Chandon Cygnet Pinot Meunier Rose 2014 (6 x 750mL), Yarra Valley, VIC'

$37.99 per Bottle
$227.94 per pack

Pinot Meunier is relatively rare in Australia, compared to Pinot Noir, and often overlooked as a result. Closer examination of the wines we are making from this variety show us just what is possible. Pinot Meunier, like the ugly duckling, stands out as different to all the "other" Pinot during winemaking. When allowed to grow and develop, it turns into a swan of unique beauty. Floral notes and a sense of sunshine and generosity characterise this unusual variety. During vintage, there are parcels of fruit which arrive in the winery which are undeniably superior, showing strong character, interesting complexity and compelling personality. Of course, we readily use such parcels in our Vintage wines, but sometimes it’s possible to tirage a smaller parcel as a standalone, unique cuvée. Chandon Cygnet Pinot Meunier Rosé 2014 is a special opportunity to present this single variety from our estate vineyards.

Expert Reviews

I thought at first that it might have been grown at Cygnet, in Tasmania, but it seems to have been grown in the Yarra Valley, and the Strathbogie Ranges, and at Whitlands. It’s named after the ugly duckling/swan analogy. Varietal pinot meunier isn’t exactly common in Australia; sparkling versions even less so.

It tastes exotic. It tastes different. It will take conversation and rouse it. The flavours and indeed aromas here are all rose petals and pink grapefruit, spice and redcurrant. It bursts from the glass, drawing you in, and delights on the palate, the only real caution being a dip just prior to the finish. It takes off with a promise of sweetness but by the end it almost feels sinewy and certainly dry; it very much mimics pink grapefruit, not just in flavour. Interesting wine for sure.

Winery Tasting Notes

The wine is a delightful rose petal pink colour with persistent mousse. Strawberry, redcurrant and pink grapefruit aromas, typical of Whitlands fruit, provide a ‘fresh scones straight from the oven’ effect. The palate echoes of red currant and pink grapefruit and ginger biscuit, alongside creaminess, fine bubbles and bright acidity.
