"Our most prestigious and exclusive Cap Classique yet, the Cuvée Clive is testimony to our reputation as a world class producer of Methôde Champenoise style wines and a culmination of meticulous planning, unbridled passion and the pursuit of the perfect bubble.
This Cuvée is produced only in vintages of exceptional qualities from the two classic varieties Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The fruit for the Chardonnay is from our rich limestone vineyards on our estate in Robertson while the Pinot Noir is from our estate in Firgrove, Stellenbosch. Both varietals were hand-picked with the Chardonnay contributing fruit and elegance and the Pinot Noir complexity and length of flavour. In the cellar both the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were whole bunched pressed, separately. Only the highest quality juice (tête de cuvée) was settled overnight and then fermented in stainless steel at 16°C, with a small portion of Chardonnay fermented in specific Piece Champenoise (205 L) oak barrels. Afterfermentation the portions were selected to enhance the minerality, elegance and finesse. It was then bottled for the secondary bottle fermentation with a minimum of 60 months yeast contact before disgorgement. This exceptionally complex, yet subtle MCC is approachable and round with the potential to age and remarkably versatile with food."
