Colmant Mcc Sec Reserve Nv X 6
Elegantly luscious yet still classic, this blend offers an exotic twist to the Colmant style.
Colmant Sec Reserve NV is slightly off-dry
with lingering flavours of ripe citrus and sun-sweetened apple generosity.
On the eye
Pale gold with crystalline clarity.
On the nose
Understated lemon, dried apricot and gentle brush of hazelnut.
On the palate
Structured, poised mouthful of refreshing, bright citrus
and its acidity with rounded sun-kissed apple and pear flavours.
Franschhoek, Robertson and Elgin fruit were used in the 52% Pinot Noir and 48% Chardonnay blend.
Conforming to house style, a portion (10%) of the wine underwent fermentation in French oak barrels and 20% of reserve wine from previous vintages was blended in to enhance intensity and complexity.
Maturation on the lees took 24 months
at a constant temperature of 14°C.
The wine was then degorged with the addition of a generous liqueur de dosage
which added a unique twist
to the gentle aroma and flavour.
Dosage : 20,0 to 21,0 g of sugar per litre.
For Ultimate Enjoyment...
This bubbly is scrumptious on its own as an aperitif. We also recommend it as the perfect enhancer to Asiatic cuisine, spicy food and chocolate cheesecake.
