MÉTHODE CAP CLASSIQUE

LIBRA

CUVÉE BRUT

Behold the harmonious blend of tradition and innovation in every effervescent bubble of the Karoo Hoogland Méthode Cap Classique (MCC). The Libra MCC is in honour of Olivia, our eldest daughter.
Crafted from the same extraordinary Chardonnay that gave life to the Capricorn, this MCC is a testament to the versatility of our vines.

Elevated at a breathtaking 1200 meters above sea level, the ancient alluvial soils, rich with lime, lends a unique character to the Chardonnay grapes, creating a sparkling wine that dances on the palate with finesse and flair and captures the essence of this semi-desert region.
Raise a glass to Olivia, to family and to the stars that inspire us. Karoo Hoogland Libra MCC is not just a sparkling wine; it is a celebration of life, love, and the extraordinary journey we share under the Karoo sky.

Harvesting & Wine Making

The grapes were harvested at 19 brix during February 2022, very early in the morning. Once transported to the cellar, it was sorted by hand & whole bunch pressed. The juice was allowed to settle naturally without any enzymes added. Primary fermentation took place in a stainless steel tank to ensure freshness and primary fruit. We don’t do any malolactic fermentation. The wine is bottled to complete the second fermentation in the bottle and aged on the lees for at least 18 months. 

Batch selection disgorgement.

Bottling: 641 bottles were produced.
