Graham Beck is another
one of our new favorite
producers. We have featured
the Chardonnay and the Brut
in previous newsletters and this
Cabernet Sauvignon is another
gem. Grown in the Robertson
appellation in Western Cape,
Gamekeeper is an exotic, dense
wine with rich mocha and coffee
flavors that explode on the
palate. The finish lasts and lasts.
The winery has moved to protect
some of the land they own from
erosion and development setting aside half for native plants
and wild life. The three thousand eight hundred hectare farm
was recently the second winery in South Africa to be conferred
Champion Status by the Biodiversity and Wine Initiative. Some
of the revenue from this great wine with its beautiful label will go
to this effort. We found another star from our winemaker friend,
Pieter in South Africa.
|Pair this classically styled Cab with traditional fare such as osso bucco, hearty risottos or more exotic options such as North African dishes or spicy Moroccan tagines.
