  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • WHO MADE IT?
  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • Made from Sangiovese & Syrah rosé, it's a "Pet-Nat" (that's hipster for Petillant Naturel or Natural Sparkling), which means that at the last possible minute the fermenting wine was transferred to bottle, capturing the fizz produced by the yeast.

    No Sulphur, no chemical additions, just sunlight, grapes and happy yeast. 

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Lark Hill was established in 1978 by Sue & Dave Carpenter, high on the escarpment above Bungendore, 30km North East of Canberra. Lark Hill is a cold vineyard and at 860m elevation, is one of the highest plantings in the Canberra District. The soils are shallow depleted shale over clay, and vineyard receives ~600mm of rainfall annually. Certified biodynamic since 2003 In the winery, Lark Hill seek to translate the balance and vibrance of the fruit to the wines - using minimal intervention winemaking techniques to ensure that the wine reflects the geology, climate and location of the vineyard, in a true preservation of Terroir. Under Biodynamic certification, Lark Hill uses a maximum of 20ppm (parts-per-million) of free Sulphur (preservative) at bottling - a low dose that may reduce Sulphur reactions, and still ensures wines that will cellar impeccably for years to come. Famous as a pioneer of Gruner Veltliner in Australia, with Pinot Noir, with fine Chardonnay, Riesling and even a Canberra Sangiovese in the range.
