Groote Post Methode Cap Classique Brut
The Groote Post Brut is an elegant refreshing Cap Classique displaying a vibrant pale gold colour, a fine creamy mousse, zesty notes of green apple and white pear with hints of brioche, a well-rounded velvety yet lively mouthfeel and a crisp lingering finish.
The blend composition is 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir. The two varietals ripen at different stages – we strive to harness the fruity components from the Pinot Noir and the structure and acidity from the Chardonnay.
Traditional whole bunch pressing and the juice then undergoes fermentation in stainless steel tanks and spends three months on the lees thereafter. As a non-vintage wine, we have the luxury of making up the final blend from different vintages. The wine undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle and matures for 14-20 months on the lees. Thereafter the disgorging and dosage take place.
