97 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday
This sophisticated rosé sparkling boasts alluring complexity and a vibrant character. It’s moderate salmon-pink in colour with a hint of crimson and a lively yet fine, persistent bead. The 2007 vintage displays enticing aromas of lifted fresh red berries complemented by oyster, field mushroom and toast. This is a low-dosage style with structural elegance built around fine tannins and an acid backbone, which is seamless and persistent. The red wine and oak structure of this wine make it a great companion to rich and complex food pairings.
“First fermentation 92% in stainless steel, 8% in new French barriques; disgorged December ’17. It immediately proclaims its class; the flowery/spicy/biscuity bouquet translates directly into the elegant, finely detailed palate. The flavours seem airborne in the mouth before landing on and driving the long finish.” – 97 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday
