The Cap Classique Blanc de Blancs Brut from Graham Beck is a wonderful sparkling wine from South Africa, which is vinified from Chardonnay grapes (100%).
The bouquet exudes wonderfully fresh aromas of citrus fruit - lemon in particular comes to the fore. On the palate there is a fine moussing with strong notes of ripe mandarin, accompanied by complex aromas of brioche and some yeast. The finish is wonderfully creamy, elegant and long lasting.
Vinification of Blanc de Blancs Cap Classique
Only the must of the first pressing is used for this South African sparkling wine. After pressing the grapes, 50% are fermented in Pieces Champenoises (traditional 225 litre barrels). The strong aromas of the Blanc de Blancs are wonderfully accentuated. After the fermentation, the Chardonnay batches come together again and spend a second fermentation on the bottle - for at least 36 months on the yeast.
Food recommendation for the Graham Beck Blanc de Blancs
Enjoy this sparkling wine from South Africa with seafood, shellfish and fish - especially lobster, lobster, carpaccio of fish or sole. But also with desserts like soufflé, crêpe, cake and tarts this sparkling wine is a real pleasure.
