Grape: Pinot Noir, Pinotage, Pinot Meunier
All the grapes were handpicked in bins. The whole bunches were gently pressed in pneumatic presses to collect the most pure juice called the cuvée. The juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks, at about 14-16°C, with specially selected yeast strains to ensure optimum fruit and freshness in the wine. The final composition of the Rosé is determined by meticulous tastings before the different cuvées are expertly blended resulting in the most refined and fruity wine. The fermentation in the bottle creates the millions of magic bubbles. The bottles are then matured in our cool and dark cellars for at least 15 months, adding layers of yeasty complexity to the delicious red berry flavours. When the perfect harmony is reached the disgorgement removes the yeast and in the final step a small quantity of dosage is added to finish a perfectly balanced Brut Rosé.
With a delightful bright salmon colour, this vibrant Cap Classique has a beautifully fine and persistent mousse. Captivating aromas of raspberries and cranberries are elevated by subtle floral notes. On the palate, strawberry shirbit and red berries are followed by a hint of biscuity complexity. Crisp acidity contributes freshness and flair to this delicate Cap Classique Rosé.
Delicious when youthful and the primary grape bouquet is at its best.
Kaapse Vonkel Brut Rosé is excellent on its own but can also pair well with most seafood dishes; especially West Coast Rock Lobster – a seasonal Cape Town delicacy. Last but not least, fresh seasonal berries or any other light dessert. Serve between 6-8°C.
