Antucura Cherie Sparkling NV

Tasting Notes

Present salmon tones, small bubbles and persistent care speak of their preparation. Captivating nose for perfect combination of aromas of yeast, toast, candied fruits and white flowers. The palate is intense, fresh and balanced acidity.

Awards/Reviews

90 pts James Suckling
A rosé with plenty of dried fruit character and lemon undertones. Full body, bright acidity and a firm and lively finish. Excellent body. Drink now.

Strawberry, field grass and creamy, lactic aromas feed into a bright palate with ripe but short flavors of melon and spiced apple. This is dry and dusty on the finish, with fresh acidity and a touch of powdered sugar flavor.

Winemaker Notes

Grapes for this wine were picked by hand and then table sorted. Vineyards are closely planted with roughly 5500 plants per acre, which sees the vines struggle against one another for nourishment this reduces vine vigor and and crop size and in turn concentrates the fruit. To produce this wine, they allow minimal skin contact (4 hours approx.) at 37°F. to get a pale pink color, and then grapes are basket pressed to ferment the juice without skin contact, at 64°F, thus ensuring the natural freshness and acidity of an elegant Pinot Noir. The sparkling wine processing is done off site in a dedicated sparkling wine producing winery. In Argentina, you may not produce still wines and sparkling wines in the same facility. The charmant method is used for this, with a keen focus on controlling the aggressiveness of the bead they look for a very delicate, yet persistent bead for this wine.
