After aging for 54 months (4.5 years) sur lattes we have disgorged our 2013 RD (Recently Disgorged) Rosé Method Traditional.
The 2013 vintage was balanced, with warm days and cool nights, in fact very similar to the stellar vintage of 2011. Better spring weather and a decent crop in the vineyard (still low at 1.5 tonnes per acre) also helped us harvest fruit of high quality.
The Rosé Method Traditional 2013 is pale Salmon in colour, the nose and palate reminds us of classic strawberries & brioche, with a long finish and refreshing acidity.
The dosage is 4g/L, the disgorgement date is July 5th, 2021.
Made of 85% Pinot Noir & 15% Chardonnay grown on our farm.
The fruit was hand picked from our vineyard with the perfect acidity and sugar levels for sparkling. Our grapes take longer to reach the sugar and acidity levels needed for sparkling in PEC (when compared to other sparkling wine regions) and as a result our grapes display very complex ripe flavours at time of harvest.
The term method traditional is synonymous with champagne.
