NV Graham Beck Brut Rose, South Africa

$22.50

Description

A selection of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Beck’s Robertson Estate, Stellenbosch and other hand selected parcels from the
Western Cape.  Pinot Noir 58% Chardonnay 42%.  Both varietals are handpicked: Pinot Noir at 19° brix for complexity and
length of flavor and Chardonnay at 19.5°brix for fruit and elegance.

Whole bunch pressing of both varietals ensured that only the quality juice went into fermentation. The two varietals were then fermented separately. The unique silver-pink hue is obtained from an enzymatic reaction during the transport of the Pinot Noir fruit to the cellar. This lends sufficient time for the gentle color extraction of this Rosé NV. After fermentation, the portions are blended and then lightly fined and bottled for the traditional secondary fermentation in bottle.  A long lees time resulted in subtle yeasty characters, with a burst of berry and cherry flavor.

This wine has a unique pale silver-pink hue. Aromas of raspberries, cherries and a few secondary whiffs of minerality. A lively mousse, but fine in the mouth, with subtle red berry flavors enlivened by bright acidity. Brisk, yet 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.
