No.1 Cuvée was the first wine produced by No.1 Family Estate. It is renowned throughout New Zealand and is winner of multiple International Trophies, Gold Medals and Five Star Awards since its release in 1999.
Made from 100% Chardonnay, this Blanc de Blancs was held on lees for 2 years, encouraging full yeast autolysis. The resulting wine displays typical, complex, champagne-like characters.
