Barnsworth Chardonnay Brut Cuvee NV

Sparkling Wine from Australia - Other
Review Date : 04-Jun-2014
100% Chardonnay sparkling wine, fruit 90% from the Riverina and 5% each from Cowra and Tumbarumba, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.0% alc. and 8 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees without MLF. Bright straw-yellow colour with pale lemon-green hues, and a very fine, persistent bead. The nose is fresh. Up-front and open with soft aromas of citrus fruits, white florals and yellow stonefruits, expressed without complication. Off-dry to taste and light-bodied, a soft, creamy mouse and effervesce carries the clean and delicate flavours of citrus fruits and florals smoothly through the palate. The mouthfeel is soft and easy, with mellow acidity carrying the wine to a light-fruited finish. This is a soft, easy and accessible, fresh-fruited bubbly. Serve as an aperitif over the next 18 months. 15.5+/20 Jun 2014 RRP $16.99
