Pinot Noir Pinot Meunier Pipers Brook Tasmania
A rich cÃ©page of Pinot Noir and Meuniere, sourced exclusively from the elite Clover Hill Vineyard at Pipers River, the nation's most prestigious sparkling wine. In 1986, on the site of an old dairy farm, the magnificent Clover Hill property was planted to vine by the Goelet family, with a view to articulating the final word in Australian sparkling. Since inaugural vintage in 1991, Clover Hill has earned an international reputation for its uncompromising elegance, finesse and eloquent Tasmanian styling.
Fruit is picked entirely from the distinguished Clover Hill estate property, the premier location for sparkling wine in Australia. A limited release, Exceptionnelle RosÃ© owes its graceful pink hues to a timely maceration of grapes for extraction of colour. Dominated by Pinot Noir for its perfumes of rose petal and strawberry, Pinot Meunier contributes lifted fruit characters and mid palate weight. Crafted according to true Methode Traditionelle, fermented in its own bottle and aged on yeast lees for three years, ensuring the complexity and intensity which is the hallmark of Clover Hill. The final liqueur dosage is prepared from a selection of precious stocks, aged in oak foudres.
Attractive salmon pink colour, a fine persistent bead and gentle foaming mousse. Cherries, biscuit and floral nose. Crisp and precise, unravelling layers of lifted redcurrant, ripe strawberry, spice and rose petal characters. An elegant effervescent wine with an extraordinary depth of flavours and exquisite length. The first choice for aperitif, a superb food wine alongside delicate cuisine such as pate, smoked fish and game.
