J.C. Le Roux Scintilla is the flagship of South Africa’s oldest house dedicated to sparkling wine, and has become known for its style, depth of character and a Méthode Cap Classique crafted with great care.
In recognition as one of the country’s top producers, the J.C. Le Roux Scintilla Vintage Reserve 2014 has been awarded with a Trophy for Best Sparkling Wine at the 2019 Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show recently.
Made from 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir grapes, hand-selected from two prime vineyard blocks, the wine is made according to the French tradition of secondary fermentation in the bottle and spends 36 months on the lees to create the elegant, signature bubbles.
Soft and luxurious on the palate, the beautiful freshness of citrus and buttered toast leads to delicate bubbles that coat the mouth. The MCC is made with longevity and ageing potential in mind and will age gracefully during additional bottle maturation.
The J.C. Le Roux Scintilla 2014 retails for about R300 and is available from www.vinoteque.co.za.
