Cap Classique Brut 2017

R185.00

The elegant finesse of the fine bubbles of this beautiful sparkling wine enhances the iodine-like minerality that reminds you of a fresh ocean breeze and freshly crushed oyster shells, complimented with a rich biscuity allure and ladylike elegance after 4 and a half years of aging on the lees. Yeasty flavours of freshly baked bread, lemon zest and hints of Pink Lady apples are dominant on the nose. The fine mousse on the pallet caries hints of citrus, pineapple and gooseberries and finishes in a rich and creamy aftertaste with hints of honey.

Harvest Description

The preceding two winters has been the driest in recorded history on Lourensford Estate. However, due to enough cold weather during winter the vines did go into proper dormancy with budding that occurred normally. We did not have the usual severe South Easter winds at the start of summer. This resulted in very good and even budding and flowering of the vines. We also experienced one of the coolest and driest summers in history with moderate temperatures and cool nights that resulted in slow and even ripening. With good canopy management and perfect ripening conditions we managed to bring the grapes in at just the desired time. This resulted in refined wines with elegance, good natural acidity with depth and structure.
