With vineyards on four farms in three distinct viticultural regions in the Western Cape, Graham Beck’s two estates – the original Robertson Cellar and the Franschhoek Cellar – now operate in tandem, while the cellar master, Pieter Ferreira and the respective winemakers, Erika Obermeyer (Franschhoek) and Pierre de Klerk (Robertson), continue to express the individuality, sophistication and passion for which they are renowned.
For those who do not like it dry, the Graham Beck Demi-Sec is a fine excuse for self indulgence and frivolity. “Light yeasty aromas, with hints of butterscotch, honey and praline, this delectable bubbly will stimulate your sweeter senses.” Blend: Chardonnay 54%, Pinot Noir 46% Cellar Treatment: Whole bunch pressing ensures fractional 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 15 months yeast contact time before disgorgement. Special selection of liquer d’expedition was added to produce this delectable demi-sec.
