Eyes

Brilliant green with a pink hue & a very fine bead of persistent gentle bubbles.

Nose

The aroma is delicate & complex with almond, nougat & characteristics of freshly baked apple pie.

Mouth

Apple Danish with lemon flavours prevail on the front palate, followed by a subtle creamy mid palate, then the fine minerally acid backbone cleanses the soft dry finish.

Winemaking Notes

The production of “Methode Traditionnelle” (fermented in this bottle) sparkling wines has been an integral part of the winemaking at Blue Pyrenees Estate 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. So in 1992 the team at Blue Pyrenees decided to experiment with hand picking at night, under lights, to optimize both fruit condition & temperature. The results were an amazing improvement — crisper cuvee (free drained) juices of outstanding quality, with higher natural acidity. The Midnight Cuvee was born! In another first for Blue Pyrenees, during harvest 2014, handpicked Chardonnay & Pinot Noir grapes from Macedon Ridge vineyard, were whole bunch pressed, then included with the best Chardonnay parcels from the Blue Pyrenees Estate vineyard, to again lift the natural acidity & freshness of the blend.
