STELLENRUST - Chenin Blanc Sparkling Brut
A wine for any celebratory occasion. It is made in the 'Prosecco' - style - with 2nd fermentation in the tank.
It pairs excellently with fresh oysters with cranberry dressing or spicy seafood dishes and proves to be great company for fresh garden salads with a coriander twist.
34-year-old Muscat de Alexandrie vineyards (bush vine), dryland granite, Bottelary
The juice is fermented extremely cold in a tank and then allowed lees maturation for about 3 months before finishing and bottling. The residual sugar is rounded to perfection by a splash of Muscat de Alexandrie just before bottling to deliver an exotic richness to the lovely apple and fresh lime acidity of Chenin Blanc.
With our mother being Italian, the influence from Prosecco styles of tank fermented, Charmat method, Italian sparkling wines were called for seeing that we already produce sparkling wine in the bottle fermented version.
