Tohu ‘Rewa’ Marlborough Methode Traditionnelle Blanc de Blanc 2009

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 02-Jun-2011
Pale straw-yellow with a pale edge this has a very fine bead with moderate persistence. The bouquet is very fresh and quite elegant, with delicate aromas white florals, citrus fruits, very subtle yeasty-biscuity autolysis and some definite spicy oak notes. A dry and elegant sparkling wine with some delicacy, the flavours of citrus fruits, flowers and apples have a subtle sweetness and lusciousness. Oak elements show, and autolysis is very restrained. The fine mousse and good acidity contribute to a wine that is refined in texture. It will suit being served as an aperitif or with antipasto over the next 3-4 years. 100% Chardonnay from the Rapaura region, the primary fermentation in stainless-steel with partial malo conversion, the wine then aged on lees in old French barriques for 9 months. Following secondary fermentation, the wine was aged 12 months on lees. 12.0% alc. with a dosage of 5 g/L rs. 17.0-/20 May 2011 RRP $29.90
