Festive Franschhoek Fizz

Festive fizz from Franschhoek
“One glass of champagne and I smile, two and I grin, but three I’m ever so ready to sin.”
We foresee a lot of bubbly in the future! Christmas and New Year’s Eve are just around the corner, and no celebration is complete without festive fizz.  Here are some of our favourites from the Franschhoek Valley
We love Môreson’s range of bubblies. For New Year’s Eve indulge in the
Môreson One Vintage Méthode Cap Classique 2007. http://www.moreson.co.za/products-page/methode-cap-classique/moreson-one-2007-vintage-methode-cap-classique/
Or grab a magnum of Miss Molly for R145! A steal deal for this delicious MCC, ‘highlights of citrus – specifically lemon and lime – with a hint of pineapple. This is all supported by biscuity and yeasty undertones.’
Morena MCC also has a stellar range of sparkle. http://www.morena-mcc.com/ For something different try the Morena Ancienne Brut it’s made in the traditional way with aged brandy in the dosage.
On the pink side of life, the Graham Beck Brut Rose is all strawberries and cream. http://www.grahambeckwines.co.za/ And the Colmant Cap Classique Brut Chardonnay will wake up the palate before the Christmas feast with its lemony, floral and green apple notes

    Brandy may be served neat or on the rocks (over ice cubes). It may be added to other beverages to make several popular cocktails; these include the Brandy Alexander, the Sidecar, the Brandy Daisy, and the Brandy Old Fashioned.-
