All grapes used in the MCC sparkling wine originate from Franschhoek. The Pinot Noir vines grow in sandy Tukulu soils on the banks of the Franschhoek river and the Chardonnay grapes on the granite slopes of the Franschhoek mountain. Extremely low yielding vineyards at 4.5 tonnes / ha. Both Chardonnay & Pinot Noir were harvested at 18˚ and 20˚ Balling respectively into small crates and carefully transported to the cellar.
Fermentation of 15% off the blend took place in older small French oak barrels and the rest in stainless steel tanks, using a noble yeast namely CE 1118. The must was fermented between 14 - 17˚C and the lees was stirred up daily for three months and then twice every week for three months thereafter. Barrel maturation took place for six months before being blended for bottling. During and after the second fermentation in bottle the wine spent thirteen months on the lees, in the bottle before it was de-gorged and released.
Enjoy with oysters, seared salmon and sushi, or with desserts such as berry pavlova.
