Clark Estate Marlborough Methode Traditionnelle Sparkling Riesling 2017

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 04-Oct-2018
Bright, light golden-hued yellow colour, a little paler on the rim, the bubbles very fine with good persistence. The nose is very fresh and up-front with good volume and intensity of white stonefruits, a hint of citrus fruit and wet-stone minerals aromas and a suggestion of yeast. The minerality bestows a mouthwatering nature. Off-dry to taste, the palate is bright and lively with plenty of effervescence and mousse, the bubbles very refreshing lending a creamy flow and vibrant mouthfeel. The palate possesses a soft, but positive core of white stonefruits and florals with citrus notes and mineral nuances. This has vitality and flows with good energy to a light, fresh finish. This is a bright, lively and creamy textured method with subtle stonefruit, floral, citrus and mineral flavours. Serve as an aperitif or as an anytime wine over the next 2 years. Assessed as a method traditionnelle rather than as a sparkling Riesling. Upper Awatere Valley fruit, hand-picked and WBP, fermented in tank with no MLF, the wine undergoing secondary ferment to 12.0% alc. and 15 g/L RS, and aged 1-2 months on lees in bottle, with disgorging in November 2017. 17.0-/20 Oct 2018 RRP $28.00
