The production of Methode traditionelle has been an essential part of the winemaking at Blue Pyrenees for many years, the original raison d'être. Established 1963 by the Champagne houses of Charles Heidsieck and Krug, an adherence to the transcendent French influence of the founders is central. In 1992, the Blue Pyrenees team decided to experiment with hand picking their fruit, under floodlights, in the middle of the night. The results were amazing, a most memorable vintage of outstanding quality, Midnight Cuvée was born.
Although hand picked fruit is often most desirable for the production of premium quality juices, day time temperatures in Australia can mean that the grapes will often be quite warm when received into the press after a day's picking. Nowadays the Blue Pyrenees team select the best fruit parcels, whilst still on the vine, to be separated out from the rest and picked at night by hand to generate the juices which will become Midnight Cuvee. Although very laborious and time consuming, the rewards are evident in the glass. Midnight Cuvée is made entirely from estate grown fruit, predominantly Chardonnay for elegance and refinement, with a touch of Pinot Noir. Alcohol 12.5%
TASTING NOTES
Brilliant pale straw hues, a fine gentle bead. The aroma is delicate and complex, yeast autolysis characters of freshly baked bread complimented by citrus fruits and hazelnut. The bright, green apple flavoured palate exhibits a fine acid backbone which enhances the fresh doughy yeast notes and fine refreshing effervescence. A wine of great elegance, balance and finesse, a long and clean, lingering finish.

More About Blue Pyrenees Winery
The Pyrenees region of Central Victoria is the third oldest of the State's vignobles
The mountain range was named by the noted explorer and surveyor Major Thomas Mitchell, for its raw beauty and similarities to the Pyrenees in south western France, where Mitchell had served as a young Army officer. The first grower of vines for winemaking in the Avoca area was a man named MacKereth, who planted his vines in 1848. His vineyards grew to supply the thirsty miners working in the then thriving old mining industry. Blue Pyrenees»
