About

About The Wine

This is Dominique’s NV Sparkling Rose. A joyous wine made in a style reminiscent of the wines of his beloved homeland.

A three way blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier, this wine was once named Best Australian Sparkling Rosé at the inaugural Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships in London and has received many great reviews from the likes of James Halliday and Wine Front’s Campbell Mattinson.

This a serious European style bubbly with a lofty pedigree and a more than humble price tag. Undoubtedly one of the best buys for this style in the country.

About Dominique Portet

Dominique Portet, quite simply, is international winemaking royalty. From a winemaking family that stretches back 10 generations in Bordeaux, his father Andre Portet was régisseur (vineyard and winery manager) of Chateau Lafite-Rothschild in Pauillac.

He is one of the original “Flying Winemakers”, having scoured the world in search of new and interesting exploits in wine which eventually lead him to the Yarra Valley.

Here Portet found “... wines with a fragrance and structure reminiscent of the wines of Bordeaux. The Yarra has a charm and a beauty that engulfs you, and its wines are worldly” and chose this as his home away from home.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

This looks so inviting in the glass. Bright salmon-pink/rose colouring with a fine bead. Looks like the real deal. There is a whole lot going on on the nose. There are fresh, wild raspberries and strawberries backed by hints of herbs and rose petals. Subtly complex without being pretentious. It’s spicy yet elegant on the palate and slightly creamy, and the low dosage (additional sugar) leaves you with a fresh mouth afterward. - Different Drop Wine Team

Additional Info

From The Producer

The grapes for this traditional-method sparkling came from two elevated vineyards (325m) in the Upper Yarra. Both sites have benefited from very good growing conditions over recent vintages, with abundant warm days, cool nights and very little rain. This has allowed the fruit to ripen gradually with excellent flavour development and balanced sugars and acids.

The grapes were handpicked, gently pressed and fermented before going through secondary fermentation in bottle. The wine was then aged for two years in our cool, temperature-controlled cellars, then disgorged and given a light dosage prior to release.

Blend : Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay
Closure : Cork
Bottle Size : 750ml
