Blend Information

A Selection of Red & White Grapes

Food Suggestions

This is a wonderful combination with bacon and camembert flapjackstopped with fresh berries or try it with a decadent white chocolatecheese case with a berry coulis.

In The Vineyard

The grapes were sourced from various established vineyards in the Western Cape region planted at altitudes ranging from 50 to 300 metres above sea level. The white and red grape varieties are selected from different vineyard sites to provide the diverse building blocks needed for the unique flavours, aromas and complexity of the carefully blended base wine.

In The Cellar

This sparkling wine is made of a blend of carefully selected white and red grape varieties, comprising Sauvignon Blanc (60%), White Muscadel (15%), Pinotage(20%), and Shiraz (5%). The grapes were harvested by hand at 21.5 - 23.7° Balling and placed in small baskets to prevent bruising. The colour was extracted from the skins during the first 24 hours in the cellar. Fermentation is stopped by lowering the temperature to 0°C when the alcohol level of 7.5 vol % has been reached leaving 75 g/l of natural grape sugar in the wine. The sparkle is created by infusing the base wine with CO2
