Family‐owned Graham Beck sparkling wines are 100% Méthode Cap Classique which is the South African term for méthode champenoise. The Brut NV spends a minimum of two years bottle aging on the lees before disgorgement and is 100% hand-harvested estate Pinot Noir & Chardonnay.

The Brut NV is an iconic wine in South Africa and abroad. This is the wine which was served at Nelson Mandela’s historic presidential inauguration. It is also favored by the Obamas who selected it to toast his election as president of the United States.

Graham Beck’s Robertson estate, Madeba, is situated in the breathtaking Breede River Valley bordering the semi-arid Little Karoo region. The farm is located on the famous Route 62, a meandering country road which takes visitors on an unforgettable tour of the region’s plentiful attractions. At the Robertson cellar, Graham Beck focuses on minimal intervention, allowing the authentic essence of the fruit and terroir to shine through in the final wine.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This bubbly has a beautiful salmon pink hue. Noticeable ripe blueberries and a subtle spiciness from the Pinot Noir with creamy complexity from the Chardonnay. An explosion of raspberry fruit and slight honeysuckle flavours on the palate, with a persistant yet delicate mousse.

Vineyard Notes
The Pinot Noir grapes for this bubbly were harvested from hand selected coastal vineyards near False Bay- planted on decomposed granite. The Chardonnay from our Robertson Estate vineyards, growing in soil with a high natural limestone content.
Winemaker Notes
A delicious medley of 96% Pinot Noir and 4% Chardonnay. The former contributes complexity and length of flavour while the latter imparts elegance ad fruit intensity.
