NV Saltare Methode Cap Classique Brut Nature, Western Cape, South Africa

Crisp, fresh rose and lavender with apple mousse on the nose; flavours of white peach, green apple, orange rind; a clean finish and exceptional length. Perfect as an aperitif.



This Brut Nature is a fresh wine perfect on it’s own anytime during the day and amazing with oysters and other seafood. It spends 18 to 24 months on the lees and they do not add any sugar or sulphur when it is disgorged. The dates of bottling and disgorgement are printed on each label to give you the exact time the bottle has spent on the lees.


Saltare means 'to dance' in Latin. The name reflects movement, grace, simplicity - and joy. It started one day as a final year viticulture student when Carla and her classmates had to disgorge their very own MCC bottles: "I was captivated! When I had the opportunity to make my first batch of MCC several years later the magic repeated itself when my friends helped to pick the grapes by hand. Afterwards in the cellar, we danced on the grapes to squeeze out the juice" and Saltare was born.

Saltare is a boutique winery in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Grapes are carefully selected from five different vineyards across the Western Cape and transported to the cellar in Stellenbosch where winemaker Carla Pauw applies her art. Each vineyard tells a story about the hands that tend to them. The cellar is located along the banks of the Eerste River close to the centre of town.
