Boschendal Cap Classique Brut NV
A delicious and refreshing traditional bottle-fermented Cap Classique from Boschendal in South Africa.
Pale gold with a flourish of delicate bubbles and enticing lemon cream and almond Biscotti precede lovely layers of citrus and a finish with appealing length and freshness. Maturation on the lees provides a well-rounded, creamy mouth-feel with mouthwatering minerality, good balance and a seamless finish. Enjoy well chilled as on its own or as the perfect partner for panko-crusted prawns with lemon-garlic aioli, gourmet mac and cheese with parmesan and pancetta or fresh oysters.
Chardonnay 56%; Pinot Noir 44% Harvest began early in the season at lower sugar levels to achieve the mouthwatering natural freshness required for the making of great base wines in classic Cap Classique style. Grapes were hand-picked in the cool dawn before the rush of day, lovingly quality sorted for any impurities and placed in small lug boxes for gentlest handling in transportation to the cellar.
