News from the LCBO

Graham Beck Brut Rosé NV South Africa 11.5%
Pinot Noir/Chard $15-20 LCBO

Graham Beck died just a few weeks back. Born in 1929 he was a revolutionary in South Africa and can definitely be credited with moving the wine industry forward in that country. At the LCBO this bottle was just so beautiful I couldn’t resist – especially after reading it’s made in the traditional method with the second fermentation in the bottle. Light raspberry and nuts on the nose but when it warms up you can smell the trademark South African ash! I like it a lot..but then again it’s rare I don’t like something without bubbles. Think grilled tuna. Fun, summery, light – totally decent.
