Paul has a passion for bottle-fermented sparkling wine and when his path crossed with Nic and Ferda a bond was quickly formed. A former school teacher with a passion for mathematics, Paul returned to the University of Stellenbosch and completed a BSc Oenology and Viticulture degree. During his winemaking studies he developed a keen interest and fascination with the science and art of bottle fermented sparkling wine and early in hie career decided to specialise in this exciting wine style. Soon after completing his studies Paul travelled to Europe to work and learn more about the fine art of bottle fermented sparkling wine in Franciacorta (Northern Italy), Côte des Blancs (in Champagne, France) and Germany.

The Cuvée selection is the finest tanks and barrel components of the vintage. These are elected through a blending and tasting of more than 23 components in a vintage. This Cap Classique has been matured for 61 months.

Food pairing
