Affectionately dubbed the “President’s Choice”, the Brut NV was served at both Nelson Mandela’s inauguration and Barack Obama’s presidential win.

This delightful sparkling wine exudes light yeasty aromas, limey fresh fruit on the nose, and rich creamy complexity on the palate. This Brut NV is intended to cleanse the palate, stimulate the taste buds and provide the perfect aperitif.

    Description

    Graham Beck is a giant of the South African Wine scene and have firmly established themselves as one of the world’s leading sparkling wine houses. One of the foremost producers of Methode Cap Classique (MCC) – sparkling wine made in the Champagne method – Graham Beck are devoted to quality and consistency. Since the launch of their maiden MCC in 1991, their range of sparkling wines have been hailed by international icons such as Nelson Mandela and Barack Obama, as well as gaining an array of the industry’s most prestigious awards.

    Located in the Robertson region of South Africa, most of the work is done in the vineyard, where they strive for optimal ripeness and balance. “We focus on minimal intervention, allowing the authentic essence of the fruit and terroir to shine through in the final wine. The unique dry, cool climate of Robertson, combined with the rich limestone soils, produce wine with universal appeal and star quality,” says cellarmaster, Pieter ‘Bubbles’ Ferreira.

    This delightful sparkling wine exudes light yeasty aromas, limey fresh fruit on the nose, and rich creamy complexity on the palate. This Brut NV is intended to cleanse the palate, stimulate the taste buds and provide the perfect aperitif.

    Made from a blend of 51% Chardonnay and 49% Pinot Noir, the NV Brut begins with bright citrus tones of lemon peel, green and yellow apple skin and elements of citrus blossom and underripe pineapple. Medium-bodied, the palate is lively and crisp with energetic acidity and a bright, incredibly versatile mouthfeel. The Brut ends with a delightful and lingering finish that overdelivers at this price point. For twenty bucks, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better sparkler—until you try the Brut Rosé. 600,000 bottles were filled after spending 15 to 18 months on the lees before disgorgement.

    Graham Beck remains one of the most recognizable producers of Méthode Cap Classique and it is no wonder this particular bottling has earned the nickname the “President’s Choice,” as it was served at Nelson Mandela’s inauguration and Barack Obama’s presidential victory.
