Our pale pink 1682 Pinot Noir Méthode Cap Classique is fresh with fruity aromas of raspberry jelly, wild strawberry sorbet, red apple skin and toasted brioche. The wine has a very fine mousse that lifts the raspberry-like aromas and is balanced well with a creamy texture and bright acidity with a lingering dry finish. Enjoy in its youth or cellar for 3 to 5 years to promote a more savoury flavour development.

In The Cellar

The Brut 1682 Pinot Noir is made in the traditional French method and is designated Méthode Cap Classique. The grapes were hand-picked at low sugar levels of 18.5 – 19°B and whole-bunch pressed. The extracted juice is low in phenols, high in natural acidity and has a delicate pink color and fine strawberry flavour. The juice ferments with a strong yeast strain to form the base wine of the MCC. Once the base wine is stabilised, it is fermented a second time in the bottle under crown cap. This second fermentation creates the bubbles (or mousse) of the MCC. Post fermentation, the wine was aged on its yeast lees for a minimum of 10 months before first disgorgement in April 2018.
