Chardonnay MCC (2018)
This 100% Chardonnay MCC is made in the traditional French Method Champenoise. It was whole bunch pressed and spent 2 years on the lease. Riddled and degorged, the dosage is French Champagne. It is a classic sparkling wine with extra fine bubbles, beautiful mousse and richness in texture. A wonderful yeastiness comes through on the nose and finishes with a slight butteriness.

Made by Canto Boutique wines from beautiful vineyards situated on the Vissershok Road from 15+ year old vines.
Canto wines came about when local owner Marinus Neethling had the opportunity to attain a piece of land in the picturesque Durbanville wine valley. Being an avid wine enthusiast, the quality of vineyards inspired what we have today as Canto boutique winery.
The farm is 18ha in size, and our vineyards are unique in the way that most of our wines come from old vines with small production and excellent quality. With the cool breezes from the Atlantic ocean keeping the climate mild, the ripening period is extended ensuring concentrated flavours in the grapes and resulting in wines with intense fruit. Rainfall is above average and together with the well drained soils with good water retention properties; there is no need to irrigate the vines.
Soils in the Durbanville are deep and nutrient rich which is a very favourable environment for root development.
