Table Bay MCC Blanc de Blancs
By Christian Eedes, 27 August 2013
Yesterday the launch of the 2014 edition of the Best Value Wine Guide sponsored by Ultra Liquors. Wines have to sell for R80 or under and then rate 2½ Stars or better to be included in the book and 472 out of 931 submitted made the cut.
At the function, a Méthode Cap Classique Blanc de Blancs under Ultra’s own label Table Bay impressed. Citrus and pronounced brioche, rich and full with a creamy mousse, it costs R69.99 and picked up a rating of 4½ Stars. Who made it? “From a reputable producer in Robertson” is all the guide reveals so I’m guessing Bon Courage or Graham Beck.
