MCC sparkling with a beautiful red color of Pinot Noir. It is made with the same manufacturing method and fermentation method (MCC) as the authentic Champagne region. Fresh and fruity notes of raspberry jelly, wild strawberry sorbet, red apple skin and toasted brioche. Very fine and fine bubbles with a raspberry-like aroma. A very well-balanced wine with a creamy texture, refreshing acidity, and a dry finish that you can enjoy while feeling the aftertaste.

Country of origin/production area
Western Cape, South Africa (Darling, Robertson)
Founded in 1682, it is the oldest winery in the Cape region. Steenberg is located in the cool Constantia Valley between Cape Town and Table Mountain, about 30 minutes outside of Cape Town. Steenberg means a mountain of stones, and in fact there is a rocky mountain nearby, and the complex terroir has produced numerous award-winning wines, including the representative Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, and bubbles. The owner has changed frequently since the first Catalina Ross, but in 2005 Graham Beck, the leading sparkling maker in South Africa, became the owner and continues to this day. A five-star luxury spa hotel, a luxury private villa, a golf course, and two restaurants are also located on the winery grounds with a wonderful view, making it a winery loved by celebrities around the world.
