Blue Pyrenees were established through a no expense spared approach, by two of the wine world's most revered, accomplished and resourced estates. A superior standard of viticulture and exacting vinification techniques were the priority, they remain at the very core of the Blue Pyrenees raison d'être.
Brilliant pale straw green with a very fine bead of persistent gentle bubbles. The aroma is delicate & complex with characteristics of fresh lemon curd. Fresh lemon sherbet notes prevail on the front palate, followed by a soft dry creamy mid palate, then the fine minerally acid backbone creates the granny smith apple finish.
The wine is pale in colour and has beautifully fine bubbles. It is also instantly appealing with huge complexity on display. There is brioche and praline aromas with a citrus and floral backbone to match. The palate is crisp, dry and refined with complex fruit sitting on a bolt of acidity (thank you Macedon Ranges) which drives a long and fine finish. It is super young too so feel free to put it down, at least for a couple of years, to see this wine at its best. Price: $38.00; Drink: 2022-2029; Rating: 95 Points; Angus Hughson; Wine Pilot
The flagship of the Blue Pyrenees sparkling’s and it treads the line between youthful citrus tones and the complexity that comes from time on lees in bottle. The nose has a lemony edge to nectarine fruit and subtle mealy tones. The palate has vibrant, green apple inspired acidity with more expansive stone fruits and brioche building slowly with excellent mouthfeel and enough oyster shell inspired acidity to provide excellent length to finish.
