Sparkling Brut Rosé, Graham Beck, Western Cape, NV

Tasting Note: This wine has a unique pale silver-pink hue. Aromas of raspberries & cherries with a lively mousse, with subtle red berry flavors and bright acidity. Delicate on the palate, bursting with flavors of freshly crushed berries and hints of oyster shell. Flirtatious and fun, yet elegant and structured, it’s perfect for all seasons and settings.

Winery: Founded in 1983, Graham Beck Wines and its Robertson estate represent the Beck Family's dedication to excellence. At its helm today is Graham’s son Antony Beck, who remains deeply invested in the business and focused on maintaining the brand's global reputation for impeccable quality and constant innovation. Evident in the sparkling wine portfolio is Antony's deep love for fine wines, specifically Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, the two foundation varietals of Graham Beck's prestigious Méthode Cap Classique production.

Affectionately known as “Mr Bubbles”, Winemaker Pieter Ferreira eats, drinks and breathes bubbles! Pieter has been with the team from the very first vintage and has been instrumental in cementing Graham Beck as one of the world’s leading producers of premium Méthode Cap Classique style sparkling wines.

 

Pinot Noir "Estate" Paul Cluver, Elgin, 2017

Tasting note: This wine has a lovely luminosity – the color is bright crimson. The nose has delicate earthy aromas combined with red and dark berry flavors. On the palate these characteristics follow through combining with interesting savoury notes and just a touch of oak on the finish.

Winery: Paul Cluver Wines is a family-owned and family-run winery, focused on producing world class wines that reflect the uniqueness of the cool-climate Elgin terroir.  The family is proud to have pioneered the Elgin appellation and for being a leader in sustainable farming. The Elgin valley is nestled in an inland mountain plateau with close proximity to the ocean.   It is situated on the De Rust estate, a property in the family since 1896.  Paul Cluver Wines were first planted in 1987 and in 1990 and became the first wines bottled as wine of origin in Elgin.  

Red Blend "The Chocolate Block" Boekenhoutskloof, Swartland, 2018 

Tasting Note: The nose is dense and brooding, with ripe plums and blackberry and attractive whiffs of liquorice, violets, cocoa and mint. The black fruit and perfume of the nose follow through onto a rich, savory palate with flavors of dark cherry, red currant, black olives and cured meat. 

Winery: A maverick spirit, Boekenhoutskloof’s Winemaker Marc Kent is the driving force behind the wines within the Boekenhoutskloof stable. He is unafraid to experiment with the unconventional – however, his principal commitment is to quality on every level and in every detail.

The quest to understand the name of this wine and the wine itself is now the stuff of legend. Marc is not about to reveal all, although he will say that the style of the wine is a reflection of his belief that the Cape, with its Mediterranean climate, is eminently suited to blended reds. The make-up of this wine is tweaked from vintage to vintage to best reflect the season and the ancient vines of great character that are an integral part of the wine’s charm and personality.
