A MASSIVE STAFF FAVOURITE.
FIVE STARS 94/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
We have to admit to being slightly obsessed with Blondie over the years. It's been a staple for us at any occasion!
A unique Blanc de Noir made from 100% Pinot Noir. The elegant champagne colour is a result of minimal skin contact prior to a gentle whole bunch press.
The wine shows delightful aromas and flavours of white peach and nectarines, with hints of dried lavender and potpourri. Served slightly chilled. Truly delicious.
Sam Kim writes "The wine is delightfully expressed and fragrant on the nose showing Gala apple, nectarine, lemon peel and floral characters. The palate delivers lovely fruit purity and intensity backed by fine texture and crisp acidity, finishing zesty and lingering. At its best: now to 2021."
The winery writes "This unique Blanc de Noir was made from 100% Pinot noir grapes, grown on our family owned vineyard. Ripe hand picked fruit and gentle winemaking have given a wonderfully balanced wine. The elegant champagne colour resulted from minimal skin contact prior to a gentle whole bunch press. The juice was fermented in stainless steel to retain the varietal and fruit characteristics. The wine shows delightful aromas of stone fruit, pear, orange zest and jasmine with white peach, apricot and a touch of honey on the palate. Best served slightly chilled."
