Benjamin Bridge Brut

Light straw in colour with glints of bright gold. Complex hints of acacia honey, peach and tart cherries combine for a very engaging nose. On the palate, a vibrant effervescence enhances an already lively wine with ample freshness, driven by citrus pink grapefruit and lime flavours. The bitter citrus zest flavours are powerful and superbly concentrated. The wine displays the combination of richness and tart tones that is typical of our cool climate and Benjamin Bridge’s terroir-driven wines.

A fine sparkling wine is perfect when enjoyed on its own but but to enjoy an inspired food pairing is to discover its true versatility. The ’09 Brut would be a beautiful match for flavourful, vibrant foods, such as seafood, poultry or vegetarian-dishes with a spicy flare.

Using 100% hand picked fruit, wild ferments and gravity-flow winemaking techniques, their wines, made with minimal filtration and fining, reflect the climate, soil and topography of the Yarra Valley. These strikingly branded wines have established a strong reputation in restaurants and fine wine stores around the world. Their Moscato has time and again been voted Australia’s best Moscato, and has achieved an almost cult like status in Australia. It is so popular that at the winery / restaurant that is home to Innocent Bystander, they have it on tap to keep up with the demand!

This wine is a hit with just about everyone! It is pink, fizzy, sweet, crisp and fun It is juicy, gently sweet and expansive, offering intense strawberry, raspberry and cherry compote flavors that are reined in by a hint of tangy acidity. Finishes smooth and broad, with resonating red fruit and floral notes and good cling. This delicious, ridiculously easy-to-drink wine clocks in at 5.5% alcohol, by the way. This wine is great on it’s own, as an aperitif, and is decidedly good with spicy food or aged cheese!
