Klein Constania

MCC Brut 2009

MCC Brut 2009

The excellent vintage conditions of 2009 resulted in the production of one of our best Blanc de Blancs, and the first since Klein Constantia’s Brut ‘000’ was released to celebrate the millennium.

Harvesting of grapes occured between 18-19 balling in early February. The wine was bottled for the second fermentation in September 2008 and allowed to mature for 24 months before the first degorging took place.

Tasting Notes

Fresh pale hues with a green tinge. Very lively in appearance. The nose shows brioche autolysis characters with light citrus aromas. The palate is rich, well-structured and has a fine, persistent bead.

Maturation

Whilst enjoyable on release, it will improve well for a further 5 years from the date of vintage.


Barrel Aging

Whole bunch pressing and fermentation in 500L barrels. Barrel maturation for 12 months on gross lees. 100% Malolactic fermentation.
