No. 1 Family Estate Cuvée Méthode Traditionelle Blanc de Blancs NV, Marlborough

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 08-Sep-2020
Bright, lemon with some depth. Bubbles are fine and persistence. The nose is elegantly voluminous, nuances of stonefruit, lemon sherbet, custard pastry, underlying subtle nuttiness. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, the palate is elegantly presented, a concentrated core of peaches, lemon sherbet is with good flavour intensity, broaden by creamy custard and pastry elements, linger to a linear finish. The mouthfeel is filled with creamy mousse and lees ageing details, enriched by subtle nutty notes. The wine flows seamlessly with good energy and bright acidity, in harmony with a small dose of sugar sweetness. This is a poised and refined, Blanc de Blancs style méthode traditionelle with flavours of peaches and lemon sherbet, creamy custard and nuts in harmony on a seamless flow. Match with prawn cocktails and crayfish over the next 3-4 years. 100% Chardonnay, 12% alc. Ages on lees for two years, 6.3 g/l RS. 18.5+/20 pts Sept 2020 RRP $36
