Man O’ War Tulia Blanc De Blancs 2015, 750ml
Tulia 2012 is a zero dosage Blanc de Blancs Methode Traditionelle wine. Fruit for the Tulia was hand harvested from some of our oldest Chardonnay vines and was very gently pressed before fermentation in old French oak barriques. The wine underwent a very long slow fermentation throughout the winter and once complete it was kept cool to prevent malolactic fermentation from occurring. After over wintering in oak the wine was then racked to tank in early summer and then filtered before bottling in March 2013 for the second fermentation, it was then disgorged after 9 months in bottle. Lifted aromas of white peach, green apple, walnut and fresh bread lead into a palate of stone fruit, citrus with subtle lees and oak complexity. The Tulia is classically styled with a backbone of acidity and a lingering grapefruit finish The Tulia 2012 is a beautiful wine best served chilled in a flute, served as an aperitif or matched with local seafood.
