Harvest began early in the season at lower sugar levels to achieve the mouthwatering natural freshness required for the making of great base wines in classic Cap Classique style.
The long labour of love that is the making of this premium MCC begins with a whole-bunch press in separate lots to capture all the grapes’ natural flavours. Only the finest freerun juice was used for fermentation. Upon completion, the tank was filled and left on the primary lees until blending for extra flavour and dimension. The final blend of the base wine was then stabilized and filtered.

Pale gold with a flourish of delicate bubbles and enticing lemon cream and almond Biscotti precede lovely layers of citrus and a finish with appealing length and freshness. Maturation on the lees provides a well-rounded, creamy mouth-feel with mouthwatering minerality, good balance and a seamless finish.
