Dominique Portet Brut Rose NV
The Brut rose sees exclusively upper Yarra Valley fruit made from premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay fruit which as a result of its elevation is a perfect cool climate profile delivering fruit depth, complexity and acid line. This NV comes mainly from the 2020 vintage and is made up of 60% Pinot and 40% Chardonnay. As always the Brut Rose NV is made using champagne traditional method and the fruit is always hand picked, gently pressed and vilified in steel tanks. There is then a secondary fermentation in bottle where it spends at least 2 years on years lees in cool cellars. A light dosage of 5g/l is also done prior to release. A gorgeous salmon pink colour with a nose showing rose petals, lemon pith, shortbread and strawberries. An energetic palate with brioche notes and vibrant red fruits. Lovely aromatics with a clean and fresh, zesty palate.
