Description: All Villiera Estate Sparkling wines are fermented inside the bottle and lovingly rotated by hand as is the traditional way of making great champagnes. This Methode Cap Classique (bottle fermented sparkling wine) is a blend of red & white grapes displaying the full, balanced yeasty complexity synonymous with a wine made in this style. The wine retains its fresh racy zestiness that is a result of crisp acidity and rich fruit.
Production: For our Tradition, slightly unripe healthy grapes are pressed very gently using a Champagne pressing program. Only the cuvee (best quality juice) is used in the blend. After blending yeast and sugar are added for a secondary fermentation in the bottle which takes about six weeks, producing CO². The sparkling wine is matured in contact with the lees for about 18 months.
