Emperor Méthode Traditionnelle
This beautifully bottle-aged Méthode Traditionnelle has captured Central Otago.
Aromatics are wild herbs, honeycomb, and biscuit yeast autolysis characters. The palate is well-balanced with lemon, pineapple building to a creamy mid-palate, and tapering off to an elegant finish which simply exudes finesse.
Like all great sparkling wines, the Emperor will perfectly match scallops, crayfish, or whitebait.
The Real Review / 95 Stars / Top Rank / No.1 Non-Vintage Chardonnay Méthode from New Zealand
”Very attractive Méthode made from 100% chardonnay. The wine has a deliciously ethereal texture with pronounced bready yeast autolysis, grapefruit, citrus, toast and cashew nut flavours. Further evidence that Central Otago might be New Zealand’s answer to Champagne.” Bob Campbell
