Cloudy Bay Pelorus Sparkling Brut NV
|REGION||Marlborough, New Zealand
Pelorus is the definitive New Zealand sparkling wine, and has been since 1987. Crafted using the time-honoured méthode traditionnelle, Pelorus is widely acclaimed for its elegance, finesse and complexity. Its deliciously crisp and balanced flavours make it the perfect bottle for any occasion.
Pelorus is crisp and balanced. The pale straw colour and aromas of ripe citrus hint at its Chardonnay origins.
On the nose, a bouquet of apple and lemon complements the aromas of fresh bread, drawn from two years’ bottle ageing on lees.
The palate is toasty, creamy and complex, enhanced further by the lingering, nutty finish.
