Sparkling Rose More Information

A sparkling Rosé made from Pinot Noir by the assemblage method, which involves blending a small portion of Pinot Noir red wine with our Classic cuvee base wine.

WINEMAKING NOTES

The red wine was made from a small parcel of exceptionally ripe Burgundy clone Pinot Noir. It was hand harvested and sorted in the vineyard before being processed by gravity and given a five day cold maceration. During fermentation it received either delestage or pigeage twice daily and was pressed off before the end. Our red wine was then blended with the Classic cuvee to give a classy fruit driven Sparkling Rosé.
