Allan Scott ‘Sasa’ Marlborough Methode Traditionnelle Brut 2009

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 07-Jun-2013
Named after Sara Scott and released in time for her 30th birthday. 100% Chardonnay fermented to 12.5% alc., the wine undergoing MLF and aged on lees 3 years, and bottled with 9.5 g/L rs. Lot L269.01, disgorged 17 September 2012. Bright, pale straw colour with slight green hues, pale on edge and youthful in appearance. The bubbles are small and moderately persistent. The bouquet is elegant and penetrating with pure aromas of white stonefruits along with a subtle amalgam of nuts and bread. The aromatics are tight, steely and concentrated. Dry to taste, the palate is tightly bound, very fine and crisply refreshing, showing white florals and nutty flavours with excellent clarity. The palate has delicacy, refined mousse and fine textures, enlivened by lacy, near-racy acidity, providing excellent cut and linearity. The flavours lead to a lively and lingering finish with bready, nutty notes. This is a tightly bound, refreshingly penetrating Blanc de Blancs method traditionnelle with purity ant cut. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood over the next 3-4+ years. 18.0/20 Jun 2013 RRP $44.00
