If it's good enough for Obama- it's good enough for us
The Graham Beck Cap Classique Brut has already pleased wine friends at some very special occasions. For example, it was served at Nelson Mandela’s inauguration and Barack Obama’s presidential victory to the celebrating people. Celebrate with us and get enticed by pleasant citrus notes and a fine perlage. On the palate, light yeast notes also become apparent. The finish of this sparkling wine is fresh and tingling.
A wonderful sparkling wine for celebrations – simply fantastic with caviar. We also recommend lighter dishes such as salad or shell fish.
The Graham Beck Cap Classique Brut is a cuvee made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Both grape varieties entice gourmets with their noble aroma and elegance. The Méthode Cap Classique is a South African sparkling wine which was created according to the traditional method and where the second fermentation takes place in the bottle.
Graham Beck is located in the breathtaking Breede River Valley and is part of the popular Route 62 which guides visitors alongside some of the most beautiful sights of this South African region. On the winery itself, the winemakers focus on minimal intervention regarding the cultivation in order to give the wines an authentic character of terroir and grape variety.
An ode to the delightful bubbles found in Champagne, the Méthode Cap Classique sparkling wine will not disappoint. Interestingly, this term, MCC, specifically refers to the South African method of double fermentation of white, rosé, or red sparkling wines to create the same effect as Champagne. The term Méthode Cap Classique has been used in South Africa since 1992. The name arose because wine-producers of champagne-like sparkling wines are not allowed to use the term “champagne” outside of the Franco-region, Champagne, due to objections from French wine-makers.
The Cap Classique Brut from Graham Beck matured between 15 and 18 months on the yeast in the bottle. It can be enjoyed right away yet will also keep for some years when stored well.
