Light, yeasty aromas with a lemon cream richness and biscuit on the palate follow tones of citrus and

Vinification
This Méthod Cap Classique was made in the traditional way. The grapes are harvested by hand into bins
the morning of 15 February 2014 at 19.8˚B. The grapes are then cooled before it is pressed whole bunch.
The free-run juice was allowed to settle overnight at 8°Celsius using pectolytic enzymes. The juice is
covered with carbon dioxide blankets to prevent oxidation. The wine is then inoculated, and
fermentation took place in stainless steels tanks at a constant temperature of 12°C for approximately 15
days. Second fermentation took place in the bottle where after it was matured on the lees for 50 months.

Food Pairing
Being a rich and complexed MCC it will pair beautiful with exotic seafood dishes such as fish
carpaccio, caviar, oysters and sushi. Mariëtte MCC and shellfish with a rich sauce is also a
match made in heaven or try it just on its own to celebrate any occasion.
