Cap Classique – South Africa’s Shining Star with Cathy Van Zyl MW Virtual Event

Topic: Cap Classique – South Africa’s Shining Star with Cathy Van Zyl MW
Time: Thursday 13th August 7pm UK Time, 8pm South African Standard Time

It’s the perfect weather for a chilled bottle of something fizzy. In my glass, a delicious Methode Cap Classique (MCC) Rose from Paul René in Robertson, South Africa.

To many of us MCC is a relative newcomer on the ever-growing traditional sparkling scene but next year South Africa will celebrate 50 years since its creation.

Unable to use the term Method Champenoise (or any mention of the Champagne region), the South African growers who drew inspiration from the French region came up with the ‘Classic Cape Methode’ or in French, Methode Cap Classic. The pioneering credit goes to the Simonsig Estate.
