West Cape Howe Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Made the same way as Champagne (fermented in bottle), this blend of chardy and pinot noir is a light to medium-bodied style that shows lemon citrus, subtle florals and strawberries on the nose, along with whiffs of buttered toast and roasted cashews. The palate is relatively dry and quite creamy, with a zip of citrusy acidity, fine bubbles, and a dry, crisp finish. The ideal start to a family weekend dinner with the in-laws.

Winemaker's Notes

All batches are kept separate during winemaking to maximise blending options and the complexity of the final wines. The wines go through secondary fermentation in bottles and are aged on yeast lees for as long as possible - the average tirage of the final blend is two years.

Appearance: Pale gold. Great clarity.

Nose: The lifted nose displays honeysuckle and citrus notes. The triage age contributes aromas of nougat and roasted nuts, while the Pinot Noir fruit shows delicate

Palate: The palate is well balanced with delicate fruit flavours, creaminess from the fine bead mousse and fresh acid. The wine finishes dry and light, with lingering flavours of citrus and nougat.

Cellaring: Immediate consumption, will cellar for up to 1 year.

Alcohol: 12.5%
