Notes

'“The Chardonnay keeps the Pinot Noir honest with finesse and elegance” is how Pieter Ferreira describes this brilliant vintage cuvée. Mature, bronze pink and very complex, it spends four years on lees. Concentrated, dry and chalky with fine bubbles and some toast and wild strawberry sweetness. 2017-22'. – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2017, 94/100

Lovers of fine fizz with be tickled pink with this exceptional bubbly – pretty and pink, but packing some serious Cap Classique pedigree, this one’s a must to celebrate magical moments and toast special occasions.

Crafted from 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay the Brut Rosé Vintage was produced in our Robertson Méthode Cap Classique cellar from grapes sourced from our Firgrove farm (Pinot Noir) and our Robertson estate (Chardonnay). The two varietals each add their own special magic to the final blend – Chardonnay for fruit and elegance and Pinot Noir for length of flavour and a touch of colour. During vinification we followed a unique approach (a first for South Africa), whereby the whole bunches, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, were jointly pressed as a blend, in the same press. After fermentation in stainless steel tanks the wine was bottled for secondary fermentation with a total of 36 months yeast contact before disgorgement. The delightful salmon pink colour perfectly complements the delicious strawberry fruit flavours. Savour the light yeasty aromas, good freshness on the nose and rich creamy complexity on the palate. Fine mousse and a great length of flavour round off this blushing stunner.

'Delicate and a delightfully demure, yet complex and richly rewarding – this vintage Brut Rosé ticks all the boxes for serious bubbly connoisseurs.'
