Our Bubbly

PAUL RENÉ CAP CLASSIQUE – A PROUD ADDITION TO THE

WONDERFONTEIN COLLECTION

From the Robertson wine valley comes a new trend-setting Bubbly enjoyed by those who appreciate the finer things in life.  Expect to find it at exclusive dinner parties, uptown eateries and the tucked-away deli on the corner.  Farmer and bubbly producer, Henk van Niekerk, believes it is the break away from the traditional which propelled this CAP CLASSIQUE from its humble beginnings on Wonderfontein Estate, to the fridges and coolers of a new generation of bubbly enthusiasts.

From a young age Henk stole groceries from his mother’s kitchen for his field expeditions with his fellow boy scouts. His passion and enthusiasm for mixing various flavours in his style of cooking was already clear at that age. Many years later it was the PAUL RENÉ CAP CLASSIQUE experiment that surpassed all his expectations and is now his life’s passion and living dream.

After several years of research and planning to produce what goes into the bottle, it was left to his wife Monica to take care of the outside. As a little farm girl Monica spent days in her Grandmother’s art studio and the creative mind to create the unique PAUL RENÉ CAP CLASSIQUE look was no doubt founded there.

The loving couples’ smiles are synonymous with the brand and expect to smile too if you get the chance to taste Paul Rene.

The Paul René Cap Classique range comprises of a Brut Chardonnay, which is a Blanc de Blanc, secondly a Brut Rosé, which is a blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay. Our latest addition is the Paul René Nectar, which is also a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and has a sweet caramel finish.

Chardonnay grapes were hand picked in the early morning and then chilled overnight. Crate by crate they were passed into the press before the whole berries were crushed.

 This is only the beginning of a 3 year journey of detailed planning and careful attention to create a vintage of our PAUL RENÉ CAP CLASSIQUE Brut. Each bottle is fermented for no less than 20 months on the lees.
