Eyes

Brilliant green straw with a fine bead of persistent gentle bubbles.

Nose

The aroma is delicate and complex with the yeast autolysis character of freshly baked bread complimented by citrus fruits and hazelnuts.

Mouth

Toasty baked yeast notes prevail over the bright grapefruit flavoured palate. A subtle lemon meringue confectionary note also appears before a fine acid backbone and refreshing effervescence cleanses the dry lemony finish.

Winemaking Notes

The production of “Methode Traditionnelle” sparkling wines has been an integral part of the winemaking at Blue Pyrenees for many years. Although handpicked fruit is desirable for the production of premium sparkling juices, daytime temperatures in most Australian wine regions mean that hand-picked fruit is often too warm when received into the press after a day's picking. 1n 1992 the team at Blue Pyrenees decided to experiment with hand picking at
night, under lights, to optimize both fruit condition and temperature. The results were an amazing improvement—crisper cuvee (free drained) juices of outstanding quality. The Midnight Cuvee was born. Nowadays the Blue Pyrenees team select the best fruit parcels, whilst on the vine, and continue to harvest at night, processing the fruit very rapidly, to generate the finest juices to use for the Midnight Cuvee. Although following the “methode traditionnelle” system is relatively expensive and time consuming, the rewards are evident in the glass.
