Cracka Review

This lovely bubbly is pretty in pink as it displays attractive aromas of strawberries and cream on the nose with licks of soft spice and earthiness. The palate is medium-bodied and smooth with a kiss of sweetness, a dairy-like mouthfeel, licks of buttered toast, and a silky, bright finish. Smoked salmon would be the bomb with this, and it would match the colour!

Winemaker's Notes

A me´thode traditionnelle sparkling Brut Rose´ blended from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Extended yeast ageing has produced a deliciously soft, fresh and creamy wine with incredible length and finesse.

Rich salmon pink in colour, the nose delivers enticing aromas of freshly baked pastry and nougat along with spice notes and hints of cherry and ripe strawberry. The palate is dense and multi-layered with mouth-filling red berry flavours complemented by toasty characters. A beautifully structured mid-palate is supported by savoury spice and fine creamy notes. The inclusion of red pinot noir base wine in the blend provides great complexity, persistence and a sublime long, dry finish.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
A 55/45% Pinot Noir/Chardonnay, made from 40 different cuvees deriving from eight regions in four states. No traditional method sparkling wine made elsewhere in Australia or the world has such a massive range of terroir. It contains 8% pinot noir table wine, and spent 30 months on lees prior to disgorgement. It has a delicious strawberries and cream mid-palate, and a long, clean and crisp finish.

Rose tends to mean sweeter. This wine has strawberry and a rich full body, sophistication, and subtle flavours. Smoky yeastiness comes with time.
