- VIC - Yarra Valley
A blend of pinot noir and chardonnay grown in the Yarra Valley, and fermented in this bottle; bright pale pink, it has most attractive strawberry fruit flavours, with very good length; the LD signifies light dosage (ie lesser than normal sugar added to the wine after disgorgement). It all works perfectly to result in a wine for all seasons.
Rating 94 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (SEP/2011)
Winery Tasting Notes
The current Brut Rosé release is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay, made in the traditional method and sourced from fruit grown in the Yarra Valley. The grapes were handpicked, gently pressed and fermented before going through the secondary fermentation inside this bottle. Following this, the wine was aged for two years inside our cellars, then disgorged and lightly dosed prior to release.
It is a savoury sparkling wine with fresh strawberries and rose petals on the nose that follows into a fresh, dry, creamy finish.
“The key to the elegance and crispness is spice, strawberry, apple, all folded into the palate, fresh and dry" 94 points James Halliday, Top 100, Weekend Australian
