Description

This MCC exhibits a vibrant intensity and revels in style and elegance. Aromas of nougat and brioche etch the delicious limy character. Lingering mineral tones complements the fine mousse, enhancing notes of red apple and nutty flavours on the palate.

Winemaking Notes

Grapes were hand harvested in the cool of the morning. The bunches were hand sorted and whole bunch pressed. Only free run juice was used in the final blend to create its delicate taste and originality. No malolactic fermentation was done on the base wines to preserve its crisp style, freshness, clean structure and fruit flavours. After blending and bottling took place, the secondary fermentation commenced in the bottle for four weeks at 15°C, thereafter the MCC was bottle matured on the lees before disgorgement.

Growing Conditions

Doused with all the privileges of a cool climate, Walker Bay is synonymous with outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. These
vineyards were meticulously managed to produce a stellar methode cap classique, showcasing its location. Nudged by the lagoon with vistas of the Atlantic Ocean, the vineyards enjoy cool daytime temperatures that drop even more at night. A beneficial diurnal range aids in even ripening and complexity while maritime winds encourage healthy vines.
