Tohu ‘Rewa’ Marlborough Methode Traditionnelle Blanc de Blancs 2015

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 29-Sep-2018
Bright, lemon-hued straw-yellow colour with some depth, lighter on the rim, the bubbles fine and persistent. The nose is refined and elegant with very good intensity and penetration, showing white florals and stonefruits and subtle citrus fruit nuances, and a fine thread of bready-yeasty autolysis with a little mouthwatering minerality. This is taut and youthfully bound. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is tightly bound and refined in expression with a taut core of white stonefruits and florals, subtle bready-yeasty autolysis providing a complexing line. The mouthfeel is bright and lively with creamy effervescence and a mouthwatering mouthfeel from the crisp acidity. The flavours recede a little as the wine leads to a delicate finish. This is a crisp, taut and refined blanc de blancs methode traditionnelle with floral and stonefruit flavours and delicate autolysis on a thirst-quenching palate. Serve as an aperitif, with canapés and seafood over the next 3 years. 100% Chardonnay fruit from Rapaura, fermented in tank with 12 months on lees and MLF to 12.0% alc. and 6.2 g/L RS, the wine aged 27 months on lees with disgorgement in June 2018. 18.0+/20 Oct 2018 RRP $30.55
