A very refreshing light rose that is great in summer. Chilled it works well with many different dishes.

Pale pink with an orange hue.
Glazed cherries & rose petals come to mind.
The palate follows on from the aromas lead with fresh strawberry fruit & strong creamy confection flavours whilst retaining a crisp, fresh & dry finish.
- Winemaking Notes
The cool 2016/2017 growing season had plentiful rains throughout removing the need for irrigation. All blocks of Pinot Noir grapes from the Blue Pyrenees Estate vineyard & select Merlot & Shiraz blocks were lightly pressed soon after night harvesting to minimise colour & phenolic extraction. The resulting pale pink juice was fermented to dryness by
selected yeast strains in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The young wines then underwent malo-lactic fermentation as they were agitated on primary yeast lees for six months to impart the creamy mid palate & naturally stabilise the wine. These techniques create an ideal luncheon wine that matches many foods but should be served chilled.

This one was just perfect with the Christmas turkey and treats on the big day. Chilled down
nicely it revealed Turkish delights and nice cherry and creams.
Blue Pyrenees Estate 2017 Bone-Dry Pinot Noir Rosé — at this time of year, restaurant tables should be packed with this type of refreshing chilled drink. It’s dry, it’s balanced and it tastes good. Ask no more.
I’m almost at the point where I taste more rose than any other variety/style. Certainly during spring/summer I do. So much rose on the Australian market now. This edition from Blue Pyrenees Estate is made with pinot noir. Pale copper-crimson colour. Bone dry it most definitely is. This rakes through the palate with spice, cranberry and strawberry-like flavour. It’s a mouthwatering, savoury style. Not a lot of flesh admittedly but it makes it work. Plenty of attitude, in a good way.
Talented Victorian winemaker Andrew Koerner made the gold medal-winning Blue Pyrenees Estate Bone Dry Rosé 2017. Check out the striking label art featuring a deer skull encrusted with roses. Barbie would be aghast. It is made from pinot noir grapes, has aromas of rose petal and Turkish Delight, and the flavour of freshly picked cherries.
Lovely pale tea rose colour. Red berry scented with notes of cranberry and Turkish delight. It’s hard not to fall for its soft delicate juicy palate and just enough savoury notes to maintain freshness and interest. Crowd pleasing stuff. The lowish alcohol, a bonus. *Star for Special Value.
