Brilliant salmon pink colour.
Aromas of red apple, musk & rose petals.
The palate follows on from the aromas with red forest fruits, rosewater & a strong creamy confection mid palate giving an overall “turkish delight” effect whilst retaining a crisp, fresh & dry finish.
- Winemaking Notes
The 2018/2019 growing season provided spring rains & a cool start to summer until the new year before finishing with a dry warm Autumn. Most blocks of Pinot Noir grapes from the Blue Pyrenees Estate vineyard & select Merlot blocks were quickly 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 malolactic fermentation whilst being agitated on primary yeast lees for 6 months to impart the creamy mid palate & naturally stabilise the wine. These grapes & techniques create an ideal luncheon wine that matches many foods but should be served lightly chilled.

Toffee apple, Turkish Delight, gentle hints of strawberry wafting from glass. For that flavour and fruit on aroma, the palate does exactly what it asserts itself to be, that being bone dry, albeit with a slightly fuller textural profile from 6m on lees.
White pepper hints, a gentle phenolic rub across the palate, dry and long on a generous finish. Very good rosé. 92
This is Blue Pyrenees’ most popular selling wine and it is easy to see why. One glass just isn’t enough.
The eyes are immediately drawn to the light copper appearance in the glass. Mind you, the label is has impressive shelf appeal too. Dried cranberries, rhubarb and a strawberries and cream swirl consume the mouth.
Bright and delicately expressed, the bouquet shows crunchy apple, blossom, raspberry and subtle spice notes. It’s equally charming on the palate, delivering vibrant mouthfeel and crisp acidity, finishing lingering and mouth-watering.
I still have issues with the wild-west labelling of this excellent dry, refreshing wine. But heck, who am I to argue with BPE’s top seller in Australia?
The Wine is made from pinot noir and merlot and has been stirred on yeast less to build complexity. Its an ideal partner with light, salady lunches and a good drink on its own.
