We know SA makes great wine, but I can’t emphasise enough how good our Méthode Cap Classique (MCC) sparkling wines are. With our unique soils and climate, they are dierent in flavour to their French counterparts, but the quality is all there. New on the shelves is Groot Phesantekraal Blanc de Blanc MCC 2015 (R140), made from 100% Chardonnay, with flavours of citrus and biscuit. I also love Alvi’s Drift Thornlands Brut MCC (R136)
– it’s crisp, dry and very fresh.
