Africa, a sparkling wine which is made in the traditional Champagne
style is known as a Methode Cap Classique, or MCC. The most common
wines to be used for this method are the Sauvignon Blanc and the
Chenin Blanc, but the use of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir have been on
the increase. In addition to the MCC, South African wine growers
can also make wine using the Charmat method.
