An evocative light straw colour with an eyecatching flirtatious mousse. The nose shows vivacious lemon and lime aromas, with a maritime layer of oyster-shell. On the palate the wine has delicate yeasty tones layered with green lime zest, citrus and brioche, all enlivened with a firm, well integrated mousse and a persistent bead. Great vibrant mouthfeel with toasty notes, citrus, honey and tropical nuances ending in a bright long lingering finish. Alc: 12.59% RS: 3.12g/l – Extra Brut TA: 7.14g/l pH: 3.17
The third vintage of this stunning bubbles. After producing 2012 and 2013, Pieter was unsure if they were going to continue the passion project and they didn’t produce a 2014 vintage. Six years and six months is a very long lead time, and we are very happy they kept up the great work! The Cape Winelands 2015 vintage is a brilliant vintage – known as a ‘rockstar’ year for wine – due to mild, temperate conditions during the growing season which allowed for even-ripening of grapes. This results are seen in this Blanc de Blancs release which is led by a bright, fresh acidity and complete balance, offering a nuance of ripe citrus fruit and a classic restrained elegance elevated with an energetic mousse.
