Wine Type: Sparkling Wine
Winery: Graham Beck
Natalie's Score: 91/100
This so reminds me of prestige Champagne Rose -- at one fifth the price. A crisp, refreshing South African sparkling wine from one of this country's best producers of this style. Aromas of rose petal and field berries. Ultra dry. Pair with planked salmon.
Sparkling food pairings: smoked tuna omelet, smoked salmon, shellfish.

Operating out of the greater Western Cape area, Graham Beck have a diverse profile of wines. None are as beloved as their tier of sparkling wines, which are traditional amd so tasteful even Champagne lovers will appreciate what they deliver for a fraction of the price.
What a pretty colour! It has a vibrant orange hue to it. Fantastic candied orange peel, ginger, lemon, quince, and apple pie to the aromas. It is quite old now and spent significant time aging en tirage, so there is quite an array of old and youthful aromatics.
To the palate, the bubbles are superfine and persistent. It's very dry and has great balance in acidity and minerality. Lots of citrus, baked apple, marmalade, and. Pastry dough.
Aged, bone dry, and extremely refreshing. Don't keep it indefinitely, as it will lose its vitality sometime in the next decade. 2-4 years cellar time is the safe zone. Pair it with crab cakes or bbq poultry.

Lovely. Beautiful primary red fruit with bread yeast, citrus and a whiff of fresh cut grass. 91 points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
|From the Western Cape wine region, Graham Beck's Brut Rosé (2011) was disgorged in March 2017 Made in Méthode Cap Classique this is a crisp and refreshing South African sparkler made from one of that country's best sparkling wine producers. The 2011 Brut Rose is a blend of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay with mandarin orange and rose petal on the nose and palate. A pretty sparkling rosé to drink now. - Community Wine Reviews|
