2010 Rosé Méthode - SOLD OUT

2010 Rosé Méthode - SOLD OUT

Our 2010 Rosé Méthode Traditionelle is one of only two 100% Waiheke grown, bottle fermented sparkling wines in existence right now, so this can truly be described as a rare and unusual product! 

 

The wine is a delicate salmon pink colour, and displays a lively mousse of very fine bubbles in the glass. Made in a drier style, this unique cuvée is equally suitable for pairing with food or simply to enjoy on its own.

 

JOHN HAWKESBY: "From a Waiheke Island producer and one to watch, this wine has been a couple of years in development. It is 80 per cent chardonnay and (surprisingly) 20 per cabernet sauvignon. It has flavours of summer fruits, especially peaches and nectarines."

 

Our final blend...

  • Chardonnay (80%)
  • Cabernet Sauvignon (20%)

 

Alcohol by volume 13.8%

Detailed Tasting Notes
A daring varietal blend combining Chardonnay and, unconventionally, Cabernet Sauvignon grown on our own estate. The sweetness level of this wine is classified as BRUT, with approximately 6g/L of residual sugar perfectly balancing the gentle acidity and fresh fruit flavours. The wine went through tirage in August 2010, then spent 15 months on lees before disgorgement in November 2011.
