Spade Oak Gisborne Methode Traditionnelle Blanc de Blancs NV

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 18-Jan-2018
Bright straw-yellow colour with pale lemon-gold hues and some depth, the bubbles moderately fine an persistent. The bouquet is very fresh and vibrant with fragrant aromas of white stonefruits and florals harmoniously entwined with a very fine and intense thread of yeasty autolysis. This is refreshing and mouthwatering, showing purity, taut intensity and finesse. Dry to taste, the palate is elegant and tightly bound with a pure and fresh core of thirst-quenching white stonefruits and aromatic florals, with gentle yeast autolysis. The flavours are vibrant in expression with bright, lacy acidity and fine mousse, all underlined by fine phenolic textures lending a dry, mouthwatering line. The wine carries to a fresh, lingering, nuanced finish. This is a taut, refined, pure Blanc de Blancs method traditionnelle with white stonefruit and florals, and a thirst-quenching core guided by fine textures and fresh acidity. Serve as an ateritif over the next 3-4 years. 100% hand-picked Mendosa fruit from the ‘Ashwood’ estate, from the 2016 vintage, primary fermented in 2.500 L oak cuve with 100% MLF, the wine aged 12 months on lees and dosage by 2.7% 2012 ‘Vigneron’ Chardonnay wine to 8 g/L RS.
