Bottle-fermented and aged on yeast lees, Angas Brut Premium Cuvee NV is a marvellous blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay. It displays a pale straw colour with slight green hints noticeable throughout the wine, and a 12% alcohol level. Lifted fragrances of strawberry, cream and biscuit characters from the Pinot Noir fruit makes the nose attractive, while the citrus notes, tight structure and fine acidity provided by the Chardonnay grapes on the palate counter-balance the aromas, leading to a lengthy and persistent climax. Made for drinking fresh and young, serve this wine chilled with Camembert cheese, bay scallops with garlic and parsley butter, and freshly-shucked oysters.
