Winery notes (NV)
"Cuvée No.1 was the first wine produced by No.1 Family Estate. This Blanc de Blancs was held on lees for 2 years, encouraging full yeast autolysis. The wine displays texture, finesse and charm. Typical, complex, Champagne-like characters with savoury layers of citrus and stone fruits."
5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, October 2021 (NV)
"Made from 100% chardonnay, aged on lees for two years, it’s in enticing on the nose showing nectarine, crunchy apple, lemon peel and gorgeous yeasty nuances, leading to a beautifully layered palate displaying excellent focus and drive. Wonderfully composed and styled with elegance and sophistication."
94/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, November 2020 (NV)
"Made from 100% chardonnay and held on the lees for two years. It’s a tight, elegant, toasty wine with green apple, grapefruit, brioche and toasted nut flavours. A bold, bright and perfectly balanced méthode in a crisp, dry style.
Rated Outstanding & 95/100 Cameron Douglas MS, November 2019 (NV)
"Made from 100% Chardonnay and held on lees for 2 years – the bouquet has a distinctive, fine and precise aromas of autolysis with a core of fruit, white flowers and complexity. Dry, crisp and refreshing on the palate with layers of fruit and lees, integration, finesse and youth. Destined to age for several years to come, but also delicious today. Perhaps the perfect aperitif for Summer 2020 and through 2024."
