Allan Scott Cecilia Marlborough Methode NV


It is a bit of a 'sit back away from the spotlight' bubbly.  Can't be bothered with talk so more about action. Consistently very good NZ fizz.

"Consisting predominantly of Chardonnay blended with Pinot Noir this Méthode Traditionnelle was made to exacting standards using time-honoured techniques. Adapting the Méthode Marlborough stringent criteria, it was carefully crafted from our own fine Marlborough grapes, skilfully blended, twice fermented and aged on lees for at least 18 months. A hint of yeastiness and huge acid backbone linger behind abundant wild lemon and citrus fruit aromas. This is followed by a voluptuously long-lasting and creamy finish. This wine boasts a silkily sparkling texture and fine, persistent mousse." Winery notes

“Lemon and leesy brioche moments, white peach and white strawberry. Clean, fresh, youthful and seductive. Equally fresh and delicious on the palate. Dry with flavours of preserved lemon, apple, white peach and leesy yeasty flavours moderately powerful mousse with an even small bubble. Crisp and refreshing finish. Balanced and well made. An easy choice aperitif.” Cameron Douglas – 93 Points
