Muse Extra Brut Rosé 2009

Drinking Guide

 

Drink 2014-2033.

After four years on lees, this light, dry aperitif matches brilliantly with food or can be cellared for a special occasion. Shy at release, the nose is composed of toffee apples, toasted brioche, berries, and a hint of an ocean breeze. It is a trinity at work; the Chardonnay, Pinot noir and developed yeast character deliver complex flavours, a light palate, creamy mousse, chalky tannins and outstanding length. Its bold acidity and citrus flavours match with fresh seafood or cold smoked salmon when young.

Vintage Description
Technical Details

Our flagship sparkling is an intriguing dark salmon-pink. With four years on lees, the aperitif style offers a complex bouquet composed of freshly baked biscuits and brioche, perfumed floral, spice, strawberry and quince aromas. The palate is long, creamy and elegant yet tremendously focussed and balanced. As the wine matures spice, mineral, nut and stone fruit flavours will develop increasing richness and softness whilst the vibrant natural acidity preserves balance and harmony. The fruit was sourced from the Moorilla owned and operated St. Matthias vineyard, north-east facing on the West Bank of the Tamar River and from a contract vigneron who has been growing sparkling fruit for us in Winkleigh for many years. This site is a cooler and higher altitude site a few kilometres inland from the Tamar River. Both are typically low yielding sites. The fruit was handpicked when flavour and acid profiles were considered optimal. Note that the cool 2009 season resulted in a harvest 17 days later than 2008.

An all-enveloping mousse fills the palate, with strawberry, red cherry and touches of game eats. An excellent wine with persistent tangy acidity throughout.- 2015, www.winegenius.com
