Babylonstoren Babylonstoren Sprankel MCC
Méthode Cap Classique and Méthode Ancestrale (30) Unwooded vintage


The fith vintage of this delicious MCC. The grapes were whole-bunch pressed and the first fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks. The wine was kept on the thin lees for 7 months before bottling for the second fermentation. It was then kept on the lees for 54 months prior to disgorgement. ORGANOLEPTIC DESCRIPTION: Brut. COLOUR: Straw yellow with slight greenish tinge. BOUQUET: Golden Delicious apple, green lollipop, tropical tones as well as gentle biscuit and brioche flavours from the maturation on the lees. TASTE: Fresh and well-balanced with a very fine mousse and soft acidity. Delicious lemon and lime with beautiful minerality and lingering, crisp finish.

Sprankel perfectly complements cheese, fruit, salmon, shellfish and caviar. The smoothness of this sparkling wine also works beautifully with poultry and seafood dishes with light, buttery sauces.
