Notes

Last year was a momentous one in the decade-long life of this boutique Méthode Cap Classique bubbly house, as part-owner/winemaker John Loubser resigned his position as MD of Constantia’s Steenberg to concentrate solely on this own-brand. ‘The time has come to transform my involvement in Silverthorn from a part-time hobby into a full-time lifestyle’. This includes building a new cellar on their Robertson farm, ready for the 2019 crush. Increased production of their handcrafted sparkles is necessary to meet demand – the result of co-owner Karen Loubser’s energetic and enthusiastic brand building. – Platter’s Wine Guide 2018

Tasting notes:
'Gently spiced aromas on NV rosé sparkling from Shiraz, giving extra gingery fillip to red-berried fruit while 18 months on lees adds almonds & cream in delicious mouthful.' – Platter’s Wine Guide 2018, 4*

'Silverthorn is unusual among Cape producers in that it only makes fizz, and fizz of high quality, it should be added. This very pale rosé is made from Shiraz of all things and it's delicious with perfumed red a savoury undertone, pinhead bubbles and a crisp finish.' – Tim Atkin MW
