No. 1 Family Estate Cuvee No.1 Methode Traditionelle NV, Marlborough

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 11-Oct-2023
Bright, even, pale straw yellow. Brilliantly persistent and fine bead. The nose is elegant and soft, with aromas of stonefruit, floral, citrus and subtle toastiness. Medium-bodied, aromas of peach and apricot entwined with lemon curd, yellow blossom and pastry hints. The wine is vibrant and youthful with zippy acidity support; subtle brioche and pastry notes entice and carry an elegant, satisfying finish. Slightly chalky fine-textured phenolics provide a silky mouthfeel. This Blanc de Blancs is youthful with elegantly layered toasty autolysis details and a fine-textured palate. Match with garlic butter prawns and chicken ballotine over the next 3 years. 99% Chardonnay, 1% Pinot Noir, 12.5% alc, 6.4g/l RS, 18 months on lees. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Oct 2023 RRP $38
