    Taking its inspiration from the design of the Ducati Monster, we stripped off all the bling so commonly associated Champagnes, MCC, Prosecco’s etc. Yes, you can’t read the label which makes you pick it up and engage….now you just have to buy it. With a sugar level of 8g/l, well below the Brut limit of 12g/l, combined with the Chardonnay/Pinot Noir blend we have a style that is far more accessible. A very Sociable style that is suited to large parties, wedding and groups of friends, you will need

    Description

    CELLAR INFORMATION All our fruit is
    handpicked in the early morning and handled reductively to preserve the integrity of the fruit. A light
    whole bunch pressing according to the traditional champagne method is followed by 2days of cold
    settling to clarify the juice. A maximum of 500l/ton is recovered at this stage. The juice is inoculated
    with selected Champagne yeast to enhance freshness and elegance in the base wine. Fermentation
    lasts for 14days at 15°C. 12 months of full lees contact is allowed post fermentation to add richness
    and texture to the wine. After 12months in the tank, the base wine is stabilized and bottled for
    second fermentation under a crown cap. This wine spent 27months in the bottle before disgorging. VINEYARD INFORMATION The fruit for our NV Chardonnay/ Pinot Noir Brut MCC was selected from various vineyards growing in the Franschhoek Valley.

    Each site contributes a different flavour profile to the final blend as it grows in diverse soil types and slopes.
