For the first time in Maltese wine making history, Marsovin has produced a Méthode Traditionelle Brut Rosé sparkling wine. This special edition wine has been named 101 Brut Rosé, representing the number of years since the winery was first established.
Interestingly this wine has been produced from a blend of Malta’s indigenous grape variety Ġellewża and selected Chardonnay grapes. The winery has built a tradition in optimizing the use of the Ġellewża grape variety.
Jeremy Cassar from Marsovin commented, “As a Maltese wine producer we are proud of the result achieved, especially since it is a first for Maltese wine making history. In fact because we are so proud of the result we have decided to label the wine as a special edition wine. The name 101 represents the number of years of the family’s wine making history”.
101 Brut Rosé is made using the traditional sparkling rosé wine making method used in other regions around the Europe such as Champagne, Cava, Franciacorta and Trentino. After the first fermentation of the grape juice a process known as the assemblage takes place, this is the careful blending of the different base wines to form a cuvée which gives the desired aromas and character of the wine before undergoing secondary fermentation and further ageing in the bottle.
The ‘Méthode Traditionelle’, is a rigorous and intense process which entails at least 12 months wine maturing on the yeast lees in the bottle prior to disgorgement. This vintage 2018 is invitingly refreshing with a fine natural sparkle, a complex and elegant bouquet with lingering floral and fragrant berry notes.
101 Brut Rosé is available for sale in all leading wine retail outlets and on the website.
