Cape Winemakers Guild

Silverthorn Big Dog V Methode Cap Classique 2014

Made in the traditional Cap Classique method, both the Chardonnay and the Pinot Noir grapes were whole bunch harvested and pressed. The Chardonnay portion was barrel fermented and aged in old French oak barrels to enhance the creaminess and complexity, while the Pinot Noir portion was cold fermented in stainless steel in order to accentuate the red apple characters. After blending, the wine was bottle fermented and aged on the lees for 50 months. The wine was aged on the cork for nine months.

Tasting Notes: The aim with Big Dog V is to create a rich and complex bubbly without compromising finesse and elegance. An enticing roasted almond, marzipan and cookie spice bouquet supported by a creamy palate.
