Altitude and cooling breezes at this boutique winery's vineyards outside Cape Town help to produce a wonderfully fresh wine full of black cherries and strawberry.
Superb Cape Chenin. Fermented in oak, with no malolactic, the crisp and fresh style of the fruit to shows through. Orange, pear, jasmine and honeysuckle with a hint of cinammon. 5 stars Platters / 94pts Tim Atkin
A bold and interesting blend of five varietals from Eben Sadie, a man who has the reputation as the most innovative and inspired winemaker in South Africa.
Black fruits abound, edged with hints of olive, dark chocolate and sundried tomato. Soft, supple tannins and freshening acidity add to the concentrated fruit. 18 months in barrel add spice and complexity. Super!
Packed with stone fruit flavours of apricot and peach, supported by ripe pineapple on the mid palate. With almost a quarter matured in oak the finish is soft, creamy and lingering.
This appetizing wine has everything a Merlot-lover could want, and more. Concentrated black-berried fruit is edged with sweet vanilla hints and spicy aromas on the nose.

A highly rated Cape white blend from vineyards across the Cape's best growing areas. Finely textured with pears, peach and acacia blossom, with a lovely vanilla cream underbelly. Decant for best results.
Predominantly Grenache with a good dose of Cinsault and Mouvedre, this is a fine and keenly balanced modern Cape Blend. Notes of tea leaf, dried cranberry, exotic woods, dried herbs and citrus peel, and a whiff of the apothecarys chest make this an intriguing and enticing wine.
Looking for something a little different, yet deliciously drinkable? Then look no further! This Touriga Nacional from South Africa is great, full and juicy yet smooth and approachable with dark fruits, chocolate and savoury notes.
