Wine of origin
Alc/Vol 11.5% | pH 3.47 | R.S. 3.3g/l
The grapes used to craft this effervescent wine were handpicked from specially selected Pinot Noir and Chardonnay blocks in the Franschhoek valley. The juice was cold fermented and aged for 6 months before it was sealed in the bottle for the second fermentation process. Maturation on the lees for 5 years took place to develop richness.
This bottle fermented blend in equal components of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay is aged “sur lie” for 5 years before disgorgement with zero dosage, resulting in a complex, rich leesy sparkling wine with a crisp palate. Notes of baked apples, biscotti, brioche and a hint of pears are supported by the delicate bubbles.
Enjoy this rich and complex sparkling wine with fresh west coast oysters, plump ripe strawberries or to celebrate life.
