Méthode Cap Classique Brut 2018

Made in the traditional French style, these wines express the grape varietals, the vintage and terroir.


With its exuberant bubbles and golden hue, this deliciously dry Cap Classique Brut is a must for any celebration, big or small. Begin proceedings on a high note with this as your welcome drink, use it for toasts, or enjoy it with a lavish breakfast. (We rather like it with oysters, too!)

Made in the traditional French style with a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes fermented in the bottle. 

TASTING NOTE
The wine’s fresh, clean nose offers aromas of apples and citrus. A balanced mouthfeel, good acidity and exuberant bubbles culminate in a lively aftertaste.

WINEMAKING

WINEMAKER
Heidi Dietstein

ORIGIN
Stellenbosch

TERROIR / SOIL
Escourt and Glen Rosa

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS
Trellised vines with an average age of 17 years yielded the grapes for this wine, at an average of 8 tonnes per hectare. The vineyards received supplementary drip irrigation.

WINEMAKING
Grapes from three selected vineyard blocks were hand-harvested between 18° and 19.5°B using 9kg lug boxes. The grapes were whole bunch-pressed after sorting by hand. 90% of the juice was fermented in stainless-steel tanks and 10% in old 400L French oak barrels. Secondary fermentation took place in the bottle. After the completion of the secondary fermentation, the wine spent 23 months on the lees prior to disgorging.
