Journeys End MCC Brut Reserve
This Method Cap Classique is the first sparkling with from Journey’s End, released to celebrate our 25th anniversary, and the 50th anniversary of South Africa’s Cap Classique.
Slightly unripe, healthy grapes are harvested early in the season by hand.
Whole bunches are deposited directly in the presses (pneumatic) and pressed very gently according to a Champagne pressing programme. Only the cuvee (the best quality juice) is used in the blend. After blending, yeast and sugar are added for a secondary fermentation in the bottle which takes 6 weeks, producing the magical bubble. The sparkling wine is matured in contact with the lees for an average of 18 months.
This Cap Classique (bottle fermented sparkling wine) is a blend of red and white grapes displaying the full, balanced yeasty complexity synonymous with a wine made in this style. The wine retains its fresh racy zestiness that is a result of crisp acidity and delicate fruit. Journey’s End MCC Brut can age for at least 2 years from date of purchase.
