Rare across the world and the debut of its kind in South Africa, the Fairview Méthode Cap Classique is a celebration of Mediterranean varieties – Viognier, Grenache Noir and Grenache Blanc. A welcome addition to any celebration!
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 19 months before it was disgorged.
