Graham Beck is a giant of the South African wine scene and has led the country's thundering success since the end of Apartheid in 1994, a year that saw Nelson Mandela toast his inauguration as President with a flute of Beck's Brut NV. Fizz remains a key part of the Beck portfolio and the sparkling wines are rightly recognised as among the best in the New World. Based in Robertson, a second cellar in Franschhoek has been built to further extend the company's potential. Pieter 'Bubbles' Ferreira retains overall control of the winemaking with the talented Erika Obermeyer and Irene Waller heading up the Franschhoek and Robertson wineries respectively. This wine is created from very ripe Chenin Blanc grapes. It has tropical fruit flavours of ripe pineapple, peahces and melon with some honey notes. A crisp, fresh and well- balanced white. This is excellent with fresh salmon or tuna steaks.
"Thatch & boiled sweet aromas; attractive vinosity & weight." Platter's South African Wine Guide, 2013
"Most of the cheaper chenins – not all of which are good – fall into the crisp, citrussy camp, and need to be bought and drunk young. A good example is Graham Beck's, the kind of wine to drink on a warm day with a platter of fresh shellfish or a crab sandwich. I've a lot of time for wines like that."
