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.
