Spring means two things: sunny days and summer wines. If you are a wine lover then you are in for a real treat.
Premium drinks company Truman & Orange has recently launched their new Grace du Roi sparkling wines and Grace du Roi MCC’s (Mèthode Cap Classiques).
Truman and Orange founding owner, Rowan Leibbrandt says Grace du Roi is a new-age wine, made for the young, modern, confident female drinkers who are making their own decisions and buying their own drinks, rather than having them bought for her.
Using grapes chosen for their balance of sweetness and acidity and harvested at night to maintain their freshness, Leibbrandt says Grace du Roi sparkling wines offer a lively bubble, and a refreshing green apple and pear character, while the Rose variants offer a hint of raspberry and cream.
Explaining why Grace du Roi sparkling wines and MCC’s are set to shake up the South African bubbly scene, he says historically, the world of fine wine has been complicated, focused on the seriousness of the grape and how it’s produced, which is a very masculine approach.
