Food Pairings for Beck Graham Sauvignon Blanc Pheasant's Run
Graham Beck is a giant of the South African wine scene and has led the country's thundering success since the end of Apartheid in 1994, a year that saw Nelson Mandela toast his inauguration as President with a flute of Beck's Brut NV. Fizz remains a key part of the Beck portfolio and the sparkling wines are rightly recognised as among the best in the New World. Based in Robertson, a second cellar in Franschhoek has been built to further extend the company's potential. Pieter 'Bubbles' Ferreira retains overall control of the winemaking with the talented Erika Obermeyer and Irene Waller heading up the Franschhoek and Robertson wineries respectively. The name is that of the farm in Durbanville, Fisante Kraal; meaning the gathering of pheasants. This wine is a true expression of the vineyard showing great character of white fruit, pears and litchis, followed by a wonderful fruity finsh on the palate. Serve with Parma (or Serrano) ham and fresh figs, chargrilled chicken over an open fire, pasta with an asparagus pesto.
