NV Dominique Portet Yarra Valley Sparkling Rose
Dominique Portet has wine running through his blood. He grew up in Bordeaux where his father was chief of the cellar at Chateau Lafite, before settling in Victoria. After running Taltarni and Clover Hill he ‘retired’ in 2000 to the Yarra Valley, making wine from his own vines. Ben, his son is in charge now and his Brut Rose is an excellent drink (ask the staff as they smashed heaps of it during our Christmas party at the winery this year). The loved the soft strawberry and cream characters and dry finish.
