No. 1 Family Estate ‘Cuvee No. 1 Rosé’ Marlborough Methode Traditionnelle NV

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 04-Jan-2018
Bright, salmon peach-pink colour with some depth, a little lighter on the rim, the bubbles very fine, with a moderately persistent bead. The nose is soft with gently full aromas of strawberry fruit entwined with savoury red berry fruit and a fine thread of bready autolysis in the background. The nose has an elegantly deep core with a steely, minerally freshness. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has restrained flavours of mouthwatering red berry and floral notes, savoury strawberries, and a fine, delicate underlay of bready autolysis. The mouthfeel is fresh with creamy effervescence and zesty acidity, and the wine carries with good tension along a refined textured line leading to a delicate, red berry-=fruited finish. This is an elegant, restrained, mouthwatering rosé method traditionnelle with red floral, berry and strawberry flavours and fine background autolysis notes. Serve as an aperitif, with canapés and antipasto over the next 3 years. Clone 10/5 Pinot Noir fruit from Rapaura, hand-picked and fermented in tank undergoing MLF and spending 9 months on lees before tirage, then a further 20 months on lees in bottle. This is 13.0% alc. and has 5.2 g/L dosage. Lot L15275. 17.5+/20 Jan 2018 RRP $45.00
