The scintillating prestige cuvée of The House of J.C. Le Roux, Scintilla 2003, continues to sparkle as one of South Africa’s top Méthode Cap Classiques with another Veritas Gold medal added to its impressive cache of awards.
Overall MCC champion of the 2013 Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show and the 2012 Amorim Cap Classique Challenge, J.C. Le Roux Scintilla 2003, has become the proud flag bearer of South Africa’s leading home of sparkling wine.    

“This is our second consecutive Veritas gold medal for the 2003 Scintilla vintage which just shows that our flagship Cap Classique can go the distance”, says cellarmaster Elunda Basson.

Only produced in exceptional vintages, Scintilla 2003 is luxuriously smooth and well-balanced with an elegant, dry palate and an explosion of delicate bubbles that will uplift any occasion. A blend of Chardonnay (75%) and Pinot noir (25%), this Cap Classique has spent an unbelievable ten years on the lees, resulting in rich layers of complexity and flavours with a superior, smooth character.

This ultra-sophisticated J.C. Le Roux Scintilla 2003 is available at fine wine outlets and sells at The House of J.C. Le Roux at R160. It is also available exclusively at Makro in an elegant gift pack perfect for the festive season at R149.95.
