Méthode Cap Classique Brut
Méthode Cap Classique (MCC) is the term used in South Africa for sparkling wine made according to the traditional method of undergoing secondary bottle fermentation. Crisp, zesty and refreshing with a delicate flavour, this MCC was made from whole-bunch pressed Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, and left on the lees (residual yeast) for 72 months.
Colour: Pale gold, lemon yellow highlights.
Bouquet: Bold baked biscuit and citrus rind with a yeasty note and faint flint nuance.
Palate: Fresh, crisp entry. Lime tang with grapefruit zest, evolving into yeasty brioche with long, textured tail.
