Really full, textural and rich sparkling with honey, toast, nutty and very strong saline characters rolling around. Vinous in a way, but full-bodied, a touch of sherbetty lift and light white vinegar tang, a funky kind of fizz with lots of personality, vivacious feel and gentle bubbles. Lots of complexity and interest here. Read more

Expert Review
Mike Bennie - Gourmet Traveller

A very vinous sparkling, composed, rich, silky in texture, the Inception sees around 25% solera material blended with the remaining wine, chardonnay from 2017. The combined wines are matured in barrel. It’s a bold sparkling with honey on toast, cashew and sea-spray characters. Fuller in flavour, it shows a zingy tang of acidity and vigorous, big bubbles. There’s so much going on here."

Tasting Notes

The NADESON COLLIS ‘Inception’ is a blend of Chardonnay & Pinot Noir, 15 months on lees with 1.5g/l dosage. Using the finest Chardonnay & Pinot Noir from Drumborg, Henty the grapes are whole-bunch pressed and fermented in a mixture of barriques and foudre. 75% from the 2017 vintage with 25% reserve wine coming from a perpetual blend that has been developing since 2006. The wine displays green fruit, citrus and oyster shell on the nose and crisp white peach and a chalky finish on the palate.
