You know the drill. We would tell you who makes this excellent wine for the discerning UK market, but we'd have to shoot you first...
What we can tell you is that all the fruit for this wine came from the excellent 2016 vintage and it normally sells for just under $30 under another (much more famous) label at the winery cellar door. It was vinted entirely from Marlborough Chardonnay and it is crisp and lively in the mouth, with lovely flavours of creamy fresh citrus. Some brioche notes add complexity and palate depth.
It's hard to get good Kiwi bubbles in this price band and we are 100% confident that everyone who tries Awarua Blanc de Blanc will instantly recognise the quality in the glass. Go long. We know that you won't be disappointed.
Vinted entirely from Marlborough Chardonnay grapes, this quality Blanc de Blancs shows some creamy mouthfeel on an elegantly framed palate that is filled with fresh stonefruits and refreshing, cleansing acidity. Extended ageing on yeast lees has added some brioche characters and extra palate weight. The result is crisp, balanced and rewarding.
Sam Kim writes 91/100 " Elegantly fruited and delightfully expressed, the bouquet shows white flesh nectarine, Gala apple, lemon peel and floral characters with subtle yeasty complexity. The palate delivers excellent focus and flow, wonderfully complemented by pristine fruit flavours and bright acidity, leading to a lengthy refined finish."
Just as good as Champagne.
Perfect for summer and Christmas
