Benguela Cove Joie De Vivre Cap Classique 2019 was produced from 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir. In the vineyards, doused with all the privileges of a cool climate, Walker Bay is synonymous with outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. These vineyards meticulously managed to produce a stellar Cap Classique, showcasing its location. In the cellar grapes were hand-harvested in the cool of the morning. The bunches were hand-sorted and whole-bunch pressed. Only free-run juice fermented in stainless steel and barrels was used in the final blend to create its delicate taste and originality. Only partial malolactic fermentation (30%) was done on the base wines to preserve their crisp style, freshness, clean structure, and fruit flavours. After blending and bottling took place, the secondary fermentation commenced in the bottle for four weeks at 15°C, thereafter the CC was bottle matured on the lees before disgorgement. 36 months on lees and 30% barrel fermented. Residual sugar: 7.9 g/l. Bottled at 12.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Inviting aromas of nougat and shortbread biscuit are followed by intricate notes of citrus, almonds, and grapefruit.

Palate: Citrus notes of lemon and orange peel. Mid-palate has red fruits and lovely weight from the Pinot Noir component.

Finish: A fine vibrant mousse with refreshing oyster shell minerality and acidity. Lingering notes of almonds and grapefruit.
