Fairview Charles Back Brut 2017

(2 customer reviews)


In true Fairview style we’ve selected unique varieties from our own vineyards to make this exciting Methode Cap Classique. This year we only used Viognier and Grenache blanc for the base wine resulting in a crisp, fresh wine with lower residual sugar making it even more age worthy.

The grapes were transferred to the press by hand and gently, whole-bunch pressed. Only the free run juice was used. The juice settled and the clear juice was transferred to stainless steel tanks for fermentation. The blended wine was left on the lees in tanks for 6 months before bottling for second fermentation, which took place in the bottle under crown cap (traditional Methode Cap Classique (MCC). The wine was left to mature on the lees for 36 months before it was disgorged.

    I just love this. Gave a taste to my friend and now she too is hooked. This will be my 3rd order.

    My favourite bubbles. Gave some to a dear friend who is now also buying. A very refreshing drink for long summer days.
