Isn’t good inexpensive bubbly one of the most difficult wines to find? Here's one that easily passes muster. The blend is 50 percent Chardonnay and 50 percent Pinot Noir, and is grown on the famous limestone soils of Robertson. How they manage to make a wine this fine and delicate in a climate that hot is a testament to the exceptional skill cellarmaster Peter Ferreira and his team. Peter and his team believe that “quality is a journey not a destination.” You can see that expression of quality in this methode champenoise bubbly. Light yeasty aromas, pale gold in color with a frothy mousse, it is dry, fresh and fruity with a cleansing element to it. The flavors are subtle and deep, clean and long with a rich creamy complexity on the palate. It will be very difficult to find another non-Champagne sparkler this good for this price.
Wine maker notes
A Graham Beck classic. This Méthode Cap Classique is made at the Robertson Cellar from a blend of 50% chardonnay and 50% pinot noir. The two varieties were blended separately and then crossblended, bottled and left for 24 months to undergo secondary fermentation in the bottle.

Food pairing
Great with seafood and light meats.
