Description

The Quartz Reef Blanc de Blancs Methode Traditionnelle is an exceptional release, it marks itself as possibly New Zealand's greatest Methode Traditionnelle to date and is the 'crown jewel' in their sparkling collection. Winemaker Rudi Bauer was one of the first proponents of biodynamic practices and continues to be a leader in the field, his wines are as hands-off (wild fermentation, minimal intervention etc) as the they are hands-on (handpicked, hand riddled and disgorged). This very special vintage 2013 Methode Traditionnelle comprises of 91% Chardonnay, 9% Pinot Noir, with an incredible 54 months on lees (many big-brand Champagnes are only aged for 18 months) before release on September 1, 2018 - with only 4000 bottles produced.

Smells

Freshly baked brioche, orange blossom, lemon peel with nutty nuances for added complexity.

Tastes

Fine and delicate, yet creamy with great power and impressive length. This finely beaded wine is full of texture, brioche notes, citrus like acidity. There are many Champagnes more than twice the price that aren't as good. Enjoy on release to celebrate a milestone, or age for 5+ years.
