NV Methode Traditionelle Brut


Home Block vineyard at our winery site on the South bank of the Waikato River. The loam soils of the site are interspersed with river gravels which creates potential for strong canopies but with good soil drainage.

Ripe fruit was gently pressed to tank and cold settled for around 48 hours prior to racking. The clear juice was inoculated and cool fermented until each parcel tasted in balance. The wine was allowed to rest on lees for around three months with lees stirring on selected tanks. Immediately prior to sending it down to Daniel Le Brun for pre bottling the wine was carefully blended, filtered and bottled.

Tasting Note
Crafted using traditional methods, this wine displays a delicate and precise bead in the glass. Rich aromas of hazelnut, toast and citrus fruit intermingle on the nose. The palate is smooth, creamy and focussed with cleansing acidity. The presence of fine mousse delivers an elegantly dry and memorable finish.

Food Matching
Great for afternoon sipping or match with fruit, cheese, salads, seafood or smoked and cured meats.
