Albert Ahrens drives up to 40,000km every year between a plethora of vineyards in the Cape, sourcing only the very best grapes for his growing range of tiny-batch wines. Along with Gerrit Maritz he makes this utterly stunning traditional method vintage bubbly, from fifteen different vineyards around the Western Cape. It is cellared for four years in Gerrit's purpose built cave in the heart of Franschhoek. As Albert knows from his vintages in Champagne, sparkling wine of this quality takes a lot of skill and patience (Albert and Gerrit began the project in 2006).
A traditional blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, bottled after one year of maturation in barrel, and a further three years on the lees in bottle. It gets no more than one gram of dosage, so a really dry style. Very mineral, sumptuous breadth of flavour, layers of peach and strawberries in the mix, and very fine mousse. It's an incredible achievement, and one of the finest sparkling wines ever made in South Africa. Just 3,200 bottles made.
