Celebrate #CapClassiqueDay with your favourite Steenberg bubbly.


Raise a glass of Steenberg’s finest to the start of spring and celebrate the glory of

South African bubbly on #CapClassiqueDay, Tuesday, 1 September.


Joining fellow producers of fine bottle fermented sparkling wine in this annual

celebration of the diversity and splendour of Cap Classique wines, Steenberg gives

you a reason to celebrate with an inviting 20% spring special for the entire month of

September.



Perfected by time in the tradition of French Champagne, it takes a minimum of

twelve months for the base wine to be transformed into a vibrant Cap Classique. The

magic happens during a second fermentation in the bottle where the lively bubbles

are created and captured to form a fine mousse, allowing the bubbly to develop its

signature yeasty character.


Steenberg 1682 Chardonnay MCC is a richly layered Blanc de Blancs that matures

for up to 18 months on the lees (spent yeast cells) to reach its full potential. The

result is an alluring Cap Classique with Granny Smith apple, candied lemon rind and

white peach wafting from your flute. The palate is lively with zesty acidity layered

with lemon cordial, honeyed nectarines, toasted croissant and pistachio.


“Our Brut Chardonnay MCC exudes freshness and fruit purity with great finesse and

complexity. It’s the perfect way to celebrate spring,” says Cellarmaster Elunda

Basson.



Crowned South Africa’s Best Rosé at the 2019 Amorim Cap Classique Challenge,

Steenberg 1682 Pinot Noir MCC strikes an elegant pose with its blushing hue and

beguiling scents of raspberry jelly, wild strawberry sorbet, red apple skin and toasted

brioche. Its ultra-fine mousse lifts the raspberry-like aromas and the creamy texture,

in perfect balance with bright acidity, lingers long after the last sip.


With the hallmark of quality of the iconic Steenberg swan embossed on every bottle,

you will want to sip these prized bubblies all spring and summer long.


For the entire month of September, Steenberg 1682 Brut Chardonnay MCC is

available at R152, and Steenberg 1682 Pinot Noir MCC at R196 at the Steenberg

tasting room. Steenberg’s refreshing Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc is also available at

a special spring price of R116. For online purchases visit
