2011 John Platter Wine Guide - 4 Stars
This "Methode Cap Classique" (bottle fermented sparkling wine) is a blend of red and white grapes displaying the full, balanced yeasty complexity synonymous with a wine made in this style. The wine retains its fresh racy zestiness that is a result of crisp acidity and rich fruit.
For our Tradition, slightly unripe healthy grapes are pressed very gently using a Champagne pressing program. Only the cuvee (best quality juice) is used in the blend. After blending yeast and sugar are added for a secondary fermentation in the bottle which takes about six weeks, producing CO². The sparkling wine is matured in contact with the lees for about 18 months. With age the wine softens in flavour, maintaining its sparkle, giving a fulfilling balance of age and fruit.
Tradition Brut can age for at least 3 years from date of purchase. With age the wine softens in flavour, maintaining its sparkle, giving a fulfilling balance of age and fruit. 55% Chardonnay, 33% Pinot Noir, 12% Pinotage
