About This Wine
Graham Beck passed away in 2010, but his legacy of great winemaking lives on.
Beck was known for his unswerving work ethic, compassionate nature and infectious zest for life. When one was around him, it always seemed like a celebration — not to mention a good reason to raise a glass of bubbly.
Beck’s family is now working to carry on the tradition of quality-focused winemaking and unsurpassed conviviality. It’s a combination deliciously embodied in the Graham Beck “Cap Classique,” a sparkling wine crafted from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, fermented separately and then expertly blended.
Beck’s Chardonnay was grown in riverside vineyards with abundant limestone, while the Pinot Noir came from a coastal vineyard with loamy clay. The relatively cool climate of the Western Cape is ideal for those varieties, and the finished wine is of exceptional quality, with a fine mousse and a refreshing mouthfeel. It’s a wine worthy of a toast to Graham Beck.
