Description

Grapes for the 2011 Salmon Brut were grown in the Piccadilly Valley - the coolest, wettest and most humid site in the Adelaide Hills.
Such climatic conditions produce plump, non-dessicated grapes which result in crisp, finely -flavoured wines.
Gentle bunch pressing of chilled grapes gave the wine its soft, long finish. Strawberry and cherry aromas are from the pinot noir grape and the biscuity bouquet and flavour are due to extended time on yeast lees. Addition of pinot noir fermented on its dark skins gives the attractive salmon hue and contributes to richness and flavour. Serve chilled.

Professional Reviews

“Medium to light pink hue and an ultra-complex smoky, strawberry aroma, very appealing and charming. Nutty oak nuances. Full-bodied and rich, concentrated, powerful and very, very long. Big, rich flavour, the dosage beautifully judged leading to wonderful drinkability. (100% made in old hogsheads. No malolactic fermentation. 24 months on lees.)”

“The bouquet has very complex smoky, toasty and strawberry aromas with a little oak nuttiness. It’s full-bodied, rich, powerful and tremendously long. Concentrated and very pinoty. Precise. balanced and very drinkable.”

“Pale pink. Juicy redcurrant fruit. Riper and more fruity than their dry styles, and more user friendly as a result.”
