Overview

The Clover Hill Brut Rosé is sourced entirely from the Clover Hill vineyard in the Pipers River region of north-east Tasmania, an area becoming acknowledged as the premier location for cool-climate sparkling wine in Australia. A limited release, Clover Hill Brut Rosé is crafted via controlled maceration of pinot noir to extract a soft, pink colour and reveal a highly expressive bouquet of rose petals and red strawberries. A small amount of pinot meunier was blended in prior to bottling to add fragrance and mid-palate weight. Clover Hill Brut Rosé 2010 is crafted according to traditional methods. Fermented in its bottle, this wine is aged on yeast lees for at least 36 months, ensuring the complexity and intensity that is the hallmark of Clover Hill.

Expert Reviews

BEST SPARKLING ROSE´ OF THE YEAR – RUNNER UP

92 Points; Clover Hill Exceptionnelle Brut Rose´ 2013

“Skin contact has infused a medium to full salmon crimson hue and delightful character and depth of red cherry and strawberry fruits. Close to three years on lees has built a creamy texture, while upholding primary red fruits purity amidst subtle nougat development. It finishes rich and fruit sweet, with a long, soft and fleshy finish.” Tyson Stelzer

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Clover Hill was established in 1986 as a dedicated sparkling wine estate. The Clover Hill vineyard, located in the Pipers River region of north east Tasmania, has ideal climatic conditions and terroir to create Australia’s finest sparkling wine.

Planted solely to traditional sparkling wine varieties, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, considerable variation in the vineyard’s aspect and soil profile adds further complexity to the fruit sourced. Slow ripening conditions enable the grapes to develop a full flavour spectrum, resulting in a sparkling wine of richness, concentration and superb structure.
