Special occasions deserve a special bubbles! No. 1 Family Estate "Adele Cuvee" 2013, Marlborough NZ – An amazing Methode Traditionelle from Daniel & Adele Le Brun – Made from hand picked and whole bunch pressed grapes (80% Chardonnay & 20% Pinot Noir.) Soft pale lemon in colour with a very tiny persistant bead. Beautiful floral nose of peach & lemon citrus, underpinned with brioche / yeasty aromas. Bone dry fruit-driven palate with nectarine, peach & citrus flavours, crisp acidity, creaminess mouthfeel, and a long intense dry finish! Just stunning. Thank you so much! Perfect! 12.5% ABV Residual Sugar: 8g/L Total Acidity: 8.6g/L PH: 3.15 RRP:$240.00 (Limited release) https://www.no1familyestate.co.nz/our-wine #nzwine #méthodetraditionelle #chardonnay #pinotnoir #marlborough #no1familyestatewines #specialoccasion
