Graham Beck Brut Sparkling Wine Western Cape

SKU #1052312 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The NV Brut that was disgorged in August 2015 after 18-20 months on the lees, has plenty of coconut and brioche on the nose, peach skin developing with time. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, nicely balanced with plenty of peach and apricot notes on the punter-friendly finish. Fine, well made sparkling wine for the masses, and at good value.

Vinous

 Strong, fresh mousse. Fresh, inviting white peach, lime and apple aromas are complicated by toasty lees and a hint of salinity. Frothy and fresh, delivering lovely lift to the apple and peach flavors. Delicious, fruit-driven, very youthful sparkling wine. (ST)  (6/2015)

Wine Enthusiast

 Here's a balanced, accessible and attractive sparkler that should be relatively easy to find, with more than 11,000 cases imported. Fresh aromas and flavors of green apple, orange peel and cracker are framed by lively acidity and high carbonation. Vibrant and mouthwatering... (LB)  (12/2014)

Wine Spectator

 A soft, friendly style, offering lots of brioche and apple notes. Broad, soft mousse marks the finish. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. (JM, Web-2011)

South Africa

- Now that it has adopted a multi-racial attitude, and now that the world has embraced its government and its exports, South Africa has become a major wine producer. Unfortunately, South Africa has had a difficult time joining the ranks of competitive winemaking countries. During the anti-apartheid sanctions in the 1980s, South African wine was dealt the huge blow when it was removed from the international market, and for political reasons it was quite difficult for wine producers to market wine to the black majority. Things are finally looking up for the wine industry here, and quality has never been higher. South Africa produces a grape cloned from Pinot Noir and Cinsault, called Pinotage, which is the country's unique varietal. Chenin Blanc (known as Steen) makes up one-third of its vines. Cabernet, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Shiraz are becoming increasingly popular as are Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Click for a list of bestselling items from South Africa.
