MAN Family Wines
METHODE CAP CLASSIQUE


In South Africa, the traditional Champagne method is known as M├ęthode Cap Classique (MCC). These must spend a minimum of 12 months in bottle on the lees to qualify for this designation.

This is a traditional-method bottle-fermented sparkling wine. The wine is light-yellow, with a green tinge. 
A refreshing style with lemon-drop and Granny-Smith apple aromas. Fresh quince and lively lemon zest on the palate. The finish is long with hints of biscotti and cookie dough flavours from the time on lees. The beauty of this wine is its versatility.

From the winemaker:
30% of the wine was matured in oak for 4 months prior to bottling. Secondary fermentation happened in the bottle and the wine matured for a further 13 months on the lees before disgorgement. A small amount of barrel-fermented wine was used to add complexity with dosage. Another 3 months conditioning and settling time was allowed before release.

Pairing:
Perfect as an aperitif or complemented by delicate dishes such as fresh oysters and lobster, although even a tuna steak and pommes frites would pair suitably. Serve chilled at 5°C. Methode Cap Classique Brut NV: "91 points" –Neil Martin, eRobertParker.com. November 2015
