Tanzanite Brut MCC
According to Chef du Cave of Vieuve Cliquot Champagne: “Tanzanite Method Cap Classique is one of the best South African MCC’s on the market …if not the best one tasted."
As a good Cap Classique sparkling wine is rated on the mouth, this is an extremely important part for the Tanzanite style. The wines are tasted every six months to determine the time the specific vintage must spend on the lees. Ageing on the lees is one of the crucial parts in making a good Cap Classique, with this wine being matured for a minimum of 24 months on the lees. The wine must reach its optimum maturity, which is determined by the blend and the vintage.
This Brut is an elegant fizz. It has a firm structure, good depth of flavour and a firm mousse. Great intensity with luscious fruit, flinty and nutty with soft creamy notes. It’s fresh, dry, lingering and well structured. This is a structured and elegantly matured wine. The composition of this MCC is 80% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot noir.
Tanzanite Brut is hand crafted and produced in limited quantities - offering a truly unique and personal experience of the effort, patience, care and passion of its producer.
