Noble Hill Cruxes Mataro Nova
Made in South Africa
Cruxes follows a non-traditional style based on the “nouveau” wines popularized in the Burgundian village of Beaujolais. We place whole bunches intact into the tank and leave them under cover of inert gas for a period of 18 days.
During this period a partial enzymatic fermentation produces the first 4-5% alcohol and gives the wine a zestful, delicate aroma.
Following this carbonic maceration the bunches are gently pressed and naturally fermented. The wine is bottled quickly, without oak contact. This wine has floral aromas offset by complex savory and earthy notes.
Light in color and on the palate, this wine is a celebration of a new vintage perfect for enjoyment with charcuterie and aged hard cheese after a long day of harvest.
Serve chilled. Some sedimentation may occur in the bottle.
