For lovers of fine sparkling wine, the Graham Beck Vintage Collection personifies the ultimate in indulgent luxury. This bespoke limited-edition collection contains three extraordinary Cap Classique sparkling wines - Blanc de Blancs, Pinot Noir Rose and Ultra Brut - all representing the absolute best expression of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from a particular harvest, or year, to proudly and authentically reflect Graham Beck’s passionate pursuit of the perfect bubble.
Blanc de Blancs Vintage
One of the country’s most awarded sparkling wines, the Blanc de Blancs has received numerous prestigious accolades, one of which was being voted best bottle fermented sparkling wine in the world at the International Wine and Spirits Competition. This distinguished Cap Classique was crafted from hand selected Chardonnay clones on the Graham Beck Robertson estate, with its exceptional terroir and naturally limestone-rich soils.
Pinot Noir Vintage
A pioneering first for South Africa, whereby both varietals, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, were whole bunch pressed together – this award-winning Cap Classique proves its pedigree time and again both in local and international wine competitions. The Pinot Noir lends a berry-laden ripeness and subtle spiciness while the Chardonnay contributes creamy complexity.
The delightful salmon pink hue perfectly complements the delicious strawberry fruit flavours. Savour the light yeasty aromas, good freshness on the nose and rich creamy complexity on the palate. Fine mousse and a great length of flavour round off this blushing stunner.
A deliciously different bone-dry sparkling wine crafted without the use of additional sugar in the dosage – a Cap Classique in its purest form; unadorned and natural. Ultra-dry, crisp and refreshing displaying a vibrant bouquet of blueberries, almonds and an earthy spice with hints of brioche due to extended time on the lees.
