Aristea Methode Cap Classique Rosé Stellenbosch, 2017

South Africa

Producer

Aristea Wines

Grape Variety

Chardonnay

The Krone name in South Africa has been strongly associated with Sparkling or Méthode Cap Classic wines as they are known in the Cape, for centuries. Matt, as twelfth generation winemaker, continues the tradition. Pale salmon in colour, Aristea sparkling rosé has delicious and intense aromas of hazelnuts and toast. It is rich with ripe red fruit flavours, a creamy texture with fine mousse and great depth. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes were handpicked in the cool early morning hours of January 18th and 24th, respectively. The bunches of grapes were gently pressed, and the first best free run juices fermented to produce the base wines. The blended cuvée was then bottled and underwent a lengthy secondary fermentation and maturation on lees for 24 months.
