Grape: 53%Chardonnay, 47%Pinot Noir. Region: South Africa> Western Cape. Notes: Methode Champenois. Minimum intervention farming.
Description: An all round crowd pleaser and extremely versatile bubbly crafted from a selection of the classic Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. It was the celebratory drink of choice both at Nelson Mandela’s inauguration and Barack Obama’s presidential win. After the settling of the juice the two varieties are fermented separately. They are then cross-blended along with reserve wine if necessary, bottled and matured for 15 to 18 months yeast contact time before disgorgement. Light yeasty aromas and secondary tones of limey fresh fruit on the nose with rich creamy complexity on the palate. The exceptionally fine mousse contributes freshness and finesse.
Food pairing: Aperitif, and great with almost any food, etc.
