The unusually warm, early and condensed 2016 vintage provided ideal conditions for intensity and concentration of character at low ripeness levels, enabling us to make a small quantity of sparkling Pinot Noir.
Displaying a freshness and vitality that bely the warm vintage and extended aging, this 2016 traditional method Sparkling Rosé features a bouquet of raspberry, guava and blood orange, coupled with elements of shortbread, mandarin peel and coriander. On the palate, the Pinot Noir announces its presence with richness and a truffle-like earthiness. Flavours of white strawberry, cranberry and gala apple intertwine with a saline acid backbone to carry through to a resounding finish. As this wine has spent an extended time in bottle sur lie, it is ready for immediate enjoyment. However further complexity may develop for a further 3-5 years under ideal cellaring conditions.
As per our inaugural releases of the 2014 and 2015 vintages, we have collaborated with renowned Australian illustrator Alexandra Nea to create a bespoke label. All bottles come in their own individual gift box, and with less than 300 cases made, this wine is a true rarity.
