Cracka Review

This is the first release of this bonny Rose sparkling from Kreglinger, and it's a beauty! Aromas of red berries, brioche, soft spice and citrus waft out of the glass to enliven the senses, whilst the palate is elegant, tight and citrusy, with a fine bubble, licks of breadiness and earthy savouriness, and a crisp, dry finish that just keeps on truckin'. Great value at the price for something of this quality. It can more than hold it's own against the more expensive French Rose Champagnes.

Winemaker's Notes

Colour: A tranquil colour, intriguing pale apricot, reminiscent of a Tibetan sunset with all its purity, clarity and depth

Bouquet: Classic cool climate Kreglinger Brut Rosé aromas. A sensual extravagant rosé with all the hallmarks of fine cool climate sparkling, displaying the subtle hints of floral roses, exotic spice, sweet crusty bread, ripe stewed strawberries, rhubarb and quince jelly, all finely integrated and balanced with pinot noir nuances.

Palate: Cool climate Kreglinger rosé. A captivating, long, rich and balanced palate; sophisticated and beautifully defined creamy/bready mousse (Cordon de Mousse) forming a necklace, with strings of pearl bead that provides both fine and lively texture to the mineral quartz mouth feel. Freshly baked sweet bread, blood orange, ripe nectarine and the subtle hints of rhubarb and wild strawberry. The addition of our liqueur de dosage at disgorgement has added additional richness and complexity to the already multi-layered palate. The finish is long and elegant with hints of marzipan nuttiness and mineral infused characters that lead to a crisp, long, dry structured, lingering finish. An ideal compliment to food.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Salmon pink - a Tibetan sunset, says the back label; very fine wine with very clear strawberry notes ex the 100% pinot noir base; has great balance and very good length; bell-clear finish and aftertaste.
