De La Terre Cuvée II Methode Traditionnelle 2018


Producer: De La Terre
Country: New Zealand
Region: Hawke’s Bay
Grape: Chardonnay

A crisp, fresh ‘fruit-forward’ Methode with obvious yeast notes and the minerality typical of our limestone terroir. The stylistic aim was for 3 essential elements: fresh, fruit-forward, and obvious but restrained brioche/bready notes. A strong flavour ‘attack ’showing a vibrant marriage of fruit and yeast influences. The firm and fresh acidity provides balance and persistence of flavour through to a long, clean finish.
