Gone are the days when it was only appropriate to sip a glass of bubbly at a special occasion. These days the trend is to savour it at any occasion and throughout the year – rain or shine, it’s perfect throughout the year. Adding Glen Carlou’s Blanc de Blancs Brut 2018 to your Cap Classique collection is guaranteed to draw attention.
Made from 100% Chardonnay the grapes were handpicked early in the morning and handled reductively to preserve the integrity of the fruit for the base wine. Grapes were sourced from vineyard blocks in the Simonsberg-Paarl region as well as Robertson.
Bottle fermented and left on the lees for 30 months, winemaker Johnnie Calitz wholeheartedly agrees that this is the quintessential Cap Classique for all occasions. This Brut Nature style reveals distinct white peach, cinnamon spice and subtle jasmine florals aromas. These carry through to textured brioche aromas and nuances of lemon and lime, as well as a mineral green apple crispness, which become evident in the glass. The exceptionally fine mousse supports the sparkle and finesse of this gem, perfect for immediate enjoyment. Available online via the wine shop or directly from the Tasting Room at R320 per bottle.

DID YOU KNOW?
In 2016 the 145-hectare property was transferred back to local ownership when, Glen Carlou was purchased by a South African family consortium. Significant investments have been made for the vineyard replanting programme, one of several initiatives implemented since the change in ownership. Robust drought resistant rootstocks and new clones are being planted to increase the hectares under vine. The rich tapestries of passionate people interwoven with insightful custodians have shaped and continue to develop Glen Carlou. A splendid storyline supports their desirable international reputation of being a trusted, highly awarded and respected wine brand.
