The Brut Elite Rosé Cuvée 1801 is a multi-vintage based Rosé style of great sophistication and interest and is the first release of this label. A classic blend of the three noble varieties of premium, cold climate sparkling wine which creates beautiful complexity and structural elegance.
A contemporary Rosé exhibiting a very fine and persistent bead. A sophisticated dry palate with red fruit drive, elegant structure and excellent flavour persistence. Fruit flavours are reminiscent of cherry and lychee which are complimented by the secondary maturation characters of sourdough yeast and brioche. The multi-vintage blend further builds the maturity and complexity into both aroma and palate.

97 GOLD HALLIDAY POINTS - ".....Pale rose gold in the glass with a fine bead and energetic mousse. Aromas of red cherry, red apple and grapefruit are joined by hints of soft spice, freshly baked brioche, grilled nuts, mushroom broth, proving yeast and white and purple flowers. Super focused and complex with an array of gentle spice and pastry notes coming into play, slowly fading on a long, savoury finish. Excellent poise and tension throughout with minerally drive galore and a captivating 'sucking on a river stone' sapidity and textural ache on the exit. A great first-up release.” - Dave Brookes 2023
