Belle Rebelle Mariëtte MCC Brut Rosé 2018
“A traditional MCC from Rawsonville, created by award-winning winemaker, Mariëtte Stofberg.”
The Mariëtte MCC Brut Rose is wonderfully complex with pink-golden hues and a constant stream of delicate bubbles and a lively mousse. Made traditionally using Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the grapes are harvested by hand then whole bunch pressed. The free-run juice was allowed to settle overnight using pectolytic enzymes which improves the overall aroma and colour of the wine. Fermentation took place separately in stainless steel tanks for 15 days, whilst the second fermentation took place in bottle where the wine matured on the lees for 40 months.
The Pinot Noir gives complexity and length to the wine while the Chardonnay adds fruit character and elegance.
A well-balanced, elegant MCC with red fruit aromas on the nose and a crisp acidity.
57.2% Pinot Noir, 42.8% Chardonnay
