It’s here … at last! Nitida, one of South Africa’s most successful boutique cellars, located in Cape Town’s splendid Durbanville Wine Valley, has finally unveiled its long-awaited 100% Pinot Noir bubbly – The Grande Matriarch MCC 2015 – in all its amber splendour!
After three years of hard work, we are finally releasing our very first 100% Pinot Noir bubbles, The Grande Matriarch. During the final stages of getting this wine ready, we realised that everyone’s expectations of a blush bubbly are very different and upon further investigation, we also noted that the other 100% Pinot Noir bubblies on the shelves are also not what we had envisioned.

“This gave us a clean canvas to make a serious style Method Cap Classique that ticked all the boxes of what we expect of a blush bubbly – a truly unique Nitida wine.”
Adds Nitida owner Bernhard Veller: “We couldn’t be prouder of this superlative MCC and, by way of coincidence, we released it last Friday on International Champagne Day, a fitting day for such a great bubbly.”
The tasting notes for The Grande Matriarch MCC describe it as “exuberant, pretty and generous. Delightful fine effervescence accentuates ripe raspberry and cherry within rosewater. Just a hint of marmalade which culminates in a memorable tautness. Perfect for that romantic evening, just add significant other and smoked salmon.”
The Grande Matriarch MCC 2015 – priced at R225 a bottle – is now available from Nitida’s cellar or via their website’s wine shop.
