There are 49 million bubbles in each bottle of this single-vineyard Blanc de Blancs, and Noble Hill puts years of artisan craftsmanship and expertise into every last bead. The resulting wine is the height of sophistication and elegance, aged on the lees for 24 months with ripe citrus and biscuit aromas.

Grapes for this Blanc de Blancs come from a single hectare of Chardonnay growing in decomposed granite soil. The Chardonnay clone planted here is of Champagne origin, making it exceptionally well-suited to the creation of traditional method sparkling wine (known in South Africa as Méthode Cap Classique).

Upon arrival at the the grapes are pressed gently and only the cuvée, the softest and most refined juice, is used for fermentation.

Fruit notes include melon, pineapple, and hibiscus flower. Mineral notes elicit flint stone covered in moss. The structure of the wine is linear with racy acidity balanced by rich fruit. The bubbles are elegant and finely formed.
