The 2014 Mandala Yarra Valley Blanc de Blancs Story
Over in France's Champagne region, the varietal "Blanc de Blancs" indicates a Champagne created entirely from Chardonnay fruit. With the name literally meaning: "White from White", it makes sense then that we use our famous Yarra Valley Chardonnay grapes to produce a world-class Blanc de Blancs!
Our 2014 Mandala Blanc de Blancs is made of 100% Chardonnay, and 100% methode traditionelle, which is the same process Champagne producers follow to achieve the signature bubble and finish, and 18 months en tirage.
