In the glass, a pale salmon colour with a ruby hue. On the nose, hints of white strawberries and rose petals are amplified by distinct saline undertones. On the palate, bright maraschino cherry notes add complexity to the overall vibrant and bright acidity. An electric wine, capturing the equilibrium between richness, density, and freshness. The finish is clean, with smoky notes and pearl-like bubbles.

Another top class release from Benjamin Bridge, the 2011 Rosé Brut (equal parts pinot meunier and pinot noir with 15% chardonnay) crackles with energy, marvellous grace and finesse. It's subtle and discreet, two years on the lees lending a faintly biscuity note, though tart cherry, raspberry and lemon fruit is present in equal measure. Modest 11.5% alcohol and nearly 11 grams of acid make this seem bone dry yet not aggressive nor austere, such is the underlying intensity. A wine that invites sip after sip; pure pleasure. Tasted May 2015.
