Sparkling Chenin Blanc MCC 2017, DeMorgenzon

£23.95 per bottle

About this wine

The sparkling gem in the DeMorgenzon portfolio is this über-fine Method Cap Classique (MCC). Made to the Champagne method where secondary fermentation takes place in bottle, it is created from 100% estate-grown Chenin Blanc grapes. Matured on its lees for 18 months it then receives its dosage (for this component, Carl van der Merwe uses ‘Late Harvest’ style of Chenin Blanc which has been aged in French oak barriques) prior to dégorgement and release onto the market.  The 2017 shows honey, white peach and hints of pineapple which are complemented by savoury notes of roasted almond and toasted brioche. A fine mousse and refreshing acidity provides a remarkably refreshing drinking experience.

Alcohol: 12.42% ABV

Add to this list Stellenbosch in South Africa and the picture is complete. A waxy, citrus and cream styled white variety with stunning acidity and natural balance, it can produce deeply-flavoured wines from dry through to botrytis-affected sweet styles. It is a natural in every sense and in the hands of the greatest growers in South Africa shows the shimmering potential of the Rainbow Nation on the world stage."
