Back Story & Wine Information

Growing in the ancient limestone soils so characteristic of the Breede River Valley region, our mature Chardonnay vineyard is ideally situated for yielding grapes of the quality, character and complexity required for an outstanding Cap Classique sparkling wine. Our Pinot Noir vineyards are situated on north-facing slopes, with grapes grown in black slate soil. The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes for this wine are selectively hand-harvested early in the season in the cool, early morning hours to ensure the crisp, fresh acidity so crucial to producing a superb Cap Classique sparkling wine.

Pairing
An excellent companion to grilled fish or chicken, this dry sparkling wine is best served as a welcoming drink alongside canapés filled with smoked salmon, or raspberry-baked Brie.
