Colmant Brut Chardonnay NV
About The Wine
This blend is a beautiful composition of 100% Chardonnay grapes, harvested from carefully selected vineyards in the Franschhoek and Robertson regions, using grapes which would yield the best qualities of finesse, freshness and elegance. Out of the 80% base wines from the current year’s harvest, 15% were barrel fermented, contributing to an exotic dimension of wooded characteristics in the blend. 20% of the composition comes from a special selection of the previous year’s harvest which was kept to mature in prime quality French oak barrels since fermentation, further contributing to the intense complexity and perfect harmony of the wine. This wine spends the longest time maturing in our cellar, with a minimum of 45 months on the lees, giving ample time for the maturation of the creamy and brioche characteristics. It has great evolution potential for up to six years.
John Platter Wine Guide 5 Stars! “Ultra-fine blanc de blancs heads up impressive range. NV sophisticated and uncompromising, almost bone-dry with oaked portion (20%) and striking acidity enlivening roasted nut and Golden Delicious apple appeal, energising the satin mousse. 10% reserve wine, 45 months on lees.”
