Accolades 2015 Amorim Cork Classique Challenge - Gold
BlendPercent 40% Chardonnay, 60% Pinot Noir
Cellar Pressing whole bunch, only the free run juice were used and separate parcels of each of the varietals were vinified in stainless steel tanks. With secondary fermentation the wine fermented and matured for 10 months on the lees in the bottle. After rémuage (turning of the bottles) the Non-Vintage Brut Rosé was disgorged and in line a dosage was added to residual level of 11g/l.
Harvest We used the traditional grape varietals, Chardonnay 40% and Pinot Noir 60%, that were handpicked in the cool of the early morning.
Variety Pinot Noir
Vineyard The average cold night and day temperatures increased the fruit acidity and grape quality of the Chardonnay. The Chardonnay was planted in limestone rich soils of Robertson. This ensured beautiful fruit expression. On the Pinot Noir the cold October and November weather led to smaller berry sizes, loose bunches and a better fruit concentration. The Pinot Noir was planted on cooler sites in the False Bay area, which contributed to the fresh acidity. With careful canopy management it was ensured that only the best bunches was left to ripen and produce this wine.
