Skinny fit.

At R500 a bottle, the Kaaimansgat Blanc de Blancs 2016 is the top of the range offering from Méthode Cap Classique dedicated cellar Krone. Grapes from Elandskloof situated at 700m above sea level, the wine was left on the lees for 36 months before disgorgement.

The nose shows a pronounced apple character to go with hints of brioche and almond while the palate is lean and steely with a fine mousse. It’s rather an extreme rendition which will divide opinion – I happen to like it.

Editor’s rating: 90/100.

    At R500 these guys are starting to compete in a league that they’re not in – Champagne. If I had R500 and had to choose between Le Mesnil (sold at Wine Cellar for R575), Vueve Cliquot (varying between R469 and R520 at various retailers) and the Krone, my money wouldn’t be spent on MCC. Patriotism only goes that far when it comes to bubbles
