Vintage 2017: Mia Mia sparkles

Innovation has always been at the heart of Pamela and Norbert Baumgartner’s success. They change their Mia Valley Estate wines and styles every year to suit the way their grapes have performed. “There are no boundaries really — you just have to keep experimenting,” Norbert said. “We like to try alternative things with the grapes we’ve got.” Last year they decided to make the Heathcote wine ­region’s first sparkling Riesling — one of only a few such wines in the country. Using the methode tra­ditionnelle winemaking practice used for Champagne, the wine is hand-made from picking to pressing and bottling.
