The St Hubert‘s sparkling program started in earnest in 2010. 100% Pinot Noir fruit from the Yarra Valley. Over 5 years on lees. Winemaker is the affable Greg Jarrett. A cellar door special only.
St Hubert’s, Sparkling Rosé, Yarra Valley, 2016
Pale pink salmon. Soft brioche with strawberry Danish pastry, cherry flesh, pink lady apple and peach skin. Easy mousse with fine delicacy. Fruit carries through a good length with vibrant acidity.
Rating: 18/20 (92/100)
Wine tasted at Treasury Premium Brands 2022 Portfolio tasting, at which I was a guest.
