About this Item

Big Dog VIII Méthode Cap Classique, 2017
36 (6 x 6) 750ml

“We’re inquisitive, we’re daring, we’re experimental, and I think that’s what I like. I like pushing the boundaries; I like bringing art into it as long as the final product is pure and beautiful.” - John Loubser

71% Chardonnay, 29% Pinot Noir

Made in the traditional Cap Classique Method, both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were whole bunch harvested and pressed. The Chardonnay portion was barrel fermented and aged in old French oak barrels to enhance the complexity and richness, while the Pinot Noir was cold fermented in stainless steel tanks in order to accentuate the red apple characters. After blending, the wine was bottle fermented and aged on the lees for 52 months. The wine was aged on the cork for 9 months before the auction day.

Tasting Notes: Big Dog VIII is a rich and complex wine, made without compromising finesse and elegance. The nose has enticing roasted almond and marzipan notes from the Chardonnay and red apple from the Pinot Noir.

For maximum reward and expression drink from 2024 onwards.
