Johanneshof Marlborough Methode Traditionnelle Blanc de Blancs Brut 2008

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 23-May-2014
Bright, lemon-hued straw-yellow colour, lighter on rim with moderately persistent and fine bubbles. This has a very refined and delicate bouquet of white florals and stonefruuits integrated with subtle yeast autolysis. This has freshness, focus and finesse. Dryish to taste, the palate features very elegant and subtle citrus fruit, stonefruit and floral flavours integrated with delicate bready yeast, nuts and toasty nuances. The mouthfeel is soft, smooth and creamy with very fine effervescence and textures, along with soft acidity resulting in good harmony and balance. The wine follows a very refined line, revealing some sweetness, leading to a dry, slightly textured finish. This is an elegant and harmonious Blanc de Blancs method traditionnelle. Serve as an aperitif over the next 3-4 years. Hand-picked Chardonnay fruit fermented to 12.5% alc. and 9 g/L dosage, the wine spending 5 years and 3 months on lees. Lot L0903. 17.5/20 May 2014 RRP $38.00
