The 2011 Cuvee, the Steenberg Lady R, is made in the traditional French method of second fermentation in the bottle and is designated Méthode Cap Classique. The grapes were hand-picked at low sugar levels. The Pinot Noir base wine has a delicate light pink colour with a fine strawberry flavour and makes up 70% of the blend. The remaining 30% is made up of barrel-fermented Chardonnay.
