Personalised Clover Hill Tasmanian Cuvee NV 12.5% 750ml
Personalised Clover Hill Tasmanian CuvÃ©e NV 12.5% 750ml
The Clover Hill Tasmanian CuvÃ©e NV is made from grapes sourced from Clover Hill's vineyards in Tasmania, an assemblage of three main vintages to deliver freshness and ageing complexity in the same glass. It has undergone partial malolactic fermentation to soften the crisp natural acidity.
James Halliday- 94 Points, MÃ©thode traditionnelle. The base vintage of '17 was a blend of 59% chardonnay, 37% pinot noir and 4% pinot meunier, traditional method but no info on the date of disgorgement. It has particularly good balance and mouthfeel, creamy/toasty/nutty notes all present. The colour is still primary pink with just a hint of salmon. It has the lowest residual sugar of all the Clover Hill wines, the bracing acidity of 9.7g/l more than just a match. It's a stylish, bright and breezy wine and will surely coast along in bottle.
