Montpellier MCC Chardonnay 2017
Established in 1714 by two Frenchmen from the city Montpellier in France, this historic Cape Dutch Wine Estate recently celebrated its 300th anniversary. Steeped in a rich history of wine making, Montpellier is renowned for producing wines with integrity and character representative of the Tulbagh Valley terroir. The Montpellier MCC Chardonnay 2017 is a traditional Chardonnay that rested for 5 years on the lees before disgorgement. The lively mousse radiates hints of elegant lime and citrusy notes, tingling the tastebuds with a long, yeasty finish. The nose is fruity with hints of dried apricot following through and the palate is well-rounded and dry with flavours of dried banana, oak, and granny smith apple. This sparkling wine is delicious with prosciutto, hot smoked fish, tapas, and fish pâté.
