The Wooing Tree - Blondie (Blanc de Noirs) 2011New Zealand White Wine
This unique Blanc de Noir was made from 100% Pinot noir grapes, grown on the family owned vineyard. Ripe hand picked fruit and gentle winemaking have given a wonderfully balanced wine.
The elegant Champagne colour resulted from minimal skin contact prior to a gentle whole bunch press. The juice was fermented in stainless steel to retain the varietal and fruit characteristics.
The wine shows delightful aromas of peaches and cream, with stone fruit, pink grapefruit and a hint of honey on the palate. Best served slightly chilled.
