Medot – Brut Cuvée – Gold Creamy
15th December 2017
Congratulations to Medot with their Brut Cuvée which received a Gold medal at The World’s Finest Glass of Bubbly awards 2017.
A panel of 36 top industry wine judges tasted all the entries for 2017 and were able to not only scores wines with medals, but also place them in to easy to understand categories such as Creamy: “A soft rounded wine, almost reminds you of biscuity / brioche in aroma and taste.”
“The wine tradition of the Simčič family goes back to 1812. Throughout the decades, his links to the vines and the wine grew and consolidated, while in the 1990’s Miro Simčič founded the present trademark Medot on the basis of the family’s knowledge.”
Colour: Light gold with green shades
Appearance: Small, subtle bubbles are vivacious and energetic. Yellow-green and golden – the mixture of freshness and maturity is apparent at first sight.
Aroma: Multidimensional. It reveals a fruity character and the beauty of long ageing on fine lees. We can perceive toasted bread, croissants and cream, but also apple, lemon and honey tones.
Flavour: Elegant sparkling wine with an intense flavour of the local minerals and fine texture. Citrus peel and strawberry flavours are supported by the toasted bread. Rich ending and long aftertaste.
Recommended dishes: Medot Brut Cuvée has an elegant character and combines well with vegetable dishes, seafood, lobster, prosciutto, pasta or risottos in a creamy sauce, beef carpaccio, hard cheese and fruit pies.
