Aristea Méthode Cap Classique Blanc, Brut, Western Cape, 2015

Lot: 1057 Supplier: ARISTEA Country/Region: South Africa /Western Cape Major Grape: Chardonnay

Méthode Cap Classique, known as MCC is the South African term for the "traditional method" of making sparkling wines used in the Champagne region. 2015 is the first release of Aristea MCC and is a huge success. It is elegant and complex on the nose with ripe peaches, stone fruit and a toasty brioche character. It is fine in texture with a soft creamy mid palate, fine mousse and refreshing acidity on the finish. This is a fresh and elegant style perfect for drinking over the next few years. Produced from a combination of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes picked in the cool early morning, the whole bunches were slowly pressed and only the first fraction of juice used for Aristea. After fermentation and malolactic in tank, the base wine was blended and bottled for a lengthy secondary fermentation and maturation in bottle for three years.
