A pale straw-colored MCC with vibrant intensity yet elegant and refined in style

Long gone are the days when MCC could only be enjoyed at weddings or important functions

Made for enjoyment, Laborie Le Grand Nectar is the perfect MCC for special moments, celebrations with friends and family or to enjoy well-chilled on a beautiful summer’s day. This pale straw-coloured MCC shows a vibrant intensity yet remains elegant and refined in style. The nose delivers prominent flavours of apple, orange blossom and nougat. The blend of 61% Chardonnay, 31% Pinot Noir and 8% Pinotage show perfectly integrated flavours of pear, creaminess, and hints of red berries which is further complemented by delicate, fine lingering bubbles.

A 10% portion of the Chardonnay was allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation whereafter the wine was blended and bottled for secondary fermentation in the bottle. This process was followed by bottle maturation of approximately 24 months which gives the wine beautiful complexity and depth on the nose and palate.

Long gone are the days when MCC could only be enjoyed at weddings or important functions. With the warmer summer days fast approaching, enjoy the Le Grand Nectar chilled, on its own, or pair it with delicately flavoured food, seafood dishes and entrées.

The Laborie MCC Le Grand Nectar (RRP - R127,00) and other wines in the range are available at select national retailers and the KWV Online Store.
