Tasting Notes:

Shimmeringly pale, just a hint of lemon yellow and green-gold tinge, the mousse is delicate, doesn’t foam as much as murmer on the surface. Bubbles are persistent, some quite large others miniscule from all around the Riedal glass (the only way to enjoy this MCC). The nose is refined too, not richly yeasty as expected from more than four years on its lees, more subtle, evolving slowly. Aromas are fresh suggesting zesty acidity then follows a heavier, stone fruit note, especially ripe peach, and a hint of lemon butter.

Gerrit Maritz (founder) and founding partner Albert Ahrens consider themselves as boutique Cap Classique bubbly-makers. Ever since Gerrit’s university days, he discovered an appreciation for wine, which led to his own annual spring day “champagne” breakfast, a tradition and a celebration day he and his wife Ingrid and bubbly friends, still honor on the 1st of September at 06h15 every year. Gerrit build an underground cellar in 2004, knowing that one day the cellar will be filled with exceptional bubbly. In 2006 Gerrit met the partner he was looking for, Albert Ahrens, a brilliant winemaker who also shares the same passion for making one day his own MCC. A unique partnership was established and the dream of making bubbly became a reality.

The grapes for the GM&Ahrens MCC are harvested from thirteen different “wine pockets”, from all over the Western Cape area.

The grapes are carefully handpicked and lightly pressed in a basket press.

Only the first cuvee makes it to the barrels where it spends twelve months fermenting and maturing, where after it is transferred to the underground cellar in Franschhoek for second fermentation and further maturation for another four / five years.
