Graham Beck Bowed Head Chenin Blanc 2011

If anybody thinks that the re-birth of Chenin Blanc is complete, then you only have to look at the dearth of examples available on your average restaurant wine list to realise that there’s still a long way to go.

Graham Beck Brut Blanc de Blancs 2007

If you like your bubbly lean and racy, then Graham Beck Blanc de Blancs is probably not for you. It’s a rich and creamy style, the fact that 50% of the base wine is fermented in barrel playing an important role in this regard. Yesterday, a bottle of 2007, a wine which has now spent [...]

Graham Beck Bowed Head Chenin Blanc 2009

“Needs time” is one of the great euphemisms a taster can use when confronted by a young wine that he or she feels is not showing as well as it might. When I first encountered the 2009 vintage of Bowed Head Chenin Blanc from Graham Beck about two years ago, I remember being taken aback [...]
