MOUNTFORD ESTATE METHODE TRADITONALLE BLANC DE NOIR 18
Toasted hazelnut and rich aromas of gingerbread make this bone dry expression of methode traditionelle a satisfyingly rich, full bodied and flavoursome sparkling wine. This is the first sparkling wine under the Mountford Estate label and was made entirely from Pinot Noir which was aged on tirage at Mountford for an extended period of about three years.
The extended aging on lees gives it richness, depth and length of flavour.
Mountford Estate was established in 1991 by Buffy and Michael Eaton who chose the site in Waipara for its elevation and active limestone soils. The wines are made by CP Lin, who has worked in the vineyard and winery since the early days when he became a close friend of the Eatons and a devotee of this great vineyard site and region. The winery is now owned by a Japanese investor.
