Pennon Hill Sparkling Rosé is made from 100% pinot noir grapes. This lightly sparkling Méthode Traditionelle wine shows generous fruit flavours of strawberry and cream, crisp acidity and impeccable length. Perfect for summer drinking.
This is a purpose-built rosé made from selected parcels of fruit and specific vinification techniques using 100% pinot noir.
74% of the fruit comes from our Tuerong vineyard, with the balance hailing from our Red Hill vineyard. 54% of the blend undergoes carbonic maceration for two weeks before being pressed. 46% of the blend is whole bunch pressed directly to stainless steel for cold settling followed by racking and fermentation with cultured yeast.
55% is fermented in old French oak utilising wild yeast, with the balance being fermented in stainless steel.
“Intensely fragrant, a combination red fruits including wild strawberry, raspberry, red currants and sour cherry combine withsome dried herbal aromas of sage and bay leaf. Floral notes,spice, earth and forest floor are woven nicely through the primary fruit. Careful oak handling imparts further complexity. The fruit ismoreish in quality and has an energy and vitality carrying thelong and bright finish.”
