Koyama Methode Traditionelle Brut Nature NV

$45.00 inc. GST

“A delicious bone-dry pinot noir-dominant blend made in tiny quantities by Takahiro Koyama, in which rich notes of gingerbread and toasted breadcrust are counterpoised by a powerful line of lemony acidity. Koyama has had a growing focus on sparkling wine with his original label and at Mountford Estate, which he now also runs, and this is a fine addition to Aotearoa’s sparkling scene.” – Jo Burzynska, NZ Herald Viva

Tasting Note: The nose suggests almond and hazelnut praline, with citrus and struck flint undertones. Two years of lees ageing give the palate weight, which is balanced by the crisp, bone-dry structure of this zero-dosage release. Produced in minuscule quantities, and very expensively, Koyama’s methode releases are true gems and showcase thoughtful, delicate winemaking skill.
