Adding Lus­tre to awards win

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Front Page -

There is no ques­tion which wine will be used to cel­e­brate Pem­ber­ley Wines’ Lus­tre win­ning an award at the Wine Show of West­ern Aus­tralia this month.

The chardon­nay/pinot noir blend won Best Sparkling Wine at the show in Mount Barker held dur­ing the first week of Oc­to­ber.

Lus­tre has been part of Pem­ber­ley’s range since 2008 and the win­ning bot­tle was part of the 2015 vin­tage.

“We’re re­ally ex­cited, proud and pleased to see the wine recog­nised for its fruit and for its re­gion,” Pem­ber­ley co-owner Mon­ica Radomil­jac said.

As a va­ri­ety, the Lus­tre wine is fer­mented in the bot­tle.

It is laid on its side for four years and then it it goes through the dis­gorge­ment process for about six to eight weeks be­fore it goes on sale to re­move the frozen sed­i­ment at the neck of the bot­tle, which is kept in­verted.

Mrs Radomil­jac said the Pem­ber­ton coun­try­side was well suited to mak­ing sparkling wines.

“In 200 years, we hope to have the best sparkling wine in the coun­try,” she said.
