NV Vouvray Methode Traditionelle

The elegance and distinctive style of sparkling Vouvray has captivated wine connoisseurs for decades. An opportunity to partner one of the leading winemaking houses in Vouvray has provided Kilikanoon with the unique ability to produce its very own.
80 year-old vines give special character to this wine, made in the same way as those of the more famous Champagne. Vouvray is one of France's oldest wine-producing regions with a history dating back to Roman times.
Appearance
Pale straw in colour with youthful green tints and a fine persistent bead
Nose
Aromas of lemons, green apples, cinnamon spices and a hint of pear combine elegantly on the nose. Subtle yeasty notes round out its appeal and provide a toasty complexity
Palate
The fresh flavours of green apples, lemon curd and cinnamon spices carry over from the nose. It's creamy mouthfeel and zesty acidity a testimony to eighteen months spent on yeast lees. It's fine mousse and persistent bead both hallmarks of a serious sparkling Vouvray
Tirage
18 months on lees in the same bottle (methode traditionelle)
Cellaring
Potential of 8 - 10 years
Pair With
Smoked salmon blinis with the freshest goats cheese, or just pour yourself a glass, sit back and enjoy!
