2016 Methode Traditionnelle Blanc deBlanc
100% Chardonnay from Gisborne. Bright, light golden-straw colour, lighter on edge, with a moderately persistent fine bead. The nose is fresh with ripe yellow floral and light citrus fruit aromas along with breads and yeast,hints of nuts and toast interwoven with the fruit. Dry with moderate mousse, rich,firm flavours of white and yellow stonefruits form a deep core, with complexcitrus, bread and nutty elements. This is a fulsome Blanc de Blanc with the potential to develop even more over the next 4-5+ years. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood. Read the review here.
