In 2015 we made the decision to create our Vintage Brut Rosé wine exclusively from our estate vineyards in Strathbogie, Whitlands and the Yarra Valley. Having full control over all the fine details of our vineyards, block by block, row by row, gives us the precision and best expression of Australian sparkling wine grapes. Layer all this with our French heritage and know-how, and it becomes possible to produce a vintage release which shows the personality of each season, all within the Chandon Maison style.

TASTING NOTES
TASTING NOTES
Pale pink, with peach skin hues and very fine bubbles. Classic Pinot Noir stone fruit aromas, peach and background cranberry notes in the foreground, in the background fresh dough and biscuit characters derived from long yeast ageing. In the mouth, there is a sense of finesse and delicacy. Pinot Noir fruit characters of red berry and ripe peach are on display, with some grapefruit in the background very fine acidity completes the picture, with length of flavour.
WINEMAKING
WINE MAKING
Harvest began in mid-February in the Yarra Valley and a little later in March for the more elevated Strathbogie and Whitlands Plateau. The grapes from each site were pressed and fermented separately to ensure the unique characteristics of each parcel of fruit was retained. Importantly, the grapes were pressed in the vineyard, minimising the time between harvest and pressing, to protect the delicate aroma and minimise phenolic extraction. Each individual cuvée was then selected for its diverse varietal flavours, balanced structure and palate length. Following tirage and secondary fermentation, Chandon Vintage Brut 2015 spent over 36 months ageing on yeast, an essential part of the méthode traditionnelle process. Approximately 3% Pinot Noir red colour base was added to give the wine it’s delicate pink blush. The final varietal composition is Pinot Noir 47.2%, Chardonnay 43.9% and Meunier 8.9%.
FOOD PAIRING
Food Pairing Notes
Whether you're serving up a charcuterie board or a selection of share plates, our Vintage Rosé is a versatile chameleon that effortlessly enhances the flavours of a range of dishes, while adding a touch of brightness and depth.
OTHER NOTES
Other Notes
Mild conditions in late winter and a favourable start to spring resulted in an early budburst for varieties such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Late spring and early summer provided ideal conditions leading into veraison. Summer remained mild, with few days in excess of 35°C. This, combined with good canopy cover and cool nights, resulted in one of the best vintages since 2002 for early varieties, such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Abundant flavour with some of the best acid balance we have seen shows amazing promise for the complexity and longevity of the 2015 wines.
