2017 Babylonstoren 'Sprankel' Brut Blanc de Blancs Method Cap Classique Simonsberg-Paarl with Gift Box
Winemaker Notes: It will maintain freshness and a refined finish for years to come. Leaving it on the lees in excess of four years adds the richness of Granny’s butter biscuits and brioche to the vibrant citrus and crunchy apple flavours.Perfectly rounded and balanced with crisp acidity, ripe fruit and palate cleansing mousse, inviting another sip.Chilled, 10–15°C (50–59°F). Delicious on its own but will be superb with simply prepared seafood dishes such as fresh crayfish or line fish with a beurreblanc sauce.
This flagship Cap Classique is made in the traditional method over four long years. As various altitudes create different microclimates, our winemakers carefully select chardonnay grapes from different vineyards on the farm. Made from 100% Chardonnay, expect a vibrant, fruity and crisp Cap Classique with a fine mousse.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2017 Sprankel is made from Chardonnay and offers a soft biscuity nose with notes of brioche and toasted almond before delightful aromas of lemon curd and green apple skin waft from the glass. Light to medium-bodied, the palate offers a lively and energetic mouthfeel with bright acidity that drives the mid-palate before concluding with a mouthwatering, food-friendly finish. This delightful little sparkler was aged on the lees for at least four years before disgorgement. It's wonderful."
