Loftia is famously crisp and zesty, the perfect aperitif style sparkling wine.

Premium Pinot Noir gives aromas of rose petal, red apple and spice which precede the creamy mousse and citrus finish that the Chardonnay delivers.

Different parcels of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes were all hand-picked and then fermented in stainless steel tanks. Select parcels only went through malolactic ferment this year before resting until late winter when they are allocated to their final blend. The aim when blending Loftia is to create a sparkling that will gain complexity with age, as well as show the perfect balance between the line and precision from the Chardonnay and the power from the Pinot. We tirage (bottle) the wine by hand and store the bottles at 14C for a long consistent second ferment. After a minimum of three years, small batches are riddled and hand disgorged to allow the remaining bottles to continue ageing on lees as long as possible. The dosage liquor is crafted using a blend of base wines that have been aged over the years.

Producers notes

Deviation Road produces exciting cool climate wines from mature vineyard resources in the Adelaide Hills. Owners Hamish and Kate Laurie continue a five generation winemaking tradition. Devoted to the high altitude sites of the Adelaide Hills and with Kate’s French oenology training, the wines they produce are both traditional and contemporary.

With a fiery passion to create premium bottle fermented and aged Australian sparkling wines together with textural, aromatic wines that can genuinely cellar, their signature style is restrained, elegant and balanced. All of their wines are hand-crafted using traditional wine making techniques and are vegan friendly. 

Deviation Road’s winery and cellar door are ideally located in the picturesque Adelaide Hills, near Stirling. The Deviation Road experience combines a spectacular garden setting surrounded by vineyard and heritage listed bush land together with a sophisticated wine and all day grazing food menu.

At Deviation Road, every sip reveals a little of the mystery; a taste of the terroir, a glimpse at the season, a hint of the science and a wink to the heritage that crafts its existence.
