Lourensford Mèthode Cap Classique Brut (6 Bottles in Case)
The elegant finesse of the fine bubbles of this beautiful sparkling wine enhances the iodine-like minerality that reminds you of a fresh ocean breeze and freshly crushed oyster shells, complemented with a rich biscuity allure and ladylike elegance after 4 and a half years of aging on the lees. Yeasty flavours of freshly baked bread, lemon zest and hints of Pink Lady apples are dominant on the nose. The fine mousse on the palate carries hints of citrus, pineapple and gooseberries and finishes in a rich and creamy aftertaste with hints of honey.

Food Pairing
  • A perfect aperitif for any occasion. This wine will go well with tempura oysters, deep fried fish, Asian food, sashimi, avocado and freshly baked bread. It is a sphisticated wine but goes well with simplistic, raw, fresh produce like a starter of fresh tomato and goat's cheese. It will also go well with a warm lemon and thyme chicken dish served with steamed vegetables like parsnips, fennel or asparagus. Acidic and salty cheeses such as goat's milk cheese or feta will also pair well.

The wine spent 54 months on its lees in bottle before it was riddled and disgorged. Only 5800 bottles produced
