Tasting Notes

The wine is refreshingly dry with abundant strawberry and raspberry flavours. It has a delicate mousse which supports a dry, rich palate.

Blend Information

70% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir

About The Harvest

The grapes are picked greener to capture youthful fruit and a higher acidity level is needed to make the MCC sparkling wine. The fruit is carefully selected from slopes overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

In The Cellar

After fermentation the wine is blended with previous vintages and a final blend is then bottled for the second fermentation. Hence the wine being labelled non-vintage. The second fermentation and ageing normally taskes 12—14 months.
