CLOVER HILL CUVÉE ROSÉ WINS THE PERPETUAL TROPHY & BLUE GOLD
At the 2017 Sydney International Wine Competition
It’s an award-winning day for Cuvée rosé
The 2017 Sydney International Wine Competition has awarded Clover Hill NV Cuvée Rosé the Perpetual Trophy for the BEST Australian Sparkling Wine – Aperitif Style, in addition to the Blue Gold Medal.
The Sydney International Wine Competition is now in its 37th year, and still the only international wine show that judges all its finalists in combination with appropriate food.
The Clover Hill NV Tasmanian Cuvée Rosé is crafted according to traditional methods. Fermented in the bottle, this wine is aged on yeast lees for a minimum of two years which, in addition to a careful dosage of Tasmanian pinot noir ensures the premium quality that is the hallmark of Clover Hill.
“Salmon pick – looks very pretty in the glass. DMS and slightly dirty nose – enough artefact and ferment esters to get away with it. Compelling structure with driving acid, bready autolysis and a goes balance of primary fruit to keep the wine fresh and interesting. Good wine. With food – terrific. Acid really works and length of palate comes into lay nicely. Compelling..” Mark Robertson
