Franschhoek (65%) and Robertson (35%).
A portion of the base wine (15%) is fermented in French oak barrels while a further 15% of reserve wine from previous vintages is also blended in. These techniques contribute to the complexity and elegance of the finished product – as does the extended time on lees, 85 months minimum – or seven years in layman’s terms!
Colmant Absolu NV is the pinnacle of the range: a Blanc de Blanc with zero dosage and extended lees maturation of 85 months.
