Esses Reconnection Brut Cuvée 2018, Kaikoura

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 27-Sep-2023
Bright, even, medium yellow. Fine and vibrantly consistent bead. The nose is softly full with aromas of citrus preserve, baked apple, stonefruit, a hint of oyster shell and developed autolysis elements. Full-bodied, the palate is washed with baked apple tart, lemon preserve and peach, entwined with toasted brioche and yeasty richness. The vigorous mousse elevates the palate with freshness and presence; integrated acidity carries a slightly chalky texture to a satisfying finish. This Methode Traditionnelle is well-made with generous flavours and texture. Match with lemon chicken and roasted pork over the next 5+ years. A blend of 90% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Noir, spent 42 months on lees, 12% alc, 7.65 g/l RS. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Sep 2023 RRP $59
