Quartz Reef Methode Traditionnelle Brut
It is quite a feat to craft a sparkling wine that captures richness within a frame of delicacy. Quartz Reef has met the brief impeccably, celebrating the power of Central Otago pinot noir (almost two-thirds of the blend) in its rich stone fruit, mixed spice and baked apple glory, then toning it with the pink grapefruit and preserved lemon notes of chardonnay. It pulls accurately into a well-balanced finish of mineral presence and taut acidity, carrying with impressive line and persistence, finishing with a refreshingly low dosage of 8g/L of sweetness. $27 at Winecave.
