Coombe Farm is one of the oldest and largest family estates in the Yarra Valley. The Tribute Series of wines have been created to honour the incredible legacy of our forefathers. Coombe Farm was once the home of Dame Nellie Melba and is still owned and operated by her descendants. This stylish celebratory wine is named in her honour.
This sparkling wine is pure elegance and sophistication, showing delicate scents of lemon zest, lemon pith and green apple, with finely textured acidity and a seamless bead. On the palate this wine shows generous mouthfill laced with creamy stone fruit and brioche notes.
The wine was produced by Methode Traditionelle (bottle fermentation) from estate grown clone 76 Chardonnay. It was aged on lees in the bottle for a minimum of 30 months. Dosage was kept at just 6.5g/L to showcase the wines distinctively fresh, dry style.
Varietal Composition: 100% Chardonnay (clone 76)
