Vibrant and fresh, salmon-pink coloured bubbles with cherry, strawberry and rose-water flavours. Red berry flavours explode on the pallet and leaves a lingering aftertaste.
MCC Brut Rose 2013
A cool and wet winter allowed vines to go into proper dormancy. We experienced severe winds at the end of November and extreme heat wave conditions at the end of December. Luckily this did not affect the sensitive flowering and ripening stages too much. We experienced a cool summer with the highest rainfall for February in many years. This resulted in slower ripening and the ability to harvest at lower sugar levels and with good canopy management and perfect harvest decisions we manage to bring the Chardonnay in without any rot or spoilage problems due to the wet conditions during the latter ripening stages. This resulted in refined wines with elegance and good natural acidity.
The harvest dates were 31st January – 2nd of February 2012.
