Established in 1986 on the site of a dairy farm in north-east Tasmania, Clover Hill’s rich soil, natural sloping amphitheatre and maritime cool climate provide ideal conditions for the production of world class sparkling wines that rival the great houses of Champagne. 

From time to time, the blessing of virtually perfect climatic conditions can produce an exceptional vintage. The first of these was in 1999, when abundant winter and spring rainfall was followed by a warm, mild, yet sunny, ripening season. The fruit from this vintage was so outstanding, a small number of chardonnay parcels from the Clover Hill Vineyard were reserved to create the Cuvée Exceptionnelle Blanc de Blancs.

The Exceptionelle Blanc de Blancs has a golden straw appearance with a fine, persistent bead and delicate mousse. The wine displays aromas of brioche and honey with a hint of toasted hazelnuts. The palate is creamy with a textural mid-palate and exhibits flavours of preserved citrus and lemon curd.

Drinking beautifully now, but also will reward greatly if left to develop over the next 10+ years.
