Johanneshof Marlborough Methode Traditionnelle Blanc de Noirs Brut NV

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 02-Nov-2017
Bright straw-yellow colour with faint blush on golden hues at heart, and a fine, persistent bead. Soft and broad on bouquet, with good volume and depth, this has ripe yellow stonefruit aromas intermixed with savoury, nutty elements and bready autolysis in a classical Pinot Noir style. Dry to taste, the palate is mouthfilling and up-front with densely packed flavours of nuts and savoury yellow fruits interwoven with bready, yeasty interest. The mouthfeel is soft with gentle mousse and balanced acidity. The textures show fine phenolic handling, and the flavours lead to a dry, lightly nuanced finish with quenching acid zing and freshness. This is a dry, up-front, savoury Pinot Noir method traditionnelle to serve with antipasto and white meat courses over the next 3+ years. Made from hand-picked Pinot Noir, fermented and aged in French oak. Aged on lees 6 years. 11.5% alc. and 4 g/L dosage. Lot L3394. 17.5+/20 May 2013 RRP $38.00
