The Brut Rosé is rosy pink in colour and exudes red fruit aromas which follow through with cherry, raspberry and candyfloss flavours. The palate is fresh and lively with a fine mousse and strawberries linger on the aftertaste.
The different grape varietals were harvested during January at 19.5 balling to retain the crisp acidity and ensure a quality base wine. Whole bunch pressing yielded the best free run juice at max 500L/ton which was fermented in stainless steel tanks and left on the lees for a few months before blending and bottling. The secondary fermentation in bottle took ± 6 weeks to complete, after which the sparkling wine then spent a total of 23 months ageing on the fine yeast lees. Disgorgement took place in June 2019 during which a small amount of dosage was added to balance the final product.
