About The Wine
A demonstration of true alchemy occurs in the creation of this wine, requiring unique procedures of blending and red-winemaking. 75% of this blend comes from Pinot Noir grapes,10 % of which underwent a soak-on-the-skins maceration process, giving our Brut Rosé its colour, its unique red fruit aromas, and its vivacious qualities. The remaining 25% of Chardonnay grapes assist in creating a perfect harmony, adding finesse and elegance to the blend. 15 % of the wines used are reserve wines from previous vintages and 15 % of the base wine underwent a french oak barrel fermentation. This wine matured on the lees for at least 24 months before release, at a consistent temperature of 14°C, allowing for aromas to develop, merge, and weave their magic.
John Platter Wine Guide 4.5 Stars: “Pinot Noir dominated NV bubbly has impressive berry character, subtle spice. Very dry, with weight and length from small oaked portion, some reserve wine and two years on lees.”
