Centennial Vineyards Brut Rosé is a multi-vintage blend of Pinot Noir (64%) and Chardonnay (36%) all grown at our cool climate Bowral Vineyards in The Southern Highlands at 700m altitude.
This sparkling wine has been made using the traditional method of bottle fermentation and aged on yeast lees for 48 months. It has an authentic light salmon pink colour and shows complex aromas of strawberry, cherry, dried fruits, honey, and yeast. The palate has great poise and focus, with good richness and palate weight, and has wonderful crisp natural acidity that flows all the way through the clean, savoury finish.
This is a very elegant sparkling wine with fantastic line and length and cleansing acidity. Great with hors d’oeuvres.

“Pale smoked-salmon pink. Rich straw, smoky/meaty toasty pinot nose. The palate opens with searing acid, then fills out into a soft, medium-weight, slightly broad palate with a touch of liqueur but a dominant acid-driven dryness. Straw-hay characters are a bit plain. Rather rasping acid and a sour aftertaste. It does have some fruit quality. Intensity, depth, length, fruit flavour is good and it has concentration, plus some developed complexities. Like it.” Huon Hooke
