Tohu ‘Rewa’ Marlborough Methode Traditionnelle Blanc de Noir 2012

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 11-May-2015
Very pale straw colour with slight green hues and a suggestion of blush, pale on rim, with a persistent, fine bead. This has a softly full and accessible nose with light and gentle aromas of yellow stonefruits, and hints of red berry fruits, delicately infused with subtle yeasty autolysis. Dryish to taste, yellow stonefruit flavours flow smoothly across an open palate, with a soft mousse enhancing the easy lusciousness. The autolytic interest is restrained and adds yeasty detail to the palate which grows in depth. The wine is guided by fine-grained phenolics that lead to a dry, moderately sustained finish with delicate fruit and yeasty nuances. This is a soft, open, yellow stonefruited Blanc de Noir method with subtle autolysis. Serve as an aperitif and with poultry and pork dishes over the next 2+ years. Clone 115 Pinot Noir from the company’s Waihopi vineyard, cool-fermented to 12.5% alc. and 6.0 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees, undergoing full MLF, followed by 20 months on lees after tirage. The wine was disgorged in August 2014. 17.0+/20 May 2015 RRP $38.95
