Graham Beck, Brut Rosé

(2022) This is an 'MCC', the designation for South Africa's quality, traditional method sparkling wines. It comes from the fizz-dedicated Graham Beck operation, a blend of mostly Pinot with Chardonnay, where the delicate pink hue comes from short contact of Pinot skins pre-ferment. With 9.8g/l of residual sugar it is certainly not sweet, but it is easy-going and approachable, the red fruits touching pulpy strawberry and raspberry, the mousse not too aggressive and the finish well balance. Better value at £14.99 on a Majestic deal, though there are numerous outher stockists - see the wine-searcher link below. Watch the video for more information and food-matching ideas.
