Colmant Brut Rose
Colmant Cap Classique & Champagne
South Africa - Western Cape - Coastal Region - Franschhoek

Lovely salmon pink color. A very delicate nose of strawberry and redcurrant fruit with floral undertones. There is a silky richness on the palate full of red berries balanced with a subtle bready texture. Very accessible. Will also develop nicely over time.

vinous logo"The Brut Rosé (disgorged March 2018) is a blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay with 15% base wine and 15% reserve wine, with the Pinot Noir macerated on its skins for color, matured on the lees for 24 months. Deep salmon in color, it has a fine mousse and attractive strawberry and cherry scents on the nose - no shy and retiring rosé here. The palate is well balanced with Braeburn apples, hints of strawberry and a touch of tart cherries fanning out toward the creamy-textured, satisfying finish. A sparkling rosé that’s proud to be pink!- Neal Martin"

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"

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"

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."

"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"
