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

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONSTrellised 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.
WINEMAKINGGrapes 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.
