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
Golden peach in colour, with a vibrant bouquet of cherries, blueberries, almonds and earthy spice. A delicate yet complex palate abounds with red berry, yellow stone fruit and hints of brioche. A great balance and a long finish with a slightly salty finish.

Vineyard Notes
The Pinot Noir grapes for this wine were selected from the Slanghoek valley, whereas the Chardonnay was produced on our limestone-rich soils in Robertson.
Winemaker Notes
Brut Zero represents the ultimate transparency in premium Méthode Cap Classique. This extra special cuvée was created without the use of dosage. With no added sugar, what remains is a sparkling wine in its purist form; unadorned and natural. This style of wine can only be made in truly exceptional vintages.
