No. 1 Family Estate Rosé Méthode Traditionelle NV, Marlborough

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 08-Sep-2020
Bright, even, peach-pink sunset, the bubbles are fine and moderately persistent. The nose is softly-full, elegantly presented, aromas of red berries, red florals, melded with yeasty-autolysis details and complexity. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, vibrant palate with good depth of flavours. Red berries and red florals are fresh; well-proportionally interweaved with toasty details and creamy autolysis. The palate is lively and flows with good energy along a chalky textured-line, linger harmoniously to a linear, sustained finish. This is an elegant rosé méthode traditonelle with integrated flavours of red berries, red florals, subtle toastiness on a balanced, creamy palate. Match with beef carpaccio and salmon gravlax over the next 3 years. 100% Pinot Noir, 12.5% alc, 7.5 g/l RS, 18+ months on lees, disgorged Dec 2019. 18.5+/20 pts Sept 2020 RRP $47
