A demi-sec style with a touch of sweetness showing strawberry, pear with hints of almond and yeast.. Perfect for any occasion – on its own, with dessert or breakfast … extraordinary with eggs benedicte!
Chardonay Pinot Noir blend handpicked fruit from vines 16 to 26 years old, 3 years on yeast lees .. Creamy palate with integrated acid providing balance to this unctuous yet elegant wine. Strawberry, stone fruit, citrus and pastry characters provide further structure. Balance is maintained through to the back of the palate and finishes with excellent length. 13% alc.
Huon Hooke for The Real Review ... “For those who prefer a little more sweetness, there is the NV Yarrabank Crème de Cuveé. Although it is a demi-sec style, the sweetness is beautifully integrated and it gives weight and length to the palate, and there are enough savoury flavours to balance the sweetness. It is like dessert in a glass.”
90 points, Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front “This is Yarrabank’s “sweeter” sparkling option. It offers just a little more than mere sweetness. It tastes of cooked apple and toffee with flashes of strawberry and toast too. There’s plenty of colour to the wine; you’d call it ‘pale crimson’ but it’s easy to see copper and magenta colours too. It is sweet but it finishes fresh, almost crisp; it’s not syrupy or excessive. It offers reasonable depth of flavour too. It’s not for everyone but it’s pretty well done.”
90 points, Tyson Stelzer for Halliday Wine Companion “With a medium crimson hue, this is a sweet rose of apple, watermelon and strawberry fruit, and the spicy, nutty complexity and lees texture of 3 years of bottle age. It culminates in a long and complex yet candied finish. A serious offering for the sweet tooth.”
