complexities of these classic varieties, whilst capturing the
essence of laid back living.

TASTING NOTES: The attractive hue – vibrant
pink with a copper tinge – is especially appealing. Gorgeous

that unfold delicately on the palate. This wine features spicy,
mineral scented aromas of orange blossom, jasmine and pear followed
by layers of mouth filling raspberry cream, grapefruit, lime and
honeydew melon flavours. A juicy acidity provides the perfect
balance followed by a clean, satisfying finish.

makes the perfect companion to a wide range of food including
delightful summer salads, poultry, cream-based dishes, veal or
salmon; or simply quaffed as a refreshing aperitif.
AREA OF ORIGIN: Western Cape
VINEYARD: The quest to keep refining our
Cap Classique craft has led to exciting innovations both in the
cellar and our vineyards. Gorgeous has been crafted using fruit
from young, newly planted Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards which
are destined to become the foundation of our award winning Methode
Cap Classique portfolio.
HARVEST DETAILS: Separate parcels were hand
harvested at sugar levels of 18. B to 19.50 B, during the last two
weeks of January 2015.
CELLAR TREATMENT: Grapes were whole-bunch
pressed to gently extract the best quality juice. Fermentation was
done in stainless steel tanks and temperatures were regulated to
ensure steady and complete ferments. The parcels were blended
together after 3 months on primary lees.
