Lizelle Gerber talks about their Boschendal MCC Jean Le Long

The chardonnay for this cuvée is exclusively selected from cooler climate vineyards. Harvest commenced early at lower sugar levels to achieve the desired natural freshness for the making of pristine base wine in the classical Méthode Cap Classique style. Pale gold with a flourish of tiny bubbles exploding with enticing lemon cream, pink grapefruit and discreet almond biscotti aromas that carry through to an intricate palate detailed with a tight core of lemon and orange zest, rich roast nuts and flattering minerality finishing with extraordinary length and freshness.
