We are proud to boast that Le Lude is the first winery in South Africa to produce the artisanal Agrafe®,
bottle-fermented MCC. Agrafe® (Tirage Liège) is the method of fermenting the wine under cork instead of crown cap.
This, in our opinion results in a more integrated aroma profile and texture. Over the past five years we have
planted and sourced grape varieties dedicated to making only the best Cap Classique. Le Lude’s first harvest took
place in 2012. In our search for the finest grapes we specially selected vineyards that express unique
terroir characteristics. We blend these unique terroirs to create a distinctive house style.
