Clover Hill was founded in 1986, on the site of a former dairy farm in north-east Tasmania with the sole purpose of producing premium, world-renowned sparkling wines.

The Clover Hill site was selected for it’s ancient volcanic soils and sheltered amphitheatre. These fertile, undulating hills are now lined with rows of Clover Hill’s Pinot vines. The 66-hectare property in Lebrina, Pipers River, overlooks Bass Straight and provides an optimal vineyard environment. A cool maritime climate, with mild autumn temperatures ranging between a high of 25 and a low of 10 degrees. This results in a long ripening season, allowing superior flavour development, low sugar levels and high natural acidity: the perfect combination for super premium wine in traditional sparkling varieties - Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.

The process of crafting elegant sparkling wines in the traditional, French manner, known as méthod traditionelle (traditional method), is a highly specialised field. This places Clover Hill in an elite group as one of the few sparkling houses in Australia to exclusively utilise this method.

Under their multi-vintage philosophy, Clover Hill focus on managing a reserve wine program to consistently produce wines of elegance and excellence. This approach allows them to create a highly desirable Clover Hill house style. They use four reserve wines – on yeast lees in tank and bottle combined with reserves in oak – large format oak – Foudre and stainless steel. Holding the reserve on yeast lees enhances freshness and vibrancy with the benefit of reducing the use of preservatives. The oaked components enhance and contribute both viscosity and mouthfeel to the wines.

This Multi Vintage Exceptionnelle exhibits a light straw/green hue in the glass, with a fine persistent mousse. On the nose it delivers vibrant citrus and stone fruits which are complemented by layers of creamy complexity. The palate offers a crisp acidity and a concentration of rich and balanced lemon curd and lime which draw the wine through to a delicious and extended finish.
