2011 Graham Beck Rose Brut Sparkling South Africa image

Variety: Chardonnay 55%, Pinot Noir 45%



Area of origin: Robertson and Stellenbosch, Western Cape, South Africa.



Vineyard: A selection of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from our own estate grown vineyards in Robertson, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch.



Harvest Details: Both varietals are hand picked: Pinot Noir at 19°B for complexity and length of flavour and Chardonnay at 19.5°B for fruit and elegance.



Cellar: Produced in the Méthode Cap Classique cellar, Robertson.



Cellar Treatment: Whole bunch pressing with fractional recovery from the whole bunches ensured that only the quality juice went into fermentation. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir fermented separately. Colour is obtained by an enzymatic reaction during the transport of the Pinot Noir fruit to the process. This is sufficient time for gentle colour extraction for this NV Rosé. After fermentation the portions are blended and then lightly fined and bottled for the secondary fermentation. This wine was given sufficient time on lees to develop subtle yeasty characters but to burst with berry and cherry flavour.



Analysis: Alcohol: 11.7 % vol Residual Sugar: 13.80 g/l pH: 3.23 Total Acid: 6.06 g/l
