Blaauwklippen is Zinfandel”, says cellarmaster Rolf Zeitvogel at the release of what is believed to be South Africa’s only Zinfandel based MCC sparkling wine.
The ‘Diva’ is Blaauwklippen’s birthday present to mark their 333rd birthday this year and their tenth product based on Zinfandel. It is also their very first MCC. Why is it called ‘Diva’? “Well, when you work with Zinfandel, you learn a lesson every day, the cultivar has a temper”, says Rolf.
