This is the limited release for this coming Christmas and New Year season of our Cape Bernier Cuvée Rosé
The cooling sea breezes of our southern location on Tasmania’s East Coast are perfect for sparkling wines, and our average temperatures throughout the growing season are very similar to those of Champagne, but our extended season in the warmer vintages enables us to slowly ripen our fruit for table wines. This gives our Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris depth and complexity of flavours. Conversely, in the leaner vintages we can pick earlier and have lean fruit with higher levels of acidity which are perfect for creating our limited release vintage sparkling wines.
The Cape Bernier Cuvée Rosé 2011 exhibits crisp, fresh, fruity characters on the palate, and the palest of strawberry tints in the glass. This is a wine for celebration of those special moments in life, and when we look to the future with optimism. Its quality reflects our approach to hand-crafted wines produced from our cool coastal site.
