The French term ‘sur lie’ means that wine is left to rest on its sediment, or residual yeast particles, for an extended period. The method of allowing wine to be in contact with the spent yeast is primarily one used in the French province of Champagne. It produces a richer and deeper tasting wine. Our Sur Lie is aged in French oak barrels and is the result of an amalgamation of 2-3 different vintages. The amalgamation of mature and young vintages lends this wine a further degree of complexity: the younger vintages provide fresh and subtle fruity notes, while the mature ones provide more complex tones. When the bottle is open, the wine can easily last for 4-6 weeks, if it is kept in a cool place.
