Graham Beck’s Cuvée Clive selected by Tim Atkin as his Sparkling Wine of the Year


The Graham Beck team is delighted to announce that the Cuvée Clive 2011 was selected as Overall Sparkling Wine of the Year (97 points) by Tim Atkin, award-winning British journalist and Master of Wine, in his South Africa 2017 Special Report.

This well respected comprehensive annual publication shines the spotlight on SA’s top wines and winemakers. Atkin singled out Cap Classique as one of his most praiseworthy categories. This is not the first time he has selected the Cuvée Clive as his favourite SA sparkling wine – the 2009 was awarded the same honour in 2015 – proving yet again how consistent Graham Beck is in terms of world class quality.

Not to be outdone, the Blanc de Blancs 2012, Brut NV, Brut Zero 2012, Brut Rosé NV and Brut Rosé 2012 also all scored above 90 points.

“We are elated and proud – these results are yet another milestone in our extraordinary pursuit of the perfect bubble,” said a thrilled Pieter Ferreira, Graham Beck cellarmaster.
