Motley Cru Classic Cuvée

English Sparkling Wine 

The Motley Cru Classic Cuvée is made from a classic blend of the three traditional "Champagne" grape varieties including 48% Chardonnay, 36% Pinot Noir and 16% Pinot Meunier. The grapes are all hand picked and gently pressed. The wine is then aged for over 3 years on its lees.

The Story 

Each bottle has a story.

Each of our labels has a unique story behind it. This sparkling Classic Cuvée was named in honour of the "motley crew" of rugby players, all shapes and sizes that helped us to plant the vineyard. We use a lot of pheasant characters in our labels this is to capture the humorous antics and personalities of the pheasants that roam the Estate. The idea that one would be driving a Shelby Cobra seemed only natural, it happens to be one of the Estate owner's favourite cars.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

“We had an amazing day on the Wine Safari and it was unlike any vineyard tour I have done before. We loved visiting all the different parts of the vineyard and sampling drinks hidden along the way. Lunch with a view was fantastic even despite the weather! Ben and all the family were really friendly and informative. We have already recommended to friends and family and look forward to coming back ourselves!”
