Each of these wines demonstrates its own authentic character, with exceptional individual attributes, yet every bubbly also displays the instantly recognisable hallmarks of a being honed in the unique Graham Beck Way.
The Non Vintage (NV) Collection
“Non Vintage” is a term used to refer to wines blended from multiple years. This style of wine reflects the signature of the house brand of Graham Beck. The ‘recipe’ remains unchanging and equal amounts of the base wines, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, are consistently used to maintain a specific house style. This tier expresses the aperitif character of the wine and is intended to cleanse the palate, stimulate the taste buds and entice you to progress to the ‘next level’ in your tasting journey as you savour the nuances and complexities of the Vintage Cap Classique range.
The Vintage Collection
The term “Vintage” refers to Cap Classique sparkling wine made from the harvest of a single year. This category of Graham Beck Cap Classiques is an expression of the very best selection of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from that specific year to authentically reflect the Vintage portfolio. In the Blanc de Blancs the best expression of Chardonnay is considered, while the unique character of the Rosé takes its specific fingerprint from the luscious Pinot Noir fruit which is its foundation varietal. The Brut Zero is only produced in exceptional vintages when we are permitted by Mother Nature to give expression to the extended lees contact required to compensate for the lack of dosage.
The Prestige Collection
As its name implies this category comprises the Cap Classique we deem to have reached the very zenith of our skills as ultra premium Cap Classique Sparkling Wine producers, namely our Cuvée Clive.
