Tasting Notes:

Lively fine mousse. Bright and zesty lemon aromas tinged with subtle oyster shell and sour dough bread yeastiness, limestone and a faint hint of caramel. Similar refreshing exuberance in the mouth with lively fresh, lemon zest and grapefruit pith flavours balanced by a rich, rounded, toasty yeast element.The bubbly is tangy and vibrant while taut and focussed with a long, lingering sour dough aftertaste.

The origin of the fruit is from our vineyards situated in Darling and Elandskloof and the soils constitute decomposed shale and granite. Harvesting began on the 17th of January and ended on the 22nd of February 2012.

After fermentation the bottles are kept for 4 years at 14°C. The wines are then disgorged and kept under cork for at least 3 months before being released.

Grapes are received in bins or lug boxes early in the morning. All of the grapes (Chardonnay) are whole-bunch pressed. The free run and second press-juice portions are kept separate. After the juice has settled, it is racked off the lees. Fermentation takes place after yeast inoculation. About 20% of the Blanc de Blancs is barrel-fermented. After fermentation, the base wine is settled and then racked off the lees. Blending of the cuvée takes place after 12 weeks. Wine is then cold stabilised. After this the cuvée is bottled for second fermentation at 13 - 15°C. 

Food pairing

Grilled prawn salad, sushi, chocolate-dipped strawberries.
