Cape Winemakers Guild

Villiera Shooting Star 2007

Slightly unripe, healthy fruit was whole bunch pressed in a pneumatic bag press. Only the Cuvee (500 Litres/ton) was settled and naturally fermented. After stabilisation and addition of liqueur de tirage, the wine was bottled for second fermentation. After 2 years on the lees, this sparkling wine was riddled and disgorged. Dosage ensured perfect balance and a further 1 year on the cork has resulted in greater harmony. Tasting note: Rich, creamy, yeasty nose with a full, ripe toasty flavour on the palate, developing finesse and complexity on the aftertaste. Powerful and bracing to drink now but could develop more intensity with another year in the bottle.
