SKU: Chandon WMS Rose 2013

Chandon winemaker’s selection wines are chosen specially for extended ageing prior to release. The wines represent the paradox of wine maturation, whereby the finest wines age incredibly slowly and present with freshness and vibrancy alongside the complexity drawn from méthode traditionnelle.

TASTING NOTES
TASTING NOTES
On opening the wine presents with a pale pink colour, very fine bead and persistent mousse. Aromas of fresh citrus blossom, pink grapefruit and redcurrant overlay delicate biscuit. The palate is very fine and delicate, with white peach and redcurrant flavours, and a gently creamy texture.
WINEMAKING
WINE MAKING
Yarra Valley vineyards were picked in late February and early March before harvest began at Strathbogie and the more elevated Whitlands Plateau. The Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier grapes from each site were pressed and fermented separately to ensure the unique characteristics of each parcel of fruit were retained. Each individual cuvée was then selected for its diverse varietal flavours, balanced structure and palate length – all essential for the Chandon Maison style. A small amount of red wine Pinot Noir was included to give the wine a delicate hue and reinforce the red fruit elements in the wine.
FOOD PAIRING
Food Pairing Notes
Poached ocean trout with orange and fennel salad; pork xiao long bao dumplings; double cream brie.
OTHER NOTES
Other Notes
Good winter and early spring rains provided perfect conditions for strong shoot and leaf growth. As a result, the fruit was protected from the summer heat. While late January through to March will be remembered as being warm, night-time temperatures were relatively cool, aiding acid retention and slow ripening.
VINEYARD
Grapes were sourced from a range of the finest cool climate viticultural sites in the southern wine regions of Australia, including the Yarra Valley, Tasmania, Whitlands Plateau and Macedon. At a range of altitudes from 250m to 820m elevation respectively, the location of these vineyards brings cool nights, allowing the slow development of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir flavours while retaining terrific natural acidity.
