Introduced into the New Zealand market on 14 July 1999, Cuvee No. 1 is one of New Zealands most highly regarded Methode Traditionelle wines. No. 1 Cuvee was the first wine produced by No. 1 Family Estate.  It is renowned throughout New Zealand and internationally winning numerous trophies (including IWSC and Winestate), gold medals and five star awards since its release.
The wine is 100% chardonnay (blanc de blancs) – A perfect balance between ripe, fresh fruit and toasty yet creamy yeast.  The wine is held on lees for two years or more allowing the perfect level of maturity.  It  displays a fine, consistent bead and firm mousse resulting in a complex character. The palate is smooth and seamless with a wonderful balance of acidity, giving a wine of elegance and style.

We tried this on a Winesale weekend in Martinborough earlier last year so was determined to put it on the Xmas list. This is very good and if you want to impress people with a Champagne taste at a Cuvee price this is your wine. Four and a half stars if system permitted, put it on your shopping list for a wedding or other big occasion.

This sparkling wine would rate as good as any from Champagne and the boxed presentation makes it ideal for gifts or special occasions.   I rate this the best sparkling wine I have ever drunk. Harry Jewiss

A very good sparkling that almost anyone will enjoy. I don't know which I prefer this Cuvee No1 or its sibling Cuvee No 8.  Always gets good comments from those who have tried it.
