The 2021 vintage release of the Blue Pyrenees Midnight Cuvée is a brilliant pale straw green with a very fine bead of persistent gentle bubbles. The aroma is delicate and complex with characteristics of freshly baked apple pie. Fresh lemon sorbet notes prevail on the front palate, followed by a soft dry creamy mid palate, then the fine minerally acid backbone drives a crisp granny smith apple finish.

Winery & Vintage Info

The production of “Methode Traditionnelle” (fermented in this bottle) sparkling wines has been an integral part of the winemaking at Blue Pyrenees Estate for many years. Although handpicked fruit is desirable for the production of premium sparkling juices, daytime temperatures in most Australian wine regions mean that hand-picked fruit is often too warm when received into the press.

So in 1992 the team at Blue Pyrenees decided to experiment with hand picking at night, under lights, to optimize both fruit condition and temperature. The results were an amazing improvement – crisper cuvee (free drained) juices of outstanding quality, with higher natural acidity. The Midnight Cuvée was born!

During harvest 2021, the best Chardonnay parcels from Blue Pyrenees Estate were blended with hand-picked grapes from the ultra cool Macedon Ridge vineyard, that were whole bunch pressed, to again lift the natural acidity and freshness of the blend.
