With a delightful bright salmon colour, this Cap Classique is encased with delicate bubbles and a persistent mousse. The wine displays enticing aromas of fresh raspberries and cranberries on the nose. On the palate, strawberry sherbet and white peach is beautifully complimented by hints of biscuits. Subtle, yet crisp acidity contributes length and flair to this precisely crafted Cap Classique.
Kaapse Vonkel Brut Rosé is excellent on its own but can also pair well with most seafood dishes; especially West Coast Rock Lobster – a seasonal Cape Town delicacy. Last but not least, fresh seasonal berries or any other light dessert. Serve between 6-8°C.
Ageing : Delicious when youthful and the primary grape bouquet is at its best.
In 2004 Simonsig winemaker, Johan Malan, created an innovative taste sensation by blending Pinot Noir with Pinotage and Pinot Meunier to launch the Kaapse Vonkel Brut Rosé.
In the cellar : All the grapes were handpicked in bins. The whole bunches were gently pressed in pneumatic presses to collect the most pure juice called the cuvée. The juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks, at about 14-16°C, with specially selected yeast strains to ensure optimum fruit and freshness in the wine
