2017 SABRE Rosé

Macedon, Henty, Pyrenees
My ultimate desert island wine! A carefully assembled combination of barrel and tank fermented Chardonnay and Pinot Noir base wines to create a textural, dry sparkling. A small addition of Ballarat Pinot Noir at dosage lends a subtle burst of colour and expands the palate in all directions.  John Harris - Winemaker.

Notes on the 2015: "Chardonnay/pinot noir. Tiraged Nov '15, disgorged Jun '19, 3g/l dosage. A master sparkling maker at the top of his game, John Harris shows his Domaine Chandon training off with each release. Pale salmon-blush. Tight bead, pinot-led smoky and strawberry scent. Extended yeast age produces inviting flavours of cherry kernel, pomegranate, roast nuts. Seamlessly balanced, crunchy acidity." 95 Points

Tasting
Notes

Shimmering rose gold, fine, complex, crisp and refreshingly dry.

A splash of Ballarat Pinot Noir at dosage lends a burst of colour and expands the palate in all directions.

Pale pink colour with a shy, elusive yet definitely strawberry-scented aroma. A light sprinkling of herbs, too. The palate is light and crisp, dry and mouth-puckering, with lively acidity and refreshing aftertaste that leaves you looking for some food. Nice creamy texture yet dry on the finish. Plenty of energy. A very fine style of rosé, which could take some more age to advantage.
