Vintage Conditions

Winemakers Comments Produced from 60 year old vines grown on our Sunday Creek vineyard, the Pinot Noir crop is always small.  As a result we get beautiful fruit of good colour and excellent depth.  The base wines were fermented in both open and closed vats, with 10% stalks included back into the crush.  Hand plunging and gentle pump overs occurred two to three times daily, before pressing at the end of fermentation.

The 2018 Pinot Noir base wine was matured in older French oak barriques for 18 months, while the 2019 Pinot Noir base wine was matured in 2 and 3 year old French oak barriques for six months.  Both parcels were then blended together in tank, fined and clarified for tirage (where a secondary fermentation is started in tank, and the fermenting wine is bottled, creating the “pfizz”). 

Our Sparkling Pinot Noir spends a minimum of 24 months on yeast lees.  The wine is disgorged on demand (where the yeast lees are removed from the bottle, and a dosage liqueur is added to top the wine), to ensure freshness.  We have chosen to use our 2018 Pfeiffer Christopher’s VP as the dosage liqueur, adding further complexity to the wine.

Our Pfeiffer Red Pfizz exhibits a lovely nose of mixed berries and spice.The medium-bodied palate is flavourful, with cherry and red berry fruit, balanced by soft tannins.  We have chosen a crown seal as the closure for this wine to optimise flavour and freshness.
