Wills Domain Cuvée d’ Élevage Sparkling Rose
Lovely very pale salmon pink, with a bright hue. Mousee is fine and persistent.
Refined with subtle berry and fruit tingle, overlayed with fresh clean autolysis characters.
Rich soft and generous with a seamless lingering balanced fine acidity. The palate has flavours of subtle strawberry and a delicate bouquet of red fruits and cherry.
Sourced from Merlot on the Wills Domain vineyard, this fruit was picked in the cool of the morning and immediately whole bunch pressed to minimize the pick-up colour and phenolics. Following settling the juice was racked and fermented with Zymaflore Spark, a yeast which is ideal for Sparkling base wines. The juice was fermented cool on a low level of solids, bentonite fined and cold stabilized after fermentation before being tiraged.
