Van Loveren Methode Cap Classique Brut Rosé
Aromas of strawberry, cranberry and shortcake prevail. On the palate the wine is lively with a subtle mousse and lingering finish.
Grapes are from 12 year old vine in rich lime stone soil. Grapes were harvested by hand. Second fermentation is initiated in bottle with addition of sugar and special yeast. Nine months on its primary lees followed by 12 months on its secondary lees has added extra dimension to this MCC Rosé.
The Hennie Retief Snr acquired the farm Goudmyn in 1937 and renamed it in honor of Christina van Loveren, ancestor of his new bride Jean van Zyl. Today van Loveren is South Africa’s largest family owned and operated wine producer. At the helm are the four cousins who are expertly led by Phillip Retief.
The wine is ideal as an aperitif and will pair well with seafood, chicken, salads, and creamy pasta dishes.
