So begins the first week of December! High streets are flooding with panicking, desperate shoppers. Car parks are full, hot and frazzled shoppers join queues a mile long. I know, it doesn’t appeal to me either. Why face the stampedes when you can order classy gifts from home? Make that Christmas gift a Cap Classique (CC).
Cap Classique? Sounds exotic. This premium category of South Africa’s sparkling wine would make a perfect extraordinary gift. There are only around 2.5 million bottles of “CC” compared to 400 million of champagne. South Africa’s sparkling wine region is growing and it’s an exciting time to try this new trend.
Methode Cap Classique is made using the traditional method, similar to Cremant. Our Louisvale “CC” received a Gold award in 2016, and we can see why! Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes are used to ensure delicate fruit and rich complexity flows through.
