Mulderbosch claims it always has something to celebrate, and what better way to dot it than with its very own Cap Classique! With that in mind, the Stellenbosch wine estate has introduced its maiden vintage Mulderbosch Méthode Cap Classique BRUT 2014.
Using all three classic varietals – 53% pinot noir, 26% pinot meunier and 21% chardonnay – this “bubbly beauty” has been years in the making.
Harvested in 2014, all three varietal components were then matured for over a year on their lees before going into bottle for secondary fermentation. After a further twenty six months’ maturation – he pinot noir component was tank fermented, while the chardonnay and pinot meunier components were fermented in neutral 500L oak barrels – this sparkling wonder was disgorged and closed with a cork in August 2017.
The Mulderbosch Méthode Cap Classique BRUT 2014 has a creamy lees character with ripe summer fruits, a round structure and a fine mousse. It is perfect as an aperitif or as the ideal partner to freshly steamed crayfish tails, or just enjoy drinking the stars!
