Colmant Sec Reserve NV
Elegantly luscious yet still classic, this blend offers an exotic twist to the Colmant style.
Franschhoek, Robertson, and Elgin fruit were used in the 52% Pinot Noir and 48% Chardonnay blend. A portion (10%) of the wine underwent fermentation in French oak barrels and 20% of reserve wine from previous vintages was blended in to enhance intensity and complexity. Maturation time on lees is 24 months minimum. The wine was then degorged with the addition of a generous liqueur de dosage which added a unique twist to the gentle aroma and flavour.
Colmant Sec Reserve NV is slightly off-dry with lingering flavours of ripe citrus and sun-sweetened apple generosity.
