Jane Brook Sparkling White NV Chenin Blanc

I do love a good sparkling Chenin Blanc and the Swan Valley do them so well! The Jane Brook Chenin sparkling is made by ‘methode champenoise’ (the same way French Champagne is made with the secondary fermentation taking place in the bottle).Interestingly this bubbles is made in a French Loire Valley style and spends 1 year on yeast lees to impart the perfect flavour and complexity to the wine. This bubbles sells for $28 at the cellar door and for me, I think this bubbles would be perfect for sipping on whilst doing your Christmas baking and listening to carols!

Tasting Note

It’s a shining gold colour on the eye, just like that beautiful star at the top of the Christmas tree. Lovely aromas of baked fruit, bread cooking in the oven and a touch of elderflower. The palate is simply outstanding, it is so full of flavour yet it’s not in your face, it’s sophisticated and super refreshing with flavours of melon and nectarine. Give me a glass of this while decorating the Christmas tree and I’ll be one happy lady!

Christmas Special

Jane Brook have a fantastic array of gifts and gift experiences on offer at the cellar door if you’re looking for a little something different to do over the festive season or as a gift. As well as gift vouchers you can opt for one-of-a-kind food and wine experiences at the cellar door such as a Sparkling High Tea or Sparkling Gold High Tea (sparkling wine with gold flakes in!) or why not take someone along for a meal at the cellar door and tasting! You can find out more and book online here.

About Jane Brook Estate in the Swan Valley

I like the tagline for Jane Brook, “The family run winery that puts excellence in a bottle”. As they put it, ‘wine has been running through our veins for over 40 years now’, this beautiful Swan Valley estate is owned and run by the Atkinson family.
Jane Brook Cellar Door in the Swan ValleyThe last time I was out at the winery, I noticed a huge solar panel in the vines and after a bit of investigation I found out the Jane Brook put a lot of emphasis on sustainable practices. It is fabulous to see that wineries are putting emphasis on taking care of the land that literally grow their wonderful products. There are various energy-saving, recycling and sustainability practices put into place in the vineyard and winery.
