Description

Aged Sparkling Wine
Sparkling wines age remarkably well as CO2, contained in the bubbles, is a natural preservative. With time, sparkling wines develop characters such as grilled nuts, baked confection, brioche, creme brulee, toasted waffles fresh oyster shell, cream cheese and blue cheese. These wines also gain a softer texture with age as small decreases in the level of dissolved CO2 over time result in a softer, creamier palate with the acid often less apparent.

WINE CLUB: $45.00 – exclusive to wine club members.
Two bottle limit per customer.

Eyes

Original tasting note: Brilliant straw green with a pale pink hue.

Nose

The complex aromas of toast, freshly baked biscuits and nougat are evidence of extended ageing on yeast lees. Subtle hints of lemon and red apple give an overall impression of freshness and vitality.

Mouth

The 2008 Blue Pyrenees Vintage Brut exhibits a fine and persistent bead, concentrated yeast autolysis characters and citrus fruit flavours. The lively palate is driven by a fresh acidity, which lingers harmoniously with the aged complexity.

Winemaking Notes

The Blue Pyrenees Vintage Brut 2008 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 and Pinot Meunier, which each present varietal and regional characters, creating a beguiling complex blend. The judicious use of small amounts of reserve wine adds complexity and maturity whilst helping to maintain consistency from year to year.
