Morton Estate Methode Traditionnelle Blanc de Noirs 2005

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 06-Nov-2011
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with golden hues and a pale edge. The bead is fine and moderately persistent. Full, open and fruit expressive on bouquet, there are soft tropical fruit and nutty aromas with complex ethereal floral and autolyis elements. Dry on palate, this is soft, full, and delicate with restrained flavours of yellow stonefruits, nuts, tropical fruits and bready yeast. There is a richness and ripeness that exudes a subtle generosity, while the lively, fine effervescence provides freshness and finesse. This is a fine featured, but subtly layered wine that will become more flavoursome over the next 2-4 years. Serve with antipasto, seafood and poultry. 54% Pinot Noir, 44% Pinot Meunier and 2% Chardonnay, the fruit 77% from Hawke's Bay and 23% from Marlborough, fermented to 12.0% alc. and carrying 7 g/L dosage, the wine aged on lees over 5 years.
