Pale pink with a fine but persistent effervescence.
Red apple fruit characters along with bakery and cherry confection notes.
Authentic sparkling structure with maturity & softness surrounding the red apple fruit flavours. Toffee apple & berry danish also appear along a fine acid backbone. This is a complex wine with many flavours but most importantly for sparkling wine, it has balance & finesse, highlighted by a crisp clean effervescent finish.
- Winemaking Notes
The production of “Methode Traditionnelle” sparkling wines has been an
integral part of the winemaking at Blue Pyrenees for many years. This unique sparkling wine is made entirely of a selected batch of Pinot Noir fruit harvested from
our own Estate vineyard. Vintaging, maturing and packaging also occurs
on site. This wine makes the most of the Chateau advantage by rapidly
pressing early picked Estate Pinot Noir, the resulting juice and wine being
a gorgeous delicate pink colour. Aging with tank and bottled yeast lees for
24 months before disgorging and release allows this wine to mellow and
develop mature wine complexities. A perfect drop for most occasions and
particularly suited to hors d’oeuvres, but should be served chilled.

It has a pale salmon colour with fine, creamy bubbles and opens up with concentrated wild strawberry aromas under which there is plenty of savoury, brioche complexity – much more than you’d expect for a wine at this price.
If you like your sparkling pink, make a bee line to this.
Onion skin in appearance, it’s all mandarin peel and peaches and cream. Lovely and textural, a dash of lemon juice comes late with clean acidity whipping up the tail. A great fizz for not a lot of dough.
Pale, almost translucent bronze/onion skin in colour. Fine beading. Pink apple, light musk, “iced vovo” biscuit and grapefruit skin. Fine, dry and a while it’s the intent of the style (does what it says on the label?), it does run a little too lean, with the autolytic elements give some depth to the close.
