A great alternative to Prosecco and something different to offer guests, this South African wine – Jacques Bruere South African Sparkling Cap Classique is made in the traditional style as Champagne is. Dry, crisp and full of citrus notes you really get a great bang for your buck with this bottle. The aroma offers hints of fresh lime and citrus, complemented by a subtle yeastiness, whilst the palate shows great finesse on the finish with a crisp, rich and creamy complexity.
Made in the traditional way with the second fermentation done in the bottle makes this completely dry and has low residual sugar. Slow and steady wins the race with this wine as it is laid on lees for 8 months to develop the flavour after the 1st fermentation! The second fermentation is then followed by a further 84 months. Post disgorgement the bottle is further aged for another 9 months before the final product is released for consumption. Perfectly drinkable upon release, Jacques Bruere is also suitable to age for 3-5 years as well. To make things even better this product is both vegan and vegetarian-friendly.
This range is named in honour of the Bruwer’s French Huguenot lineage, the Brueres, who hailed from the Loire Valley. They are handmade from beginning to end in accordance with the traditional “Champagne” method.
