We are proud to announce that our Black Marble Hill Cap Classique 2016 is in the Top 10 of this year’s Prescient Cap Classique Report by Winemag.co.za
There were 83 entries received from 43 producers and these were tasted blind (labels out of sight) by a three-person panel, scoring done according to the 100-point quality scale.
Rhebokskloof scored 91 points (one of only 13 Cap Classique’s with a score higher than 90).
This blanc de blanc oozes complexity. Layer upon layer of different flavours and aromatics, from primary fruity aromatics to wonderful secondary biscuity autolytic characters, are quite prominent due to the extended time the wine spends on the lees. The wine has retained a lovely fizz and just enough sweetness to complete the wine and fill the palate.
Shortbread biscuits and golden delicious apple aromas serenade on the nose; ripe yellow plum flavours follow through on the palate layered with notes of honey and toasted brioche. Long bready finish with a creamy mousse and persistent bubble.
