New Laborie Sparkling Methode Cap Classique Rose
Laborie Methode Cap Classique Rosé NV is now available in the UK for the first time.
This pale blush coloured bubbly joins Laborie MCC Blanc de Blancs, which has been in the UK for the last three years and in 2019, saw sales grow by 50%.
A Pinot Noir and Chardonnay blend, Laborie MCC Rosé shows prominent aromas of red berries, flambéed plum and pomegranate, with undertones of oyster shell on the nose. The palate is fresh and persistent with the lingering aftertaste of honey and grapefruit. Enjoy well chilled, on its own or with delicate seafood dishes, sushi and starters.
In the seventeenth century, the Tailleferts were a prosperous family in the district of La Bri, in the Poitou-Charentes area of France. Three years after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685, this French Huguenot family boarded the Dutch East India Company's ship, Oosterland, bound for the Cape, and in 1691 were granted the rights to a second farm in Paarl. Known today as Laborie it was originally called La Bri in tribute to the motherland.
South African wine producer, KWV bought Laborie in 1972 and immediately set about turning it into a world class estate. With their knowledge of French viticultural techniques, the Taillefert family laid a solid foundation of vineyards and outstanding wine production which we the team at KWV proudly continue today.
With a recommended retail price of £16.99, Laborie Methode Cap Classique Rosé NV is distributed in the UK by North South Wines, tel. 020 3871 9209.
