Graham Beck Brut Non-Vintage

Graham Beck Brut Non-Vintage

“Light yeasty aromas, good fruit on the nose, and rich creamy complexity on the palate. Fine mousse gives freshness and finesse.”

Great with seafood and light meats.

in the vineyard : Chardonnay selected from the riverside and limestone vineyards – with high natural lime in the soils producing 9 tons/ha. Pinot Noir planted in the loamy clay soils producing 10 tons/ha.

about the harvest: Both varietals are hand picked: Chardonnay at 18-19.5°B for fruit and elegance. Pinot Noir at 18.5-20°B for complexity and length of flavour.

in the cellar : Whole bunch pressing ensures refractional recovery. After settling of juice the two varieties are fermented separately. They are then crossblended along with reserve wine if necessary, bottled and left for a minimum 24 months yeast contact before disgorgement.
