Welgemeend Sparkling Pinotage 2016

Welgemeend Sparkling Symphony Pinotage 2016

This fun fizz is fluorescent pink and froths invitingly in the glass. It’s a 100% Pinotage, 12.5% abv, sweet with around 30g/L residual sugar and made by the ‘Technique Contemporain’.

Unfortunately the bubbles dispersed almost immediately, and to me a glass without a stream of rising bubbles isn’t a fizz

Despite the back label  describing this as a ‘classic bubbly’  Technique Contemporain is Welgemeend’s own name for carbonation.

I think this needed more pressure to retain bubbles, but it has no pretensions other than as a party wine and it looks very pretty.
