Matahiwi Hawke’s Bay Blanc de Blanc NV

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 23-Jan-2018
Bright, even, light straw-yellow colour, a littler lighter on the edge, the bubbles moderately fine and persistent. The nose is soft and light in expression with gentle aromas of white stonefruits and white florals melded with very gentle but mouthwatering wet-stone and mineral notes, and suggestions of nuts at the core, unfolding hints of bread and yeast. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has soft, light flavours of white stonefruits, citrus fruits and white florals with hints of yeast and minerals. The mouthfeel is creamy with good effervescence, and balanced by fine, crisp acidity. The wine flows with good energy to a light finish. This is a soft, creamy sparkling wine with light stonefruit, floral and citrus flavours and hints of nuts and yeast. Serve as an aperitif over the next 2 years. A Charmat wine. 100% Chardonnay from the Dartmoor district, all from the 2017 vintage, fermented to 13.0% alc. and 9 g/L dosage, the wine aged 7 months on lees. Lot L7525. 16.5/20 Jan 2018 RRP $21.99
