Graham Beck Brut Rosé Western Cape

SKU #1052437 Antonio Galloni

 Very pale orange-copper color. Bright, fresh raspberry and cherry aromas, along with a light leesy nuance. Tastes sweeter than the brut, with strong red berry flavors dominating. A bit weightier and broader but not better. Sweeter and softer on the finish too. (ST)  (6/2015)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The Non-Vintage Brut Rosé, an equal blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, has an attractive pale salmon color. The nose is light but nicely defined with rose petal and melon scents, while the palate is well-balanced with crisp acidity and generous strawberry and red cherry notes toward the finish.  (10/2014)

Wine & Spirits

 A blend of 60 percent chardonnay and 40 percent pinot noir vinified in the classical method, this is a gentle, full-bodied rosé with sweet cherry fruit and fine bubbles. It finishes clean, a good match for grilled shrimp and romesco sauce.  (8/2012)

Wine Enthusiast

 An attractive pale-salmon color, this pretty sparkling rosé offers scents of peach pit, lime peel, strawberry hull and melon rind that transfer seamlessly to the brisk and lively palate. High carbonation and bright acidity keeps the finish fresh and mouthwatering.  (12/2014)

Wine Spectator

 Peach, white cherry and bergamot notes mingle here, backed by a hint of watermelon rind on the lightly coarse finish. (Web Only—2014)

Year after year this is a great value in sparkling wine. It has won over many faithful customers with its easy to drink nature, soft expressive fruit, juicy acidity and fine bubbles. Made in the traditional method of secondary bottle fermentation. A wonderful value and a great party selection!

Watermelon pink color with a hint of silver. Nose offers aromas of yeast, and raspberries.Tiny dispersed bubbles, with a creamy mousse. Fruity, yet dry with crisp acidity. Flavors of raspberries, cherries, with a slight mineral notes. There's a bit of citrus on the back palate for me. Short-medium finish. Great QPR!

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.
