Chardonnay Pinot Noir Pinot Meunier Pyrenees Victoria
The essential Victorian Methode traditionelle, from vines surrounded by the blue hued Pyrenees, so named for their beauty and similarity to the dividing ranges bordering France and Spain. French eccentricity was the genesis behind Blue Pyrenees Estate, it remains central to the winemaking philosophy. Entrepreneur Francois Henri was so inspired by the picturesque blue hills that he commissioned a painting which has since become the famous label. A cépage of the holy trinity, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, a healthy tranche of Meunier.
Brilliant straw yellow, a fine persistent bead. Complex aromas of baker's dough, freshly baked biscuits and nougat after an extended ageing on yeast lees. Subtle hints of lemon and confection give an overall impression of freshness and vitality. Concentrated yeast autolysis characters and grapefruit flavours, Pinot Meunier adds complexity, the lively palate is driven by a fresh acidity, which lingers harmoniously on the attractive, creamy finish.
