Tasting notes:
'Chardonnay sparkling’s New World fruitiness offset by vibrant seam of acidity, racing tiny bubbles & fresh lemon-toned finish. 2013, retasted, still tightly wound, needs ±5 years to reveal full charms. 20% barrel fermented, 4 years on lees in bottle.' – Platter's Guid,e 4.5* (94/100)

'One of a quartet of bubblies in the Anthonij Rupert range, this Blanc de Blancs marries Chardonnay grapes from Elandskloof and Darling. Late disgorged - and so reviewed as a new wine this year - it tastes much drier than is 8 grams of dosage, with chiselled focus and fine bubbles. Dink 2019-24.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 92/100

'As fresh as a sea breeze, with sea shells initially before grapefruit. A subtle hint of perfume makes their presence obvious on the nose. The palate is lip-smackingly taut, zesty and crisp on entry. Bright and fresh with tangy lemon- and grapefruit vivacity - that then makes way for riper, fleshier fruit – generous orange, apple- and stone fruit flavour. The wine then broadens out on the mid-palate with a creamier, fuller-bodied richness taking over before it tightens once more with a defined, dry and crisp tail.' – Winemaker
