This 100% Pinot Noir sparkling will sweep you away to a lush hillside orchard in the warm summer sun.
The bead, glimmering with a gorgeous pale rosé colour, is fine and persistent and aromas of creamy red berries surround you with hints of cherries, raspberries, wild flowers and pastries. The palate is sumptuous and lingering, with great stucture and subtle tannins.
Tasting notes from the winery for Stefano Lubiana Brut Rose 2015
Being 100% Pinot Noir, this wine shows floral notes and red berry characteristics, balanced by both the mouth-watering acidity and subtle tannins. The incredible structure and length are achieved by the Traditional Method wine making, that Steve Lubiana follows for all of his sparkling wines.
Enough fruit & sweetness to entice but with a lovely dry finish to refresh the palate. There is no mistaking the effect Pinot Noir fruit has on this wine in the absence of Chardonnay. It’s rich yet delicate and impresses with its refined hedonistic aromas and explosive, layered personalities.
A wonderful food wine with a luscious salmon pink hue, perfect for all celebrations.

Tasmania’s first and only certified biodynamic vineyard has been cultivating vines using biodynamic methods since 2010. This means that their wines are free of all synthetic treatments, additives and pesticides. Instead they travel the alternative path, stepping back in time and using cosmic rhythms to ensure soil regenereation as well as effective vine care through all phases of the year’s seasonal cycles.
Their much sought-after wines are the result of a passionate unrelenting quest for perfection. This passion, along with free thinking and attention to detail allows them to create wines which reflect this vision. Their focus on traditional and environmentally sensitive principals has only strengthened their desire to create wines that have a unique and distinctive character, with free-flowing elegance and quality.

Fine bead with good yeasty complexity and flavour . Time on lees has certainly provided a delicate but noticeable ouch of savoury autolysis too, which all adds up to some mighty fine drinking. Aromas of acacia, cherry and dried cranberry with watermelon inflection throughout. The palate has excellent layering of flavour and texture with poached quince, spiced, apple, shortbread, stone fruits and tart cranberries. Long and brisk. Cork 12.5% alc.
