A blend of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir. This Cap Classique Rosé delights the mind as much as the eye and evokes an air of romance with its delicate salmon pink hue. This is a timeless Cap Classique with great elegance and complexity. Delicate yeasty tones, layered with toast and ripe fruit are enlivened by a firm mousse and persistent bead. The wine impacts a wonderful foamy mouthful of black fruit flavours with a long lingering aftertaste. It is perfect with chicken, seafood and oysters.
