'Cape sparklers are improving, with Beck ahead of the pack with this stylish citric champagne lookalike; expect more ripeness of fruit and less acidity than the real thing.' Rose Murray Brown MW, The Scotsman
'I've always enjoyed Graham Beck's sparklers, made in the champagne method under the supervision of the legendary Pieter Bubbles Ferreira. This 50-50 blend of chardonnay and pinot noir from the Robertson region is about as good as it gets for a non-champagne fizz, being crisp and clean, but toasty and brioche-like too. A cracking aperitif.' Jonathan Ray, Daily Telegraph
