Tohu ‘Rewa’ Marlborough Methode Traditionnelle Blanc de Blanc 2014

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 16-Oct-2017
Bright straw-yellow colour, a little lighter on the edge, the bead very fine and moderately persistent. The nose is very fresh and elegant in proportion with good intensity and penetration of white stonefruit aromas, with subtle white florals, harmoniously entwined with bready-yeasty autolysis, unfolding a little toasty detail. The nose is refined in expression. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is refined with good intensity of white stonefruit and floral flavours that form a gently firm core with fresh bread and delicate yeasty autolysis notes. The palate is soft-textured with creamy mousse and a fine phenolic-threaded line and soft acidity. The wine has good drive and energy and carries smoothly to a dry finish of stonefruits and yeast. This is an elegant, classical Blanc de Blancs methode with white stonefruit and floral fruit and delicate autolysis on a fine-featured palate. Serve as an aperitif and canapes over the next 3+ years. Hand-picked clone 6 Chardonnay from the ‘Rothay’ vineyard, Rapaura, fermented in tank to 12.0% alc., and 2.25 g/L RS, the wine undergoing MLF, the wine aged 20 months on lees, and disgorged in late February 2017. 18.5/20 Oct 2017 RRP $33.95
