Graham Beck the Joshua Shiraz/Viognier 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

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. This unique blend of Shiraz and Viognier reveals spiciness, hints of violets and liquorice flavours.

Sight: Clear, day bright, ruby, heavy concentration, no gas, sediment or particulate, medium viscosity. Nose: Clean, high intensity, new world, dark berry and dark tree fruit-blackberry, stewed prune, baked black razzberry. Dried leaves, smoke, chocolate, bramble and wet earth, oak. Pallete: Dry, med+ body, fruit is confirmed from nose, earth confirmed, aged in oak, med tannin, med + alcohol, med acid, long finish, moderate complexity. Im thinking it was like excelent lots of fruit flavors and wonderfull structure. It had a very earthy tone mixed in with the dark fruit that i found quite rustic.
