Klein Constantia Methode Cap Classique Brut 2019
Klein Constantia Methode Cap Classique Brut
The grapes are selected from a single block located on the lower slopes of Klein Constantia. Three different batches were harvested between January and February to ensure freshness, fruit and intensity.
Bright and light straw in colour. Aromas of baked brioche and granny smith apples are abundant on the nose. The palate is dominated by a powerful mousse with a full and zesty minerality. Fresh and lively, the wine ends with a crisp and lingering finish.
The grapes were whole-bunch pressed using only the free-run juice and fermented, before being aged in stainless steeltank for 7 months. Following blending, bottling andsecondary fermentation, the wine was aged for a further 33months before disgorging.
Residual Sugar: 6.1g/l
Klein Constantia is custodian to some of the most historic vineyards in South Africa and, indeed, the world. The unique location, climate and soils of our estate call for the making of terroir-driven wines, and it is to this principle that we are deeply committed.
Simple winemaking techniques are used to extract the best from grapes grown in expertly nurtured vineyards in the aim of making consistently excellent wines.
The concept of “terroir” has a strong influence on the character of wine produced at Klein Constantia, with soil and climatic conditions ideal for producing grapes with ample fruit flavours.
Situated between 70 metres and 343 metres above sea level, with a constant sea breeze above 150 metres, temperatures remain cool, preserving the fruit during ripening. With the ocean a mere 10 kilometres away, the wind plays an important factor, too, often stressing the vineyard and resulting in an increase in concentration and flavour in the fruit.
