The Malcolm Ainscough Collection Limited Release Wines
Limited Release Brut Methodé Cap Classique 2011
The extremely elegant vintage Cap Classique made from the classical blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The nose shows a clean combination of green apples, brioche and ruby grapefruit aromas. The fine mousse gives way to beautiful biscuit, tangerine and toasted nut flavours on the palate, rounded with a creamy complexity and refreshing crispness.
Limited Release Sauvignon Blanc 2014
Our maiden vintage Sauvignon Blanc shows a distinctive nose of mineral characteristics followed by ripened citrus and herbaceous aromas. The palate is balanced and complex with a broad, ripened edge. Stylish and sophisticated with youthful fruit focus and a linear, austere finish. A true reflection of typicity to the variety.
Limited Release Chardonnay 2014
This wooded Chardonnay has an inviting nose of honeyed citrus, potpourri and peach blossoms with a subtle hint of beeswax. The palate is poised and sophisticated, with fresh chalky limestone, candied orange peel and a ginger infused honey backbone. The oak regime was carefully managed to allow perfect balance and integration. A vibrant and refined flavour combination and finish.
Limited Release Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
This Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegantly fragrant wine with abundant black current, liquorice and sweet cassis. Soft, smokey oak softens the black pepper vibrancy and lends an exotic lift to the nose. The palate pliant, textural and moderately tannic, the wine is elegant, balanced and refined. The fruit component is in harmony with the structure and the flavours are fresh and uplifting.
Limited Release Premium Blend 2014
This maiden release of our flagship red blend is a powerful statement wine. Made from a combination of our native South African Pinotage, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz grapes. The nose dominated by rich, black and red macerated fruits, well supported by cherry tobacco aromas and a subtle minty herbaceousness. The palate explosive in its opulent ripe tannins, nicely supported by superb structure, spiciness and a firm, smooth finish.
Maiden Vintage, launched at the Explorers Club, New York City, October 7th 2015.
