A richer, creamier biscuit and lees element then comes to the fore, indicative of the complexity, refinement and layers of flavour. Harmonious, statuesque and beautifully structured, this wine has fantastic length and presence on the palate. Long farewell with a distinct lime marmalade on toast note.

Good vibrancy on the nose with perfumey notes balancing the ripe fruitiness and fresh lime character. The palate displays a crisp natural acidity, however rounded with a creamy texture and a long pleasant nish. An exquisite Methode Cap Classique!
The wine announces with an eye catching vigorous bubble. Typical yeast and cracker biscuit notes on the nose with lively citrus rind and a briny, maritime nuance is also apparent. The palate succeeds in being both refreshingly vibrant and simultaneously dry. Bright effervescence with creamy lees richness from its time in the bottle, with distinct brioche and sourdough toast notes vying with lively grapefruit and citrus flavours. Elegant, restrained, taut and thrilling, it’s beautifully poised yet equally flamboyant and exuberant! A gentle nutty note lingers on the long tail.
Coral pink hue with a vigorous stream of fine bubbles. Bold strawberry and red berry fruit on the nose. There’s more of this in the mouth – with cherry, strawberry and bold red fruit on entry. The fresh, zesty lemon and citrus zip of acidity adds succulence to the mouthful. A broader creaminess then develops with signature toast and biscuit notes. Balanced and harmonious, the wine is well structured, long and complex but refreshing and vibrant throughout.
Subtle coral and partridge eye hue. Consistent stream of delicate bubbles. Complex nose of citrus zest – naartjie and tangerine – underpinned by toast and red cherries with a briny, maritime nuance. Rich, rounded and full palate with brioche, yeast and baked biscuit notes, all perfectly counterbalanced by a vibrant tang of tangerine and succulent red cherry appeal. Delightful twist of dry, chalky grip. Crisp and refreshing with a defined yet richly rewarding mouthful. Lovely long aftertaste reflective of both a good vintage and well judged time on lees during secondary fermentation.
Pale onion skin hue. Vigorous bead of fine, pristine bubbles and aromas of yeast with underlying red berries and stone fruit. Rounded by a subtle honeyed note.

Vibrant and fresh, yet creamy, rich and statuesque. Wonderfully lingering finish.
