Quoin Rock Festive Methode Cap Classique 2020
Hand-picked grapes are whole-bunch-pressed and the juice moved to stainless steel tanks, where natural fermentation started. The base wine was matured in Stainless steel tanks for 7 to 8 months. Regular lees stiring applied. 2nd fermentation in the bottle. The wine was bottle-aged on the lees for 18 months, then disgorged and given a further 6 months bottle maturation before being released.
Prominent notes of green apple, honey-oats, biscuits and lime are supported by interesting mineral characters on the nose. The delicate mousse and tiny, persistent bubbles complement the crisp, refreshing acidity and creamy palate of this elegant Extra Dry style MCC.
While this wine is a perfect match to salmon tartare, oysters and sushi, it can be enjoyed on its own and at any time and at any occasion!
