John's Wine of the Week : Runner Duck Joy Methode Traditionelle NV

27 July 2017

This is a "fermented in the bottle" Sparkling Cremant made of Cabernet France. After being pressed off skin, the base cuvees of three different vintages have been fermented, clarified and racked before being aged and then blended. With the addition of some sugar and Champagne yeast to create the Liquer de Triage" the wine was then fermented for the second time on crown seal for 3 weeks. The wine has then spent two and half years on lees before disgorgement has this has added depth an complexity from yeast Autolysis. A dry sparkling wine with a very fine and persistent bead, it has the faintest hint of pink in color. Faint aromas of raspberry and cherry blossom on the nose and a hint of breadiness. On the palate it is classically full with white peach, raspberry and nectarine intertwined with toast, brioche and savory meal. It's a complex refined and delicious sparkling wine perfect as an aperitif or paired with Crayfish, Crabmeat or Sushimi. It is only available at the Restaurant to buy on the Matakana Coastal Getaway Tour NZ$40 bottle
