Cap Classique (colloquially known as MCC) is our South African ‘version’ of Champagne. It is made using the same technical , sophisticated and traditional method as Champagne with the wine undergoing second fermentation in bottles and being matured for a minimum period of twelve months.
We cannot call our bubbles Champagne as our grapes are not from the Champagne region of France. So the only difference is that we use our local grapes and unique terroir to produce our Cap Classique.
With our incredible wine-growing regions and innovative winemakers, many of South Africa’s Cap Classiques are considered to be on par with (or some say better than) French Champagne.
