Tasting Notes

A rich, creamy yeasty aroma with a full, ripe toasty flavour on the palate finishing dry with a savoury aftertaste.

Food Pairing

Oysters, Creamy white cheeses, grilled white fish and Prawns, savory canap├ęs, crab stuffed mushrooms, spinach & salmon roulade.

Cellaring Notes

After a controlled 2nd fermentation in the bottle, to create the magical sparkle, an extended 3 year period of yeast contact was allowed to ensure maximum development of this exceptional sparkling wine. The balance and softer style of this Cap Classique made it possible to avoid adding dosage which means it is extra dry and ideal as an aperitif.

Vinification

Only Chardonnay grapes were used which were sourced exclusively in our own ecologically friendly vineyards. No added sulphur at any stage of the winemaking process. Whole bunches were carefully pressed. The cuvee underwent both a natural primary fermentation and natural malolactic fermentation, after which it evolved on the primary lees for a period of 6 months without the involvement of additives.
