Avontuur Brut Methode Cap Classique

Avontuur Brut Methode Cap Classique

Avontuur's Cap Classique is bottle fermented and then left on the lees for 4 years, resulting in a crisp, fresh sparkling wine with lemon and lime on the nose and a citrusy follow-through on the palate. It has a fine mousse and a just-baked, yeasty finish which lingers on the aftertaste

Breakfast and with Oysters or just on its own.
