Pieter Ferreira Cap Classique Rosé 2016 is an attractive salmon colour with a vibrant yet fine persistent bead of mousse. This release of Rose offers wonderful balance, ripe fruit some perfume and restraint. A delicate floral perfume in the glass before offering pomegranate and cherries with a hint of summer fruits. Refreshing acidity and smooth bubbles make this a particularly food friendly. Delicate yeasty tones, layered with red berry fruit fills the palate with complexity. Great vibrant mouthfeel with creamy texture and layered intriguing lingering finish Alc: 11.9%, RS: 0.424g/100ml – Extra Brut, TA: 8.4g/l, pH: 3.02

This incredible bubbles is produced in very limited quantities (2400 bottles per year), and spends 6 years on the lees for optimal maturation. We would expect nothing less from the sparkling wine power couple from South Africa Mr & Mrs Bubbles (aka Pieter and Ann Ferreira)

In the vineyard

<p>The Pinot Noir was selected from various sites from Durbanville and Darling regions. A combination of sites consisting of decomposed granite weathered shales.</p>

In the cellar

<p>The 2016 vintage has been a very<br /> gentle year with beautiful ripeness levels in our parcels of Pinot Noir. The parcels of Pinot<br /> Noir were hand-selected and hand-picked. Prior to pressing the whole bunches was allowed<br /> to have a short period of enzymatic colour extraction, to draw sufficient natural colour before pressing. Then pressed with the separation of cuvee from the taille, and only the cuvee clear juice was fermented in stainless steel. After the first fermentation, the wine was prepared for secondary fermentation in the bottle. The wine was left on the lees for 6 (six) years before the sediment was removed in the traditional process of remuage and dégorgement. The bottles were then corked and laid down for a further few months cork maturation before release.</p>
