No.1 Family Estate: No.1 Cuvée

5th May 2015

Released in 1999, No.1 Cuvée was the first wine ever produced at the No.1 Family Estate and is now one of New Zealands most highly regarded Methode Traditionelle wines.

Since it’s release it has gained recognition throughout New Zealand and the international market, winning numerous trophies (including IWSC and Winestate), gold medals and five star awards.

Winemaker: Daniel Le Brun

Tasting Notes:

The wine is 100% Chardonnay (blanc de blancs) – A perfect balance between ripe, fresh fruit and toasty yet creamy yeast.  The wine is held on lees for two years or more allowing the perfect level of maturity.  It  displays a fine, consistent bead and firm mousse resulting in a complex character.

The palate is smooth and seamless with a wonderful balance of acidity, giving a wine of elegance and style.
