Pale gold colour with a tinge of green and vivacious fine bubbles. Aromas of green apple, flint and brioche on the nose. The palate is clean and fresh with nuances of tart apples, limes and a hint of freshly cut blossoms. Has a generous mousse and a super fresh, zippy finish.

Fresh seafood and summer salads with salmon trout and soft cow’s or goat’s milk cream cheese.

 

 

Description

The grapes used in the Charles Beck Fairview Brut were selected from Fairview’s trellised vineyards on the slopes of Paarl Mountain. Hand-picked grapes, in the cool morning, were transported to the cellar in crates to ensure they were kept in the best possible condition. Very early picking date is preferred to ensure fresh natural acidity and neutral flavours from typically aromatic varieties.

The grapes were transferred to the press by hand and gently whole bunch pressed. Only the free run juice was used. After the juice settled, the clear juice was transferred to stainless steel tanks for fermentation. The blended wine was left on the lees in tanks for 5 months before bottling for second fermentation, which took place in the bottle under crown cap (traditional Cap Classique). The wine was left to mature on the lees for months before it was disgorged.
