Pieter Cruythoff Brut Rose Sparkling
Riebeek Cellars
South Africa - Western Cape - Coastal Region - Swartland

While Pieter Cuythoff humbly named the valley after his patron, Jan van Riebeeck, Riebeek Cellars feels it is only fitting that this wine, which expresses the best of its valley, should carry the name of its founder. So, in honor of Mr. Cruythoff, this range of fine wine bears his name.

Bright red berry notes and a hint of spice is balanced by a luxurious texture & an elegant, lingering, dry finish.

Coastal Region - Swartland
Wine Type
94% Chardonnay, 4% Pinot Noir and 2% Shiraz
Age of vines
Between 11 and 20 years old.
Agricultural Practices
The Chardonnay & Pinot Noir grapes are crushed together. To ensure an array of layered fruit flavors and to capture freshness, we use only free run juice from the crushed grapes. The juice is cold fermented with selected Champagne yeast, blend with a touch of ‘spicy’ Shiraz and then left on the gross lees for 6 months where it undergoes malolactic fermentation and develops the distinct sparkling wine flavors. After the wine is stabilized and filtered it is bottled with CO2 for a Charmat style sparkling wine.
6,000 (9-liter cases)

perfect with a variety of dishes including rich chocolate desserts.
