Quartz-Reef-Sparkling-2010Quartz Reef 2010 Methode Traditionnelle, Central Otago NZD $45

A blend of Chardonnay (93%) and Pinot Noir with 45 months en tirage. Taut, pure wine with an ethereal texture and subtle toast/brioche yeast lees characters. Long and linear Méthode. Very impressive by any measure. (Cork)
