Allow us to prattle on a little more about this...

Blue Pyrenees has been around for 50 years and is pretty much the best known producer in the Pyrenees region under the guise of wine royalty, Andrew Koerner. Regular trophy and medal winners, they produce superb red, white and traditional method sparkling wines. It’s only a couple of hours from Melbourne and the scenery is spectacular. The region is also home to exceptional wineries like Dalwhinnie, Warrenmang, Summerfield, Taltarni and Mount Avoca. 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 & temperature. The results were an amazing improvement — crisper cuvée (free drained) juices of outstanding quality, with higher natural acidity. The Midnight Cuvée was born! In another first for Blue Pyrenees, during harvest 2014, handpicked Chardonnay & Pinot Noir grapes from Macedon Ridge vineyard, were whole bunch pressed, then included with the best Chardonnay parcels from the Blue Pyrenees Estate vineyard, to again lift the natural acidity & freshness of the blend.
