Winery Tasting Notes
Fresh, bright, lifted nose with toasty notes.
The palate shows strawberry and lemon with rich yeast fl avours. Elegant and well balanced with a long, lingering aftertaste.
Designed for drinking upon release, Deutz Marlborough Cuvée will nevertheless gain additional toasty nuances with careful cellaring.
An outstanding aperitif, Deutz Marlborough Cuvée is also the perfect match with canapés.
The grapes are hand-picked and whole bunch pressed in the Brancott Winery Coquard press to extract juice in the gentlest manner, yielding juice with elegance and fi nesse. Grapes from all the vineyard blocks and varieties are kept separate until they are blended prior to the second fermentation. This blending stage is the most important step in the méthode traditionnelle process. Yeast and a small amount of sugar are added to the final blend and the wine is bottled. Second fermentation lasts for about six weeks, occurring in temperature controlled warehouses. Deutz Marlborough Cuvée is aged on lees for a minimum of two to three years to impart toasty yeast flavours.
