John Platter ★★★★

 

Selected by SAA for service to their First and Business Class Passengers 2011 

This "Methode Cap Classique" (bottle fermented sparkling wine) is a blend of red and white grapes displaying the full, balanced yeasty complexity synonymous with a wine made in this style. The wine retains its fresh racy zestiness that is a result of crisp acidity and rich fruit.

TRADITION ROSE (SPARKLING)

This is the Tradition rose - rich in flavour with a long finish.  Joyful, rich pink colour, vivacious cascading bubbles and the full rich flavour of Pinot Noir combined with the elegance of Chardonnay and the uniqueness of Pinotage providing the colour.
