Tasting Note: 

"With an elegant light golden hue, this MCC with its fine persistent mousse displays aromas of white peach, fresh apple and pear. On the palate, stone fruit flavors are beautifully complimented by hints of citrus and raspberries. Lively acidity and a crisp, dry finish contributes to an elegant Cap Classique." 

Vintage Notes: 

"The 2018 vintage was really challenging due to the prolonged drought, which some believe to be the worst in 100 years, accompanied by water restrictions. The expertise of the vineyard team and cellar were definitely put to the test by the warm and dry climatic conditions. In the vineyard and in the cellar, we adapted our practices to minimise the effect of the water shortage. The dry weather throughout the season did have its advantages. as vines were healthy, with little or no pests or diseases being recorded in most regions. The dry, warm weather it resulted in smaller berries, but with great intensity. We targeted certain blocks and picked at various ripening levels to obtain fruit and natural acidity.
