Morton Estate Vintage Blanc de Blanc 2000, New Zealand

Morton Estate Vintage Blanc de Blanc 2000at just $23.99 at New World, this bubbly exceeded all my expectations: brilliant, deep yellow core; fine bubbles; creamy, nutty tones; ripe stoned fruit profile. Fresh and lively. Can’t compare to my all time favourite really but then I could easily buy four bottles of this NZ bubbly instead of a bottle of Champagne. An excellent aperitif with some canapes.
