Wine: Tamasa Grand Brut MCC (6)


Stellenbosch MCC 2017

Stellenbosch wine region

Eastern boundary of Stellenbosch

 Self-proclaimed by some as ‘South Africa’s newest champagne region.


  • This Interesting Brut MCC, that since 2010 has been made by winemaker Anton Smal. Held to the light, you will see a pale lemon tone shimmering through, with fine rising bubbles in appearance, the citrus, apple and tropical fruit aromas and flavours showed a different characteristic of a Sauvignon Blanc profile.
  • With a yeasty nose it surprises the senses, aided by 15 months on the lees and reinforced by over 3 years of bottle age. The appley nose hinted more at a Chardonnay Blanc de Blanc. The lemon flavours on the palate are balanced by a firm acidity and slight minerality to make for a pleasant and unique wine with an alc. content of 13.0% alc.
