Fermoy Estate

2020 Vintage Brut Rosé

$40

Vintage: 2020 – fruit sourced from Pemberton, a cooler climate renowned for growing excellent fruit for sparkling wine. A nice warm and dry ripening period allowed for fruit to ripen gradually without disease pressure.

Varietals (%’S):  90% Pinot Noir; 10% Chardonnay

Appearance:  Bright, pale salmon pink. Brilliant clarity, with a fine, persistent bead.

Aroma:  Scents of rosehip, citrus blossom and wild strawberry with complexing notes of brioche, shortcrust, lemon cream and toasted cashews.

Palate:  Made in the traditional method, this wine has spent 18 months on lees in bottle prior to disgorgement. This time allows for more complex characters and textures to evolve – pastry, nougat, cream complementing delicate fruit notes. A beautifully soft and delicate mousse and fine, persistent bead carry the flavours and continually refresh the palate.

Oak Detail: The base wine was fermented in seasoned French oak barriques and puncheons to help build texture and mouthfeel.

Cellaring:  Ready for immediate drinking and will continue to evolve and drink well over the next 4-5 years.

Food Pairing:  A perfect aperitif wine, drink standing up, with canapes!

Alcohol Volume:  12.5%
Acidity:  pH 3.35; TA 6.6g/L
Residual Sugar:  8.0g/L
