Cederberg Blanc de Blancs MCC 2005

Made using traditional French methods. This wine was partially fermented in barrel and has been lying on the lees for 48 months. This brings to the fore a yeasty, biscuit like, aroma backed with fresh hints of citrus. Citrus aromas, in particular zesty lime, derived from using 100% Chardonnay. Expect a creamy sensation on the palate and endless ribbons of perfect bubbles.
