An absolute steal for such a terrific sparkling wine! Toasty and crisp. Buy several cases for your summer parties. This is a blend of pinot noir and chardonnay grapes. There's a white pear lift on the finish. Graham Beck is considered one of South Africa's finest producer of sparkling wine. This is a blend of 54/46 of pinot noir and chardonnay.

Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This is a great “Buy by the case” option for seasonal gatherings. Offering superb value. Traditional method bubbly vinified from South African Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Dry, crisp, balanced with mouthwatering acidity. Big toasted croissant aromatics complement the green apple and a hint of lime zest. Pairs well with smoked salmon or almost anything. Tasted a bottle which was disgorged July 2016 , in December 2017. 90 points.
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This delightful sparkling wine is made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir varietals. Delicate apple, lemon zest nose, with apple, lemon zest, and croissant on palate. Great fizz.
Tasted Feb. 2017
