NV Colmant Brut Rose - 87 PTS -

"Based on the 2008 vintage, the Non-Vintage Brut Rose is a blend of 67% Pinot Noir and 33% Chardonnay with 10% of the latter fermented in French oak and aged on the lees for 24 months. Disgorged June 2010, it has a lucid deep salmon hue with a vibrant mousse. The nose is straightforward with touches of red cherry, cucumber and tomato leaf, whilst the palate has a ripe sweet entry, full and rounded in the mouth with a slightly short but fresh and lively finish.- NM"

iwinereview"One of the better South African rosé sparkling wines we tasted, the Colmant NV Brut Rosé shows beautiful balance and a finely flavored, nuanced palate of strawberry and cherry that finishes crisp and dry. It’s a blend of 67% Pinot Noir and 33% Chardonnay matured on the lees for 24 months."

vinous logo"Bright salmon-pink. Lively, fresh aromas of strawberry, raspberry, apple, spices and baked bread. Brisk but essentially supple in the mouth, with strong red berry flavors enlivened by harmonious fresh acidity. Not a particularly complex wine but juicy, vibrant, clean and very refreshing, with just a hint of toasted bread on the end. This is delicious now but should deepen with a couple more years in the bottle.- Stephen Tanzer"

"Light, elegant and refreshing, this pink MCC combines Pinot Noir with 25% Chardonnay and has attractive aromas of rose petal and rosehip backed up by a taut, racy palate of redcurrant, and raspberry fruit embellished by wood and toasty autolysis. 2021-25

wa"The beautiful NV Brut Rose has a light rosé nose with a soft lemony freshness that is almost like strawberry lemonade. There is a clear line of citrus on the palate, with a lemon-lime center on the mid-palate. The finish is precise, zippy and focused. These bubbles have serious acidity for being grown in South Africa. - Anthony Mueller"

iwinereview"Showing fresh red berry/cherry aromas with a light citrus accent, this is a most appealing sparkling rosé. It offers a lively palate with crisp acidity and a suave, creamy texture with flavors that mirror the nose. The finish is firm with lingering red berry notes. A blend of 75% Pinot Noir (10% macerated on the skins) and 25% Chardonnay with 24 months on the lees; includes 15% reserve wine and 15% barrel fermented base wine. - Don WINKLER"
