Graham Beck Vintner’s Selection Brut – £13
Peter Morrell, Editor comments “I have know the well respected Graham Beck for several years. They use the Methode Cap Classique process to produce sparkling wines, it’s the same as Champagne production. The wine is made with the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. It pours a straw colour, and there is an abundance of bubbles that create a creamy mousse.
“The bouquet has pear and citrus aromas with hints of yeasty brioche. On the palate the wine has crisp apple notes with lime and nutty tones. The finish is bright and refreshing.
“Drink it as an aperitif or match with shellfish and summer salads.”
