Colmant, Absolu Zero Dosage, Franschhoek, South Africa, NV
A Prestige Cuvee, the ultimate expression of Colmant.
Absolu Zero Dosage NV is 100% Chardonnay with the fruit coming from Franschhoek (65%) and Robertson (35%). A portion of the base wine (15%) is fermented in French oak barrels while a further 15% of reserve wine from previous vintages is also blended in. These techniques contribute to the complexity and elegance of the finished product – as does the extended time on lees, 85 months minimum – or seven years in layman’s terms!
Colmant Absolu NV is the pinnacle of the range: a Blanc de Blanc with zero dosage and extended lees maturation of 85 months. A poised balance of maturity, complexity and fresh vivacity.
