Huia Blanc de Blancs 2017
Appreciated by most Traditional Method Organic Wine drinkers.
This wine has a subtle golden straw colour. On the nose has fresh lemon zest and biscuit and fresh baked sourdough. On the Palate has a light lemon flesh and white peach character a fresh a crisp mouth feel with a creamy dry finish.
A sparkling wine made in the traditional method. The grapes were hand-picked and whole bunch pressed. Then the juice was racked off to barrels for fermentation. A warm, fast ferment was encouraged. Base wines underwent full malolactic fermentation and were aged on gross lees in old French oak. Secondary yeast fermentation was conducted in the bottle and was aged on the yeast lees for 32 months. The bottles were hand-riddled over 5 weeks.
This wine would pair beautifully as an aperitif with some roasted almonds or a creamy camembert. And would fantastically match a nicely cooked fish and chips.
