Weltevrede Philip Jonker Brut The Ring 2010

Weltevrede Philip Jonker Brut The Ring 2010

A golden colour with a green tinge and a delicate stream of bubbles gliding to the surface . Lemon grass, fynbos-honey, cucumber, melon and mint leaves makes for a complex nose. The palate is crisp and focused with flavours of green apple, citrus and mint leaves. A tight and minerally style of Blanc de Blanc.

On it's own or with Sushi and Oysters. This Cap Classique also has enough structure to compliment main course dishes with flavours of citrus and lemon grass.

The Story:
This Cap Classique celebrates a seal and completion. A promise of lifelong allegiance.The maiden vintage was released on Philip Jonker’s wedding day.

"I met Lindelize while studying to become a winemaker. My debut wine was a Cap Classique of which I popped the first cork at my wedding with my barefoot bride under an old oak tree in the Karoo. The Ring is a constant reminder of this bond of love."
