"Really exceptional fizz that was very obviously aged for four years on nourishing lees. Eighty per cent Chardonnay. Clean, fresh aromas of brioche. You could buy ahead for a summer gathering and it should still be rewarding.", Jancis Robinson, MW, FT Weekend Magazine, 15th December 2018

Multi award winning sparkler. In September 2018 Claudia 2012 won the Amorim MCC (Methode Cap Classique) Challenge in Cape Town, top of no less than 127 entries. In late October it then won the trophy for best South African Sparkling Wine in the prestigious Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships 2018 (CSWWC for short!). Here was their note: "Great gunpowdery-toastiness on the nose, then with smoky notes and pristine fruit on the palate. Lovely lean structure. Very long and linear. An elegant wine".

"80% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir. Aged for four years on lees. Dosage 6 g/l. 50% of what they produce is fizz.
Very good autolysis and pretty tart. Clean and fresh. Much more impressive than the reds from this address. Brioche and masses of acidity. GV. 16.5/20", Jancis Robinson, MW, jancisrobinson.com, 5th November 2018

From 80% Chardonay and 20% Pinot Noir, this is a seriously good value sparkling wine. Made in the Champagne method, with four years on its lees and another under cork, it stands comparison with plenty of far more expensive vintage Champagnes: yeasty, creamy and with great breadth on the palate. Now-2021.
