Tohu ‘Rewa’ Marlborough Methode Traditionnelle Blanc de Blanc 2011

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 22-Oct-2013
Bright, very pale straw colour with light green-lemon hues, the bead fine and persistent. The bouquet is fresh and tightly concentrated with aromas of white florals and white stonefruits infused with delicate bready autolysis interest and detail. Dry to taste, this is elegant and slender expression with tightly bound white stonefruit, citrus and chalky-floral flavours. Light bread and yeast autolysis notes build to provide a refined, tight and linear profile. The mouthfeel is bright and energetic with crisp acidity and creamy effervescence, all underlined by a fine-textured phenolic thread. Some fruit sweetness and succulence carries the flavours to a slim, thirst-quenching finish with good length. This is a crisp, slender, classical Blanc de Blanc methode traditionnelle with refine flavours and mouthfeel. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood over the next 3+ years. Clone 6 Chardonnay from the ‘Rothay’ vineyard in the Rapaura district, undergoing primary fermentation with time on lees and MLF, the wine given a further 20 months on lees after tirage, the wine carrying 12.0% alc. and 5.0 g/L dosage. 17.5/20 Oct 2013 RRP $33.95
