Description: The foundation for the success of the Graham Beck brand was laid in 1983 when the late Graham Beck purchased Madeba, a farm located outside the Western Cape town of Robertson. It was his ardent ambition to establish a world-class winery from grape to glass. The entire process of producing a Graham Beck Cap Classique relies on meticulous attention to detail, dedication to authenticity, precision timing and plenty of patience. Graham Beck sparkling wine are passionately pursuing the perfect bubble – a golden thread of excellence runs throughout the entire process and portfolio. The term Cap Classique has been used in South Africa since 1992. The name is derived from the fact that, by law, sparkling wines are not allowed to be called “Champagnes” in SA, although we use exactly the same methods as in France – giving rise to: Cap (Cape) Classique (classic French method). It has become a prestigious category that’s exclusive to South Africa. For those who do not like dry sparkling wine, the Graham Beck Bliss Nectar is a fine example of self-indulgence. Fresh notes of ripe citrus and stone fruit compliments enchanting hints of butterscotch, dried honey, and praline.
Food pairings: Aperitif, foie gras, dried or fresh fruits, nuts, shellfish, spicy cuisine, desserts, etc.
