Winemaking Notes

Small portions of the red grape varieties Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier were identified on our Estate vineyard as suiting rose production. These grapes were pressed soon after harvesting to minimise colour and phenolic extraction. The resulting deep pink juice was fermented to dryness in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The resulting wine was agitated on its yeast lees for 4 months to impart some creamy characters and stabilise the wine. A small amount of fresh Chardonnay grape juice was then added back to create a demi sec style. These techniques have created an ideal luncheon wine that should be served chilled.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Blue Pyrenees - then called Chateau Remy - was established in Western Victoria in 1963 by Remy Martin. Remy Martin was committed to discovering the superb sparkling wine potential of the worlds cool climate wine regions and in fact subsequently became the force behind Champagne Houses Krug and Charles Heidsieck. Blue Pyrenees Estate was among the modern Australian wine industry’s first ventures into cool climate viticulture. Ample amounts of sunshine ensure our grapes ripen to full maturity with the heat moderated by altitude vineyards and southerly ocean winds. The climate is warm enough to give concentration and power, yet cool enough to give vibrancy and elegance, resulting in remarkable wines from Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Our Estate is surrounded by the picturesque blue-hued Pyrenees range named for its beauty and similarity to the Pyrenees mountains bordering France and Spain, though some think this explorer’s memory of what constituted a mountain may have been distorted by his long voyage across the flat seas of the Pacific!

French eccentricity was the hallmark of the Estate and the brand’s creation. In 2002 the Estate was purchased by a group of Australian wine-passionate businessmen. Eccentricity, with a New World twist, is guaranteed to continue with a new, innovative management and winemaking team at Blue Pyrenees Estate.
