Cap Classique Producers Association
 




Grapes are selected from a diversity of regions in the Cape, resulting in highly individual styles. Only specific white and red grape varieties are used to ensure delicate fruit and rich complexity. Grape Selection in the vineyards ensures that only perfectly healthy grapes are handpicked and brought to the cellar.

Whole bunch pressing is at the heart of the winemaking process, with only the first pressing, our cuveť, used to make the various base wines destined to be called Cap Classique. Individual base wines and blends are tasted annually by the Associationís own members to ensure that the final wine is of a high quality.

Once bottled, the bottles ferment and mature horizontally in cool, dark cellars for a minimum of twelve months. There are individual members who ensure much longer yeast contact time, depending on the style and vintage. After riddling and disgorging, Cap Classique wines are left to mature on the cork for some time, to ensure integration and balance. This commitment to quality is evident in your glass every time a Cap Classique cork is popped.
