Graham Beck Blanc de Blanc Cuvee 2017

Bright lime green colour with rich aromas of fresh limes, green apples, pears and lemon zest on the nose. Delicately balanced flavors of succulent citrus, brioche and spice combines with yeasty complexity, broadening the palate with layered textures and leading to a long finish

Platter 2018: 4 1/2 Stars

Veritas 2017: Double Gold

CELLAR TREATMENT:
Whole bunch pressing ensures fractional recovery. Only the cuvee juice (premium quality juice) was selected for fermentation. Of the cuvee, 50% was fermented in specific Piece Champenoise 205L barrels to ensure richness and extra dimension of flavour and a creamy texture. Only 7% new barrels are added each year to the balance of older barrels to ensure harmony of the wood integration during fermentation. After fermentation, the wine was aged in barrels for 5 months and then selectively blended with other parcels of the best Chardonnay that were fermented in stainless steel. The final blended base wine was then bottled for the second fermentation with yeast contact of at least 48 months before degorgement.

VINEYARD:
The fruit for this wine was hand selected and hand harvested from our very
specific Chardonnay Clonal block on our Robertson Estate. The soils in which
these vineyards grow have a rich natural limestone content. These clones
have different flavour profiles contributing to the unique complexity and
minerality in the base wines. Yield was between 8-10 ton/ha.
HARVEST DETAILS:
The Chardonnay was hand-picked at 19.0 to 20.0 Brix during the third week of
January. Grapes were picked into lug boxes and then transferred to fruit bins for
transport to the cellar, where the whole bunches were tipped into the presses
and underwent a gentle and slow pressing cycle to extract the juice as softly as
possible.
