Reviews and Ratings

The 2011 Brut Blanc de Blancs comes from the best blocks from Robertson wine-producing area in the Breede River Valley - 50% of the Chardonnay wine grapes for this wine were fermented in barrel to give the wine some comlexity and a creamy mouthfeel. The sparkling wine is made in the Methode Cap Classique and is aged in bottle for 36 months. The wine won Silver at the 2016 International Wine Challenge - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
