Fete Cuvee Sparkling, Mission Estate
A hand harvested cuvée crafted to celebrate Mission Estate's 160 years of winemaking and pioneering heritage. Named Fête (to honour the winery's French roots) this soft and light sparkling wine is made in the Champagne method giving it delicious creamy characteristics, delicate pear aromas and a fine, persistant mousse.
Unlike Champagne this wine is made from predominantly Pinot Gris grapes with a little Chardonnay fruit thrown in. These grapes were hand harvested from the Mission Estate Taradale vineyard, and pressed very gently in the traditional manner. In the mouth the wine sings across the palate showing a persistent and fresh moreish finish.Learn More
