This sparkling wine was made in the traditional method (methode champenoise) from a blend of hand-picked Chardonnay and Pinot noir.
It was allowed to undergo secondary fermentation with the addition of extra yeast and a small dose of sugar to provide its fizz. The Cuvée Rosé is aged in-bottle for twenty four months, before being hand riddled, to shake the yeast down to the neck of the bottle. The neck of the bottle was then frozen, the plug of frozen yeast disgorged, a touch of pinot noir wine added to ‘colour it up’, and a new cap placed on the bottle.
The wine has a faint blush of pink and a nose of strawberries and fresh sweet dough. The palate is clean and fresh, with a fine and persistent bead. It has flavours of sweet patisserie and light red fruits.
