Tom Cannavan – Wine writer and experienced international wine judge visits Bot River

Tom Cannavan recently visited South Africa for his 2013 tour and spent the afternoon experiencing the  ‘Best of  Bot River’  tasting we had prepared for him.

Here is his review of the Genevieve MCC:

Genevieve, Methode Cap Classique 2010, South Africa
Specialises in Cap Classique sparkling wines. With only 10% abv, this cuvée is made from 100% Chardonnay. More yeasty autolytic notes here than the Wilderkrans, a touch of oak perhaps adding a creaminess and touch of buttery quality. On the palate it is creamier and richer too, with a delicious apple and snap of orange and lemon to the acidity. Stays full, but very nicely dry and crisp, very citrusy and juicy. 89/100.
Tom Cannavan comes with a long list of  credentials – Wine writer, broadcaster and publisher of http://wine-pages.com . Founder of http://www.thewinegang.com.
