Clark Estate Methode Traditionelle Sparkling Riesling 2019, Marlborough

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 10-Dec-2020
Brilliant, straw-yellow with some depth and a gold hue, even colour throughout. Very fine, persistent bubbles. The nose is soft and fresh, aromas of apple toffee, citrus melded with subtle creamy autolysis and a hint of pastry. Dry to taste, medium-light bodied, aromas of apples and pears are fresh, long with lemon and lime peels provide a taut core. Subtle creamy notes broaden the mid-palate, along with pastries and biscuits. As the wine warmed up, a fine mineral line leads the flow to a sustained flavoursome finish. The wine has a clean and focused tension with balanced acidity, fresh yet not austere, provide good energy and vibrancy. This is a vibrant and fresh Methode Traditionelle sparkling wine made from Riesling, with flavours of apple and citrus along with pastry details on a balanced, creamy palate. Match with seafood and pork over the next 3-4 years. Handpicked fruit from Upper Awatere, 12% alc, 8g/l RS. 18/20 pts (90 pts) Nov 2020 RRP $28
