Quartz Reef Methode Traditionnelle Brut NV

Quartz Reef Methode Traditionnelle Brut NV

Vivacious, complex blend of pinot noir (52%) and chardonnay (48%), grown at Bendigo, in Central Otago, and disgorged after two years on its yeast lees.  Refined, toasty and crisp, with excellent tautness and length.  (Biodynamic-certified.)

Richly fragrant, creamy-textured blend of chardonnay (80%) and pinot noir (20%), grown at Bendigo, in Central Otago, and disgorged after four years on its yeast lees.  High-flavoured style, biscuity and slightly buttery, with impressive complexity and a nutty, long finish.  (Biodynamic-certified.)

My favourite Bendigo producer has really delivered a very classy wine this vintage. It is intense and subtly smooth and succulent without the flatness that dogs some other wines from this promising district. Linear, focused Pinot Noir that is beautifully structured and shows terrific ageing potential.

Aromatic Pinot Noir with a fragrant floral/red cherry aroma.

Very pure, taut and focused wine with a mix of spice, cherry and violet characters.

Finely structured with pleasantly drying, spicy tannins.

Lovely wine, linear and long.
