Are You Bubble Ready for Christmas?

It's that time of year when we look forward to enjoying the festive cheer and something bubbly! Whether it's for a gift, to enjoy with family on Christmas day or to pop the cork on New Year's eve you'll need to have your favourite bubbles in good supply!

 

As a specialist producer of Methode Traditionelle we've got you covered for all your bubbly requirements. We all have different tastes when it comes to wine, so it can be helpful to taste the difference between the styles if you can! If you're local to Marlborough you can pop in for a tasting at our Cellar Door - we are open 11am - 4pm daily. If you are based elsewhere we have arranged a number of tastings at retailers across Auckland, Wellington and the Lower North Island.

The structure of Chardonnay, the finesse of Pinot Noir and the softness of Meunier have been brought together for a minimum of 18 months on lees, in the classic Méthode Traditionelle style. This wine has elegance, complexity and wide appeal. Aromas of autolysis,  peach, baked apple and citrus. A fine mousse, bold acidity and flavours that reflect the nose.

 

Cuvée No.1 was the first wine produced by No.1 Family Estate. This Blanc de Blancs was held on lees for 2 years, encouraging full yeast autolysis. The wine displays texture, finesse and charm. Typical, complex, Champagne-like characters with savoury layers of citrus and stone fruits.
