Morton Estate ‘Blanc de Blanc’ Methode Traditionnelle 2000

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 01-Aug-2011
Brilliant straw-golden colour with a pale edge, the bead is a little light. The bouquet is full and very intense, with a complex and integrated amalgam of oxidative, nutty, bread-like aromas. Dry to taste, the complexity of flavour is the feature. Smooth, harmonious lemon-citrus, bready-biscuity autolysis with secondary nutty, oxidative and aldehydic elements combine to fill the palate. The wine is soft, and the mousse a little faded, with some sweetness providing subtle richnesss. Acidity carries through to a sustained finish. 100% Chardonnay fruit from Marlborough fermented to 12.6% alc., with a dosage of 8 g/L rs, the wine spent 7 years on lees. A powerful sparkling wine that will match nutty-flavoured food, poultry and seafood over the next 3-4+ years. 18.5/20 RRP $28.50
