2019 Rosé Rocks Competition - Double Gold

Never a fast process, developing our Methodé Cap Classique was no exception to the rule. Secondary fermentation leads to the build-up of pressure and infusion of bubbles into the wine, making this a stunning, naturally bottle fermented, matured on lees MCC. Definitely a wine to look out for, as this MCC is only available from the cellar door and at selected outlets.

in the vineyard : 

Terroir: Medium yellow, non-arid sandy soils with 60% red laterite dominating the sub surface soil.

about the harvest: 

The Chardonnay grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness for an MCC, a little higher in acidity and not overripe to preserve the natural acidity and have a low alcohol.
Yield: 6 t/ha
Balling at Harvest: 18° B

in the cellar : Vinification: Crush and destalk, 14 days fermentation and secondary fermentation in the bottle Maturation:Kept on the lees for 16 months for a fuller mouth feel, complexity and stable bubbles.
