About The Wine
This blend consists of 52% Pinot Noir and 48% Chardonnay grapes, and was created from an array of wines made from grapes grown in Franschhoek, Robertson and Elgin. 20 % of the blend is made from reserve wines from previous vintages, specially selected to enhance its complexity, maturity and consistency over the years. 10% of the base wine was fermented in french oak barrels, contributing to the integrated acidity and structure. Each bottle of our Brut Reserve spends at least 30 months gently maturing in our cellar, at a consistent temperature of 14°C, before it is ready to start its journey to enjoyment. This wine will develop beautifully over time (up to 4 or 5 years).
John Platter Wine Guide 4.5 Stars: "Sparkling from near-equal Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and is unashamedly New World in style, with explosive lemon and and apple bouquet , racy Granny Smith apple acidity. Oaked fraction and reserve wine, 32 months on lees add complexity and presence."
