Allan Scott Marlborough Methode Traditionnelle Blanc de Blancs Brut NV

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 07-Jun-2013
Bright straw-yellow colour with some depth, pale on rim, with moderately fine bubble and good persistence. The bouquet is fresh with openly accessible and mellow aromatics, showing steely citrus fruit with fine lees and yeasty-bready autolysis notes and a hint of toast. Dryish to taste, fresh white stonefruit and citrus fruit flavours are expressed softly and evenly. The fruit is integrated with subtle yeast autolysis. The acidity is fresh, but the fruit sweetness and dosage provide a creaminess and approachability. Very fine textures and effervescence guide the palate to a gently crisp, delicate finish. This is a fresh and accessible Blanc de Blanc method with sweetness of fruit. Serve as an aperitif or anytime sparkling wine over the next 3 years. 100% Chardonnay from a single vineyard, fermented to 12.5% alc., the wine aged on lees for 2 years and bottled with 6 g/L rs. Lot L189-10, disgorged 6 December 2012. 17.5/20 Jun 2013 RRP $33.50
