Winery Tasting Notes
Intriguing, reminiscent of a Tibetan sunset with purity, clarity, depth and vibrancy of colour.
Classic Kreglinger Brut Rose aromas, a sensual extravagant rose with all the hallmarks of fine cool climate sparkling, displaying the subtle hints of sweet exotic spice, fresh crusty bread, stewed strawberries, ripe fleshy fig and quince jelly, all finely integrated and balanced by gamey pinot noir nuances.
Cool climate Kreglinger rose. A captivating, long, rich and balanced palate; sophisticated and beautifully defined creamy/bready mousse (Cordon de Mousse) forming a necklace, with strings of pearl bead that provides both fine and lively texture to the mouth feel. Freshly baked crusty bread, blood orange, ripe nectarine and the subtle hints of rhubarb and wild strawberry, The addition of our liqueur de dosage at disgorgement has added richness and complexity to the already multi-layered palate. The finish is long and elegant with marzipan nuttiness and mineral infused characters with a flavour richness that leads to a crisp, long dry lingering finish making it an ideal compliment to food.
Kreglinger Brut Rose is made to complement food, and goes well with seafood, including prawns and lobster, grilled, marinated and sautued fish and shellfish, or slightly pinker style meats including lamb, ham and game.
