For this maiden vintage, grapes from Elgin, Wellington and Robertson were used. The wine was partially fermented in barrel and then racked from its gross lees into older French oak barriques to accentuate the fresh citrus fruit aromas Chardonnay offers. Battonage was done once a week for 3 months to add a creamy mouthfeel to the wine.
TASTING NOTES: The wine has a zesty, limey nose showing ripe lemons, grapefruit and even a hint of lemongrass. Vibrant citrus fruit flavours dominate the mid-palate with integrated acidity, a medium body and a fresh mouthfeel, all supported by understated French oak flavours. The finish is exceptionally smooth with hints of clementine and orange peel.

Le Lude Cap Classique

the art of making “bubbles” in the heart of Franschhoek South Africa.

At Le Lude, portions of MCC are fermented and aged under both cork and crown-cap.
Wine-maker Paul Gerber is a pioneer in fermentation of Cap Classique on cork.
According to Paul, this process – Agarfé – leads to a more complex and unique development of flavours and mouth-feel. “The main reason for this is the difference in the rate of exchange of gases that takes place when the bottle is closed with a cork for the secondary fermentation and aging compared with crown-cap,” he says. “It leads to a wine with a unique character, and in Champagne some of the houses such as Bollinger, Krug and Tattinger still use it.”

Beautifully bright pink colour with pungent fruity flavours of red berries and a touch of spice. Smooth and round on the palate with a balanced natural acidity. A refreshing wine with a mouthwatering finish.
