bouquet! Strawberry, black cherry, raspberry notes jump out of
the glass with a hint of mint and rose water in the background.
The mousse is fine, and soft, with a rich, generous attack
developing beautifully in the mouth into a clean, dry finish.
Tantalising balance and generosity of fruit make this a great
apéritif and food wine. Serve ice bucket cold.
Grapes for this Méthode Cap Classique (MCC) were all sourced
from parcels in the Hemel en Aarde ridge. It is here that we grow
high-quality Pinot noir used to produce wines of longevity and
finesse. Pinot noir is known throughout the world as one of the
traditional varietals used to produce the finest and most long-lived
sparkling wines, clone 52C, a champagne clone, is grown on the
Domaine des Dieux farm and picked for use in our MCC’s
We use the saignée method to achieve the colour in our Brut Rosé.
Juice is 'bled off' (saignée) from the press when it has extracted the
right level of colour. The base wines are then cool-fermented in
steel vats to preserve their delicate fruit flavours. A small portion
is fermented in new oak barrels to add an extra dimension to the
wines. At blending time the base wines for the Rosé are selected
for their perfumed fruit profiles. Following the secondary
fermentation in bottle, the wines lie in the bottle on their lees for 3
years in the cool of the cellar before disgorgement.
