Wrights ‘Entity’ Gisborne Methode Traditionnelle Blanc de Blanc 2010

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 01-Oct-2013
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with lemon-gold hues, pale on rim with a moderately persistent, fine bead. The bouquet is fresh and lively with aromas of chalky white stonefruits and savoury apples, along with nutty notes and subtle, bread-yeast autolysis. Dry to taste, soft and delicate flavours of white stonefruits and florals with nutty, apple and chalky mineral flavours flow on a creamy, effervescent palate. The mouthfeel is refreshing with a fine textural line, enlivened by crisp acidity. The flavours fade gently, and the wine finishes with clean, delicate nutty nuances. This dry, light and delicately flavoured Blanc de Blanc Methode has softened. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood over the next 2 years. 100% Mendoza Chardonnay fermented to 12.5% alc. with no MLF, the wine spending 2 years on lees, with no dosage. Vegan wine. Certified AsureQuality Conversion organic. 17.0/20 Sep 2013 RRP $30.00 100% Mendoza Chardonnay fermented to 12.5% alc. with no MLF, the wine spending 2 years on lees, with no dosage. Bright straw-yellow colour, pale on rim wth a fine, moderately persistent bead. The nose is full, open and up-front with aromas of apple-like fruit with aldehyde, yeast and nutty oxidative nuances, revealing white stonefruits and florals. Very dry, tight and firm, this has fulsome flavours of apples and florals intermixed with a nutty, yeasty amalgam. The palate is firm and carries a slight phenolic, textural line and crisp acidity, lending a driven, near austere line and drive with cut. The finish is dry, crisp and grainy, showing apple and yeasty hints. This is a very dry, full-flavoured sparkling wine with a firm palate line. Serve as an aperitif or with seafood over the next 3+ years. Vegan wine. Certified AsureQuality Conversion organic. 16.5/20 Nov 2012 RRP $30.00
