The finest parcels of Tasmanian fruit

An exquisite sparkling wine with a soft salmon blush, has a fine persistent bead and mouth-filling mousse.  The wine displays rich flavours of strawberry and citrus with hints of brioche. A fine, crisp and textural sparkling wine, it has a superb dosage balance and persistence.

This wine is an excellent aperitif, but will also work well with light fish and meat dishes.

This limited release, Clover Hill Brut Rosé is crafted via extended skin contact of Pinot Noir to extract a soft, pink colour and reveal a highly expressive bouquet of rose petals and red strawberries. The Clover Hill 2017 Vintage Brut Rosé is crafted according to traditional methods.

Fermented in the bottle, this wine is aged on yeast lees for at least 40 months, ensuring the complexity and intensity that is the hallmark of Clover Hill Wines.
