Darling Cellars Methode Cap Classique (archived)


Never a fast process, developing our Methodé Cap Classique was no exception to the rule. The Chenin Blanc grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness for a MCC, a little higher in acidity and not overripe to preserve the natural acidity and have a low alcohol. Secondary fermentation leads to the buildup of pressure and infusion of bubbles into the wine, making this a stunning, naturally bottle fermented, matured on lees MCC. Definitely wines to look out for, as they are only available from the cellar door and at selected outlets.

Darling Cellars MCC Blanc de Blanc Brut 2016

A pale golden color with lime green tinges gives a hint to the flavors that might follow. The bouquet displays buttery, toasty, ripe apples and citrus notes. Flavors follow through on the palate with a crisp, well balanced acidity and undertones of brioche and butterscotch due to extended lees contact.
