Cederberg Blanc de Blancs MCC 2013

"Strings of dainty pearls in liquid gold". Made in the traditional French method of allowing a second fermentation to take place in the bottle. The Extended period on lees, allowed time to add to the creamy complexity of this sparkling wine. It resulted in a bouquet of baked brioche, apples with fresh lemon and grapefruit aromas, enticing your senses. A vibrant sparkling wine with a crisp and integrated acidity.

This Blanc de Blancs is to be savoured on any memorable occasion.
