This MCC is salmon-pink tinged with flavours of strawberry and hints of yeasty biscuit. It is crafted according to the age-old tradition of second fermentation in the bottle.
70% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir
In The Vineyard
The fruit is carefully selected from slopes overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
In The Cellar
To maintain consistent quality and style we kept this MCC non-vintage. The final blend before second fermentation can consist of two to three different vintages.
All the grapes are whole bunch pressed. Only the best quality juice is used for the initial fermentation. After fermentation the wine is blended with previous vintages and a final blend is then bottled for the second fermentation. The second fermentation and ageing normally takes 10 to 12 months.
