Winemaker: Peter Ferreira. For an aged, vintage MCC, this still boasts impeccably fresh aromas of crisp yellow apple and pear, laced with mature hints of peach pit, toast and baking spice. The carbonation is aggressive yet fine, resulting in a smooth, mouthfilling mousse and a crisp, lively finish. Chardonnay dominant, with 19% Pinot Noir, this is a stunning MCC that will continue to hold well through 2020.
