Tohu ‘Rewa’ Marlborough Methode Traditionnelle Blanc de Blanc 2012

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 11-May-2015
Bright, light golden-hued straw-yellow colour, lighter on rim, the bead moderately fine and persistent. The bouquet is very fresh, elegant and refined with tightly bound and intense aromas of white florals, white stonefruits and citrus fruits, intermixed with chalky elements and complexing bready, yeasty autolysis. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, this is elegantly presented with a tightly concentrated core of white stonefruits, florals and citrussy fruit. The fruit is entwined with chalky minerals and bready yeast with nutty elements. The palate flows smoothly with fine mousse, chalky textures and discreet acid vitality, leading to a moderately long, dry, bready finish. This is an elegant and tightly held, chalky Blanc de Blanc method with fine yeasty complexities. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood over the next 2-3+ years. Clone 6 Chardonnay fruit from the ‘Rothay’ vineyard, Rapaura, hand-picked and cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.0% alc. and 3.0 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees with full MLF, followed by 23 months on lees after tirage. The wine was disgorged in September 2014. 18.0/20 May 2015 RRP $33.95
