This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was crafted from a selection of prime Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards from our Robertson Estate including a site located on the South-East facing slope of the Rooiberg Mountain that incorporates the game reserve on the Graham Beck property. The vines are planted on red Karoo soil which is also home to the delicate, yet tough fynbos that the game feed on next to the vineyard. Once in the cellar, the fruit isÂ destalked, gently crushed and fermented with 4 daily pump-overs to ensure maximum extraction.
Once dry, the juice is pressed and transferred into 2nd fill French and American Oak for malolactic fermentation in barrel. The wine is then kept for a further 9 months of maturation inÂ barrelÂ to gain complexity and a full mouthfeel. Great complexity of black berry fruit, dark chocolate and plums on the nose. This wine has a rich, juicy entry supported by firm tannins. An elegant creamy palate leads to a long lingering finish.R85.00
This exceptional and highly exclusive wine (a blend of 78% Chardonnay and 22% Pinot Noir) remained on the lees for 60 months (five years) before disgorgement. Elegant, fresh and lively, the Brut Zero is a study in rich minerality. Fresh green apples and hints of brioche, citrus and barely perceptible iris perfume develop on the mid-palate as the wine is left to stand. Brut Zero joins the ranks of the very few zero dosage wines â€“ these having been almost non-existent a few years ago. Itâ€™s a category gaining in popularity amongst chefs, sommeliers and food enthusiasts. Virtually sugar free, the natural salt affinity of this zero-dosage wine makes it the ideal partner to crustacean dishes and sushi.R370.00
Produced from 100% Chardonnay this delicious and versatile bubbly combines rich creamy aromas with hints of fresh lime fruit on the nose. On the palate you can expect an exciting fine mousse with an explosion of tangerines. Great brioche and yeast complexity broadens the palate leading to a long elegant finish.
An all round crowd pleaser and extremely versatile bubbly crafted from a selection of the classic MCC varieties, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
Both varietals were hand-picked: Chardonnay at 18-19.5Â°B for fruit and elegance and Pinot Noir at 18.5-20Â°B for complexity and length of flavour. In the cellar whole bunch pressing ensures fractional recovery. After settling of the juice the two varieties are fermented separately. They are then cross-blended along with reserve wine if necessary, bottled and left for 15 to 18 months yeast contact time before disgorgement. Light yeasty aromas and secondary tones of limey fresh fruit on the nose with rich creamy complexity on the palate. The exceptionally fine mousse contributes freshness and finesse.
Definitely one of our best sellers â€“ this wine epitomizes our dedication and passion to crafting world class MÃ©thode Champenoise style wines.R155.00

This delightful wine pays tribute to the bat eared fox, a fascinating little creature which feeds mainly on termites. Weâ€™re actively trying to conserve this unique species, which is indigenous to our Robertson estate, as they are often falsely identified as jackals and killed â€“ a practice we are striving to halt.
The grapes for this wine were hand harvested from vineyards in Paarl and Stellenbosch. The wine was fermented in open and closed fermenters with regular punch downs and pump-overs to ensure upfront fruit and soft extraction.

On the nose youâ€™ll encounter ripe cherry, strawberries and plums with ripe red berries and spices on the palate. A full structured and well balanced wine which rewards with a juicy yet elegant mouthfeel and silky tannins.

The label for this mouth-watering Merlot depicts the Cape clawless otter, a charming little creature which calls the Graham Beck Private Nature Reserve its home. Our efforts to restore the Vink River system which runs through the estate have seen a healthy re-population of this fascinating species.
