REVIEW: 2009 Rosè Sparkling Wine, Estate Bottled
October 10, 2012
by Vic Harradine
A classic Chardonnay/Pinot Noir blend vinified as it is in Champagne, this spent three-plus years on its lees before being hand disgorged just prior to release. CdC has done all the hard work – just pop the cork and breathe in aromas of baking bread, strawberries and currants that herald a profusion of petite bubbles and delectable flavour with red berry fruit, yeasty notes and spiced red plum to the fore. It’s balanced and beautiful with a crisp, lip-smacking aftertaste. Sip or pour with salmon or white pizza. 4.5 stars
