- AUS - Multi-regional
Bright pale pink; like the Brut, made using the traditional method, and a blend of chardonnay and pinot noir. Rating 92 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2013
Up to 80 individual base wines contributed to this smashing, complex rosé; 18 months on yeast lees contributes the brioche scent, stone fruits and general mouth-feel. Jeni Port, The Age `Epicure` (FEB/2012)
Winery Tasting Notes
The colour is reminiscent of pink peach skin with vibrant rose gold to light bronze hues.
Fresh ripe black cherries, citrus and stone fruit notes dominate the nose, complemented by freshly baked pie crust aromas from 18 months of yeast age.
The entry is gentle and creamy with mouth-filling stone fruits, strawberry and vanilla icecream characters. Soft citrus tones keep the palate fresh and balanced. The inclusion of a little red pinot noir base wine in the assemblage provides an extra layer of complexity, additional richness and persistence to the dry, crisp finish.
