The Graham Beck Brut Blanc de Blancs is made from 100% Chardonnay. This delicious and versatile South African "Champagne" combines rich creamy aromas with hints of fresh lime fruit in the nose. In the mouth you can expect an exciting fine mousse with an explosion of fruit. The Blanc de Blancs has a beautiful bouquet with lemon, hints of white peach and apple blossom that is very well defined and tempting. On the palate, the wine has subtle hints of dried mango and Golden Delicious. The palate is crispy and tight with a frugality that you can expect from a good Blanc de Blancs.

The grapes from this wine were hand-selected from the limestone vineyards on the Robertson estate. These vineyards have a high natural lime content in the soil, which guarantees a low pH and high natural acidity in the young basic wines. Only the premium quality juice is selected for fermentation. 50% of the cuvée is fermented in Champenoise 205 liter barrels to ensure richness and extra dimension of taste and creamy texture. Only 7% new barrels are added to the older barrels every year to ensure harmony during fermentation. After the wine has been fermented in barrels, it is then bottled for the second fermentation with yeast contact of at least 36 months for degorgement (removal of the yeast).

Delicious as an aperitif and also delicious with fish, soft white cheese and with a dessert with fruit.
