Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes for the Thelema Cap Classique 2017 were harvested early in the morning by hand to keep the fruit cool. They were loaded straight into the press for a gentle whole-bunch press cycle. The juice was clarified using the cold settling technique and allowed to settle for 48 hours. The clean juice was racked to the fermentation tank where it completed its alcoholic (primary) fermentation at 14°C. The CC was allowed to age under crown cap for 63 months, after which the wine was disgorged, and a small amount of dosage was added. Residual sugar: 5.8 g/. Bottled at 12%. (Bottle size 750ml) 

Nose: The 2017 vintage has classic brioche yeasty notes whilst also showing fresh granny smith apples.

Palate: The palate is lined with lively bubbles. Fresh apples and pears with a touch of lemon peel. This brings about a crisp yet rich and creamy mouthfeel.

Finish: Refreshing and fine mousse with lingering notes of honey and croissants.
