Klein Constantia - Méthode Cap Classique Brut 2016
OverviewTerroir: Grapes are selected from a single block, one of the oldest located on the lower slopes of Klein Constantia. Harvested early in the season in numerous batches to ensure complexity in freshness, fruit and intensity.
Vinification: The grapes were whole-bunch pressed using only the free-run juice and fermented, before being aged in a combination of stainless steel tank and barrels for 7 months. Following blending, bottling and secondary fermentation, the wine was aged for a further 38 months before disgorging.
Additional Details editLight and bright in appearance. Spicy citrus aromas fill the nose supported by saline and green apple notes. The palate is rich and zesty, defined by a fine and delicate mousse. Complex and creamy with a balanced acidity, the wine finishes with a fresh and flinty finish.
