Words from our winemaker, Megan:

The Vintage

A wine’s vintage usually refers to the year that the fruit was harvested. The term “non-vintage” is used for this product as the contents of the bottle have been picked and preserved from more than one harvest year/ vintage.

In blending wines of different sensorial attributes together, we end up with a final copy that is far more complex.

The Wine

The PAS DE NOM NV MCC is a Methode Cap Classique made from 100% Chardonnay grapes that grow on the cool, sandstone mid-slopes of Franschoek.

Grapes are picked in January’s early morning hours between 18.5- and 19.5 degrees Balling before being sent to the cold room overnight. The following morning the small lug boxes are tipped into a pneumatic press, where the grapes are gently seperated from their skins and seeds. The Chardonnay juice is sent to a cooled tank, where it settles overnight before being racked into its fermentation vessel – stainless steel.

Fermentation takes place slowly at a very low temperature and the fermentation lees is stirred often – during and after fermentation throughout aging on the gross lees. The wine spent 18 months on the lees during and after second fermentation before it was disgorged.

This MCC boasts a lively, fine moussse and zesty, citrus aromas that demand a plunge into the sparkling medium. Beyond the first aromas one experiences a fleeting aroma of brioche before the Olfactory cortex becomes completely consumed by flavours of green apple and limestone. The palate shows rich texture, though light in weight, with a beautifully balanced acidity.
