The Kaapse Vonkel was the first traditional method sparkling wine produced in South Africa and it remains one of the best and certainly the best value. The classic Pinot Noir Chardonnay blend offering crisp bubbly refreshment but also a richer yeasty element that feels quite serious. For the same price as a bottle of Prosecco...there's no competition really. L&S (Feb 2020)
