DELAMERE NV CUVEE
The Non-Vintage Sparkling Cuvée is a blend of the 2010, 2011 and 2012 vintages. Both 2010 and 2012 are seen as quite classic vintages with a helpful balance of warmth, sunshine and rainfall but the addition of the fruit from the cooler year of 2011 enhances the structure of the wine bringing acidity and a taut, fine length.
As with all of our sparkling wines, the Cuvée NV is made by the traditional method with around two years lees time. The assemblage was focused on retaining the fresh fruit characteristics whilst balancing the autolytic and more mature flavours.
This wine showcases many of the elements that make a non-vintage sparkling wine so appealing. The maturity of the older wine brings a richness and depth, which combines beautifully with the fresh apple, citrus and stone fruit flavours of the younger wines. The Cuvée NV has flavours of fresh bread, nuts and leatherwood honey and a lingering and complex finish. Too good to save just for special occasions!
Sparkling wine is so much more than a wine for a toast or a party. Pair this wine with Tasmanian cheeses, marinated oysters, lightly truffled pasta or garlic and herb mushrooms on brioche.
