Silverthorn Big Dog VI Méthode Cap Classique 2015

70% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir

Wine of Origin Robertson 

Made in the traditional Cap Classique method, both the Chardonnay and the Pinot Noir were whole bunch harvested and pressed. The Chardonnay portion was barrel fermented and aged in old French oak to enhance complexity and richness, while the Pinot Noir was cold fermented in stainless steel to accentuate berry 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.

2020 saw Silverthorn Wines produce its first vintage in a specialised Cap Classique cellar on Silverthorn Farm.

Tasting Notes: Big Dog VI is a rich and complex Cap Classique, made without compromising finesse and elegance. The nose has enticing roasted almond and marzipan notes, supported by a succulent creamy palate.

For maximum reward and expression drink from 2022 onwards.

Winemaker: John Loubser
