Tasting Notes

Huon Hooke Bronze Ribbon Top Value

 

Background

This stylish sparkling wine was made from 57% Chardonnay and 43% Pinot noir grapes from the cool King Valley in Victoria. The blended base wine matured on yeast gaining mid-palate and attractive, bready complexity. The wine is fresh and crisp, with apple, cashew and nutty flavours, and has a dry finish.


Tasting Notes

Colour
Pale straw in colour with green gold tints.

Nose
The nose is delicate and fruit driven with aromas of citrus zest and green apples and an attractive bready complexity from extended maturation on yeast lees.

Structure / Palate
The palate is crisp and fresh with green apple and cashew nut flavours. Time on lees has given the wine an attractive creamy texture on the mid palate which complements the fine line of citrus acidity leading to a refreshing, dry finish. It’s best enjoyed while fresh, say over the next 12 – 18 months.

James Halliday 2019 Wine Companion:
"A final blend at 62/38% with the wine spending 12 months on lees to build some depth, which it has with creamy, nougat flavours and mandarin peel. It has really tight, refreshing lemony-acidity then finishes dry. A bargain."
88 points. Drink to 2020.
