MENU's Wine of the Week. Nitída The Grande Matriarch 2015

The 2015 Grande Matriarch MCC from Nitída in Durbanville is, unusually for a bubbly, 100% Pinot Noir and it so impressed and surprised us that we have made it our wine of the week. It has cherry and raspberry on the elegant nose and on the palate the best expression of cherry ever, so quaffable. It has good length and depth, elegance and lovely maturity from 39 months on the lees. So exciting and so delicious. R225 on the farm and as you see, also available in magnums for great celebrations

It honours owner Bernhard Veller’s late mother, who helped them buy the farm 20 years ago. It was then a sheep farm, and is now a very successful wine farm. There is also The Matriarch MCC made from 50/50 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
