2009 Graham Beck Vintage Rose
Stellenbosch, South Africa
Crafted from 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay the Brut Rosé Vintage (Chardonnay). The two varietals each add their own special magic to the final blend – Chardonnay for fruit and elegance and Pinot Noir for length of flavour and a touch of colour. The delightful salmon pink colour perfectly complements the delicious strawberry fruit flavours. Savour the light yeasty aromas, good freshness on the nose and rich creamy complexity on the palate. Fine mousse and a great length of flavour round off this blushing stunner.
