Method Cap Classique
In South Africa, a sparkling wine which is made in the traditional Champagne style is known as a "Methode Cap Classique". Some of the common wines made using this method include the Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc.
The name "Cap Classique" came from the classic art of winemaking which was introduced to the Cape by the French Huguenots, and the first bottle-fermented sparkling wine produced at the Cape was called Kaapse Vonkel (Cape Sparkle).
Lovers of South African bottle-fermented bubbly can rest assured that all Norman Goodfellows Cap Classique wines are made according to the traditional time-honoured method with quality standards that promise to be better than ever.
