A pioneering first for South Africa, whereby both varietals, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, were whole bunch pressed together – this award-winning Cap Classique proves its pedigree time and again both in local and international wine competitions. The Pinot Noir lends a berry-laden ripeness and subtle spiciness while the Chardonnay contributes creamy complexity.
The delightful salmon pink hue perfectly complements the delicious strawberry fruit flavours. Savour the light yeasty aromas, good freshness on the nose and rich creamy complexity on the palate. Fine mousse and a great length of flavour round off this blushing stunner.

”Pieter Ferreira has upped the amount of Chardonnay (to 14%) on this stylish vintage rosé, with Pinot Noir from Faure still occupying the core of the wine. Expressing the balance of the 2015 vintage, this is fresh, tangy and dry with subtle autolysis flavours of umami and toast after 53 months on lees and good underlying structure. 94 points”
