d'Arenberg Pollyanna Polly Sparkling NV


The "Pollyanna Polly", aka "Polly", is d'Arenberg's sparkling non-vintage wine with fruit sourced from the Adelaide Hills.  It is made in using the traditional Champagne varieties of chardonnay (52%), pinot noir (40%) and pinot meunier (8%).  The grapes are early picked (the abv is only 11%) and the wine is fermented in bottle and left on its lees for approximately 4 years.  In the glass, it has aromatics of lemon, yellow grapefruit, lees and yoghurt.  The palate is dry and balanced, with crisp acidity and a fine bead.
