Rock Ferry Brut Pinot Blanc 2021, Marlborough

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 24-Jan-2024
Bright, even, pale yellow. Fine and consistent bead. The nose is elegantly fresh, with aromas of apple, pear, pastry, citrus and yeasty autolysis. Medium-full bodied, aromas of apple and pear tart entwined with lemon sorbet and peels, unveiling a creamy layer and subtle white pepper dusting on the finish. The fruit is vibrant and youthful, packed with freshness, complexed by delicate pastry notes and a creamy veil. Enlivening acidity carries a lengthy, crisp closing. Match with ceviche and prawns over the next 3+ years. Fruit from Orchard vineyard in Rapaura, Wairau Plains, handpicked, whole bunch pressed, fermented in stainless steel, left on lees and underwent MLF in spring; after 11 months, the wine was tirage bottled then aged on lees for 18 months. Certified organic and vegan friendly. 18+/20 pts (91 pts) Jan 2024
