Add To Your WishlistJacques Bruére Cuvée Rosé Brut 2011
Located in the heart of the beautiful Robertson valley – a valley of wines and roses – lies Bon Courage Estate, home to some of South Africa’s finest wines, renowned for their great depth and concentration, a result of the ideal soil and climatic conditions that prevail in this region and recognized both locally and internationally for their exceptional quality.
Although ”tradition” plays a big role at Bon Courage Estate, careful but extensive modernization has allowed André and his son Jacques to combine the best of traditional methods with those of the modern age.
The base wine was kept on the lees for 8 months initiallyduring the first fermentation. 10% of the Chardonnay wasBarrel Fermented. The “magic of the bubbles” begins during the2nd fermentation that occurs in the bottle thereby extending maturationon the lees for 36 – 48 months. After“disgorgement” (removal of the yeast lees) and “dosage” (addingbase wine and sugar) the final product is left on the cork andthen released.
A wine for all occasions, not just the “special” ones – compliments fresh oysters, sushi, poached salmon or any seafood based canapés.
