Graham Beck, Blanc de Blancs 750ml 2013South Africa, Western Cape
'Around half of the base wine for this refined Robertson bubbly was oak-fermented with a portion of new wood. Still youthful at four years’ old, it has nuanced vanilla spice, citrusedged acidity and small, graceful bubbles. 2019-24' – Tim Atkin SA Special Report 2018, 94/100
'Rich aromas of fresh lime and ripe apricot fruit on the nose. An exciting fine mousse with an explosion of tangerines on the palate. Great brioche and yeast complexity broaden the palate, leading to a long, elegant finish.' – Winemaker
Specific Chardonnay clones are selected from our vineyards planted on soils with a high natural limestone content and calcareous deposits. This ensures a low pH and high natural acidity in the young base wines. Yield is between 8-10 ton/ha.
The Chardonnay is hand selected and hand-picked at 19.0 to 20.0.Brix during the third week of January. Grapes are picked into lug boxes and then transferred to fruit bins for transport to the cellar, where the whole bunches are tipped into the presses and undergoes a gentle and slow pressing cycle to extract the juice as softly as possible.
