Tasting Notes

Rich, creamy, yeasty nose, with a full, ripe, toasty flavour on the middle palate developing finesse and complexity on the aftertaste.

Ageing Potential

Monro Brut can age for at least 3 years from date of purchase. With age the wine softens in flavour, maintaining its sparkle, giving a fulfilling balance of age and fruit.

Blend Information

50% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir

In The Vineyard

Villiera, a family run winery, is situated in the Stellenbosch region, where the prevailing Mediterranean climate favours the growing of vines. All the fruit is grown on Villiera making the wines distinctive and unique. From the vineyard to the cellar, techniques are utilized that develop and retain the distinct aromas and flavours of the style.

Whenever conditions favour the production of fine sparkling wine we create Monro Brut our Prestige Cuvee. The 2001 vintage was suited to quality sparkling wine production.
