It retails at cellar door and online for $30 per bottle or $260 per dozen which includes free delivery.
