This appealing sparkling wine has all the finesse and freshness of a Sauvignon Blanc intertwined with the gentle sweetness of the Muscadel while keeping it’s crisp youthfulness intact. Low in alcohol, with its mouth-filing sweetness and clean finish , it is truly a sparkling wine to enliven any occasion.
Meticulous care has gone into making JC Le Roux Le Domaine – care which beins in the vineyard. The grapes are sourced from selected vineyards in the Western Cape planted at altitudes ranging from 50 to 300 metres above sea level. The Sauvignon Blanc and White Muscadel grapes are selected from different established vineyard sites to impart complexity to the wine. The White Muscadel and Sauvignon Blanc vineyards enjoy similar climatic conditions.
The grapes are harvested by hand at 21 and 22 degrees balling and placed in small baskets to prevent bruising. In the cellarthe juice of the two wines is kept separate and skin contact is allowed for two hours. After fermentation for 8 days, the sparkle is created by impregnating the wine with CO2.
