Lindauer ‘Classic’ ‘Brut Cuvee’ Bottle Fermented NV

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - North Island
Review Date : 05-Feb-2018
Bright, light golden-yellow colour with slight orange hues at the heart, lighter on edge, the bubbles moderately fine and the bead very vigorous. The bouquet has good depth and volume with a solidly packed core of savoury yellow stonefruits harmoniously melded with subtle, nutty aldehyde complexities and a gentle layering of yeasty autolysis. The nose has good intensity. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has up-front flavours apples and yellow stonefruits along with subtle aldehyde notes and yeasty autolytic complexities. The flavours show with good depth and presence, and the mouthfeel is fine and frothy from the effervescence, with balanced, refreshing acidity. This has good linearity, and a taut concentrated core that carries to a long stonefruited and yeasty finish. This is an up-front bottle-fermented wine with good presence of stonefruit, nutty and yeasty flavours on a balanced, creamy palate. Serve as an aperitif, with antipasto and tapas over the next 2 years. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir fruit from Gisborne and Hawke’s Bay, fermented to 12.0% alc. and 11.0 g/L dosage, the wine 16 months on lees. Lot L6350 TZ452. 17.5+/20 Feb 2018 RRP $11.99
