Brut Zero

Brut Zero - Graham Beck

Brut Zero represents the ultimate transparency in premium Méthode Cap Classique. This extra special cuvée was created without the use of dosage resulting in a deliciously different and more natural style of bubbly. With no added sugar, what remains is a sparkling wine in its purist form. This style of wine can only be made in truly exceptional vintages. This exceptional and highly exclusive wine (a blend of 87% Chardonnay and 13% Pinot Noir) remained on the lees for 72 months (six 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 – these having been almost non-existent a few years ago. It’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. “Making this style of sparkling wine is a challenge and a risk: there is no margin for error in a zero dosage wine,” explains Graham Beck cellarmaster Pieter Ferreira. “That’s why there are so few of them – it’s an avant-garde style.”
