SKAAMGESIGGIE PINOT NOIR BRUT 2020
Our Cap Classique takes the name Skaamgesiggie or bashful Sugarbush as it is affectionately known, a very rare species of (Protea pudens) with unique downward hanging flowers. This timid flower is endemic to the Strandveld biosphere and is so endangered that it has been classified as a ‘red data’ species.
This delicate Cap Classique is made in the traditional method from Pinot Noir grapes and shows notes of strawberry, cherry and oyster shell and has a fine, lingering mousse which delights the palate.
Enjoy on its own or with oysters, salads, sushi, salmon and trout and duck breast.
Served very well chilled, ideally 4-8 degrees Celsius. Drink now until 2025.
