Deutz Marlborough Cuvee Brut

Expert Reviews

James Halliday says
Pale straw-pink; a complex, dry bready/yeasty autolysed bouquet leads on to a firm, complex palate with a mix of strawberry and biscuity flavours, and an apparently dry finish which enormously adds to the appeal of the wine.

Matt Skinner says
Combining top-drawer New Zealand fruit with nearly two centuries of champagne know-how, Deutz Marlborough Cuvee continues to raise eyebrows and drop jaws thanks to plenty of substance and style, plus a seriously attractive price tag. This is a champagne look-alike: smells of citrus fruit, toast, honey and spice are all present on the nose, while in your mouth it's broad, rich and creamy with plenty of tiny bubbles, cleansing acidity and a clean, drying finish. Beer-battered fish and chips make for a great match here.

Australian Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine says
Developed with the help of Champagne Deutz, this wine got off to a flying start and has steadily grown in stature ever since. Made from an undisclosed, but I suspect fairly equal, blend of chardonnay and pinot noir plus a small amount of pinot meunier, the wine was given two to three years on lees before being disgorged. Residual sugar is 12 grams per litre. It has strong chocolate box, toast and bran biscuit characters with subtle crushed strawberry fruit flavours. A silken-textured and reasonably weighty wine with a lengthy finish.
