Blanc de Noirs 2018
Made from the superb 2018 vintage, Balfour Blanc de Noirs is a blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier and is the newest addition to our vintage sparkling wine collection. A wine of ying and yang, the traditional ripe Blanc de Noir flavours of red apple and blackcurrant combine with linear, tangerine citrus, and oyster shell. This is a characteristically Balfour wine with wonderful tension, vibrancy and complexity.
Tasting Note: The tangerine zest leads seamlessly onto the palate. With a wonderfully intense fruit flavour. A rich and complex finish of oyster shell and lemon.
Winemaker’s Food Pairing: Roast, duck, or try with a meaty fish.
Grape Varieties: Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier
