Boschendal Grand Cuvee Brut holds aromas of fresh green apple and hints of citrus supported by discreet almond biscotti and brioche typical to classic bottle-fermented sparkling wine style. Extended lees contact gives a full and creamy mouthfeel with elegant minerality, good balance and a seamless finish
The grapes were harvested early at lower sugar levels to achieve the bracing freshness required for the making of base wine for a classic Méthode Cap Classique. Grapes were handpicked in the cool dawn and placed in small lug boxes to ensure the fruit was not damaged during transportation to the cellar. Grapes were then whole-bunch pressed separately. Only premium quality juice was used, which means that only the first 500 litres per ton were extracted for this beautiful wine.
