SILVERTHORN CAP CLASSIQUE "THE JEWEL BOX" 2014Silverthorn
Multi-award winning MCC from John Loubser (previously Cellar Master at Steenberg). With more than 220 sparkling wine producers in SA, Silverthorn is right at the top of the tree. It’s a complex sparkling wine from 60% Chardonnay & 40% Pinot Noir that spends well over 3 years on the lees. The result is hints of strawberry, classic brioche notes and a lovely, fine mousse. Rich yet dry on the palate and wonderfully balanced. Only 3,300 bottles were made. Awarded 95 pts from Tim Atkin.
