Annabelle Cremant Rosé NV


In stock
Clare Valley, Australia


Introducing 'Annabelle,' an exquisite vintage sparkling rosé artfully crafted in the esteemed Crémant de Bordeaux style, employing the meticulous Methode Traditionelle with secondary fermentation in the bottle. Drawing inspiration from the acclaimed Louis Vallon Crémant de Bordeaux, celebrated as the 2020 Bordeaux Wine of the Year by the prestigious Paris Wine Cup.

This unique vintage harmoniously blends Cabernet and Merlot grapes, resulting in a well-balanced symphony of flavors. Imbued with a refreshing acidity and delicate length, it seamlessly marries fruit-forward richness with savory undertones. Delight in the enchanting notes of ripe strawberry and cherry, accompanied by a subtle interplay of lime and rose petal. The experience is further elevated by a gentle effervescence that adds a touch of finesse to every sip.

The vineyard is located above Rylstone in the Central Ranges GI of NSW (40km southeast of Mudgee, 70km northeast of Bathurst). It was planted in 1998 by Richard & Janet de Beaurepaire, with a mixture of Bordeaux, Rhône, and Burgundy varieties with the intention of selling most of the grapes whilst organically growing wine production. The decision to plant the vineyard at this location over other established winegrowing regions (including family winemaking operations in the Yarra Valley) was due to the similarity of the terroir to Burgundy – the home of the de Beaurepaire family.

The vineyard is in a mountain valley, 150 kilometres from the coast in the Great Dividing Range. It is planted on North facing slopes rising from the Cudgegong River to an altitude of 650m. Geologically, the vineyard is planted on an Ordovician-era (450 MY ago) coral reef with shallow sandy and sandy-loam soils on limestone. The limestone was mined nearby until recently by Kandos Cement. The altitude, distance from ocean and poor heat retention of the soil and limestone, creates an inland continental climate as cool as Central Otago in New Zealand and Tasmania in Australia during the growing season with extreme diurnal variation – late Sept/Oct Budburst, Jan/Feb Veraison and March/April Harvest.
