SA Terroir Wine Awards Top Method Cap Classique
Amorim Cap Classique Challenge Gold
National Wine Challenge / Top 100 Double Gold
The Brut Rosé MCC has an attractive light salmon pink colour and a persistent fine mousse. Ripe tropical fruit combines with lemon zest on the nose and 18 months on lees adds a rich yeasty character to this bottle fermented Cap Classique sparkling wine. The fresh acidity leaves a clean, dry finish.
Grapes were hand harvested and whole bunch pressed, resulting in a dry and crisp base wine with a low alcohol and fresh acidity. After the first fermentation, the base wine spent 6 months on the lees in stainless steel tanks before racking and stabilisation. The second fermentation took place in the bottle and aged again for another 18 months of sur lee, each bottle hand riddled, disgorged and corked.
Enjoy on its own or with summer salads, oysters and grilled fish dishes.
