Sophora Sparkling Cuvée

20140330-153757.jpgLCBO#: 353656
Price: $19.95
Made in: Aukland, New Zealand
By: Lion Nathan Wine Group

This Sparkling from New Zealand is blended from Chardonnay (52%) and Pinot Noir (48%) grapes. Colour is a little darker than usual with a nice creamy head. Big aromas of apples with hints of vinegar. Things calm down eventually and very light vanilla comes to caress the apples. The taste is a little sour, but mixed with some sweetness. Body seems a little too thick overall, but a little dryness just comes and saves the syrupy mouthfeel. A stronger all-around Sparkling with nothing offensive, but just lacking a bit of balance. Recommended to those who like lots of fruits (apples, grapes) and less dry.
