A full flavoured Demi-sec sparkling Rosé made by the traditional Methodé Cap Classique. Meticulous blending by our experienced winemaker creates an elegant and classy Rosé with a youthful berry fragrance and striking finesse on the palate.

in the vineyard : The 2017 vintage was a challenging one that led to a smaller, but very promising harvest for the Stellenbosch region. The dry warm weather produced grapes with small berries with great fruit intensity. The cooler nights and warmer days during the ripening period resulted in grapes with excellent colour and fruit formation. The components for this MCC 2017 did not disappoint and we were delighted with the quality and intense fruit spectrum from the various blocks.

about the harvest: All the grapes are handpicked in bins.

in the cellar : The whole bunches are gently pressed in pneumatic presses to collect the purest juice named cuvée. The juice is then fermented in stainless steel tanks at about 14-16°C with specially selected yeast strains to ensure optimum fruit and freshness in the wine
