Who made it?
Blue Pyrenees Estate, (formerly the Chateau Remy), was founded by Remy Martin in 1963. Passionate about discovering the potential for sparkling wine in cool climate conditions, the presence of Remy Martin in Australia paved the way for the likes of Champagne Houses Moet and Chandon as well as Louis Roederer to purchase vineyards and produce wine in Australia. Set amidst the idyllic blue-hued Pyrenees range in Western Victoria, the estate was later purchased in 2002 by Chris Smales and Andrew Koerner along with a small group of Sydney businessmen who continue to craft subtle and thought provoking styles from Pyrenees fruit. True to their origins, they are still producing beautiful sparkling wines too. A happy medium between ample sunshine and cool southern ocean winds ensures Blue Pyrenees grapes ripen at moderate temperatures, yielding vibrant fruit flavours. Various soil types are found at the Estate including brown sandy loam, gravel beds, rocky quartz, sandstone and clay. This diverse range ensures a dynamic range of wines with distinct flavour profiles. The Blue Pyrenees range includes Sparkling, Varietal and Reserve ranges as well as the Richardson and Museum series.
