Sparkling Blend 2018 – Black Market Deal #2123
- Crisp, fine
We already know that this producer has mastered chardonnay and pinot noir. So naturally, you’d expect that they could nail a 50/50 sparkling blend of the two varieties using the traditional method. After three years on lees, this is oozing with complexity, notably with hints of mandarin, nectarine, white flowers, nuts and baked bread. The bead is quite delicate, the palate creamy, and there’s a touch of salinity that makes a pairing with oysters just way too easy.

Anyone who's ever tried Martinborough pinot noir will shout its praises from the rooftop... at least, anyone who's not a Marlborough diehard. There seems to be a nice rivalry in the pinot stakes between the two regions, with Martinborough producing more structural (some would say "Burgundian") styles, as opposed to Marlborough's fruity flavour fests. If you see one, nab it. Also keep an eye out for the aromatic whites.
