Bright green with a pale pink hue.
The complex aromas of toast, freshly baked biscuits & nougat are evidence of extended aging on yeast lees. Subtle hints of lemon & apple give an overall impression of freshness & vitality.
The 2013 Blue Pyrenees Vintage Brut exhibits a fine & persistent bead, concentrated yeast autolysis characters plus red & green apple fruit flavours. The lively palate is driven by a fresh acidity, which lingers harmoniously with the aged complexity.
- Winemaking Notes
True to our French origins, all Blue Pyrenees sparkling wines are created using the traditional “methode champenoise” system, meaning that the bottle you are drinking from is the same bottle in which the secondary fermentation occurred. The Blue Pyrenees Vintage Brut 2013 also expresses the special qualities of the component wines chosen when creating this consistent house style. The Blue Pyrenees team has incorporated the best cuvées from the three classic sparkling varieties — Chardonnay, Pinot Noir & Pinot Meunier, each presenting varietal & regional characters, creating a beguiling complex blend. The judicious use of small amounts of reserve wine adds more complexity & maturity whilst helping to maintain consistency from year to year.

Classic varieties with over 3 years on lees. Full straw colour, fine bead. Excellent secondary aged characters of sourdough and brioche, but also cork aged notes which add depth and complexity. Its great appeal is flavour, neatly packaged with well judged acidity and dosage.
