Soljans ‘Legacy’ Methode Traditionnelle 2012

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Other
Review Date : 14-Mar-2016
Bright, even, pale golden colour with very fine bubbles and persistent bead. The bouquet is soft and full with gently interwoven aromas of citrus and stonefruit, apples and subtle notes of bready autolysis that grow in depth and intensity to form an elegant, refined core. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is elegantly presented with fine, sweet flavours of stonefruits, citrus fruits well-balanced and integrated with bread-like autolysis. The wine follows a very fine, soft-textured line, with integrated acidity. The autolysis intensifies and is carried to a soft, poised, dry finish. This is a soft, elegant and well-balanced method traditionnelle with delicate bready autolysis. Serve as an aperitif and with white meat dishes over the next 3+ years. Hand-picked fruit, 60% Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay and 40% Marlborough Pinot Noir, cool-fermented and aged on lees for 9 months, undergoing full MLF. The wine was then given a further 3 years on full lees following tirage. The wine is 12.0% alc. and carries a dosage of 9.1 g/L RS. 18.0+/20 Mar 2016 RRP $29.50
