Lindauer ‘Special Reserve’ ‘Cuvee Riche’ Bottle Fermented NV

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - North Island
Review Date : 05-Feb-2018
Light, orange-peach colour with some depth, pale edged, the bubbles moderately fine and the bead vigorous. The bouquet is elegantly proportioned with refined, intense aromas of yellow stonefruits indicating Pinot Noir, along with apple notes, and delicate aldehyde and nutty nuances with a fine line of bready, yeasty autolysis. Medium-sweet to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has stylish flavours of yellow stonefruits and apples, along with honied notes and harmoniously melded nutty and yeasty elements. The mouthfeel is creamy and finely textured, with good mousse and liveliness. The wine flows along a light-textured line, leading to a fresh, gently sweet finish. This is a harmonious, gently sweet bottle-fermented wine with stonefruit and honied flavours along with nutty and yeasty notes. Serve as an aperitif and with fruit over the next 2 years. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay fruit from Hawke’s Bay and Gisborne, fermented to 12.0% alc. and 48 g/L dosage, the wine at least 30 months on lees. Lot L7061 TZ531. 18.0/020 Feb 2018 RRP $14.99
