Winemaking and Maturation

Colmant Brut Reserve NV is a blend of Pinot Noir (50%) and Chardonnay (50%) grapes grown in Franschhoek, Robertson and Elgin. A portion of the base wine – just 10% – was fermented in French oak barrels for additional structure and integrated acidity. A further 20% of the blend comprises reserve wines from previous vintages, specially selected to enhance complexity, maturity and consistency as the wine ages. Each bottle of Brut Reserve NV matures for 30 months minimum at a steady 14°C before it is released. It can be enjoyed now but will develop beautifully over four to five years.

Tasting Notes

Delicate with a mellow spicy toas ness, appealing lemon and brioche typicity and so scents of mature stone fruit.

Fresh, crisp entry with a beautiful balance of citrus vivacity and acidity complementing the yeasty depth and fresh-baked bread flavours. Structured and elegantly refined, the wine retains its poise to a long, smooth and rounded finish.
