Graham Beck Brut MCC - $16 avg.

South African wines are having a moment in the American market right now, which is well-deserved considering the vast community of outstanding producers behind the boom. Méthode Cap Classique is the country’s own sparkling wine (made in the traditional Champagne method); there are so many impressive MCCs to try, but for your toast to 2019, give Graham Beck’s non-vintage Brut a go. It’s won a handful of awards, and it was casually served at Nelson Mandela’s inauguration. You can expect elements of cream, light yeast, and soft citrus in this super-versatile and straight up delicious South African export.
