    "Six vintage dated, two non vintage; all made using the traditional method of fermentation in the bottle in which it was fermented, and received its dosage. Labour intensive and expensive."

    The following wines were chosen from a total of 59 submitted.

    Four top sparklings

    2017 Seppelt Salinger Methode Traditionnelle Henty Vintage Cuvee

    A 52/42/6 per cent blend of pinot noir, chardonnay and pinot meunier that trumpets the ultra cool region, spending four years on tirage. The vintage was wet and cool, but disease-free. The wine has developed yet more intensity to its Meyer lemon fruit base, the length of the palate exceptional. Bargain of the year.
