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
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!
A soft buttery mouthful of tropical fruits such as mangoes, pineapples and bananas, edged with toasty oak and balanced by good acidity. Finishes with a gorgeous toffee-cream tail.
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.
Wonderful creamy Chardonnay from this famous estate, rich in fruit and floral notes with a touch of marzipan thrown into the mix. Crisp, fresh acidity keeps the wine in perfect balance.
One of the most iconic Cape wines, from one of its most iconic estates, is never released until it has at least four years ageing! The 2012 is full of classic ripe dark fruits that mingle with spices, cedar and mineral notes.
A succulent Mediterranean style red blend based on Syrah with other Rhône varieties from Swartland. Bags of subtle fruit, peppery spice and sweet vanilla.
Mullineux have produced a Syrah with a true sense of its Swartland terroir. Restrained and refined with big, dark fruit notes, complex spices and elegant floral undertones.
A backbone of old vine Chenin with the addition of several small parcels of Mediterranean varieties from quality Swartland vineyards. Rich and full with plenty of fruit and spice.
A sauvignon-semillon blend from one of South Africa's most consistent producers. Stony and linear with good energy, full of white blossom and hints of tangerine. Generous and grippy, with good acidity.
The vineyard lies directly opposite the farm in the cooler valley with slower ripening, producing wines with compact structure, cool fruit flavours and vibrant, lengthy acidity. Just a light touch of oak for this Chardonnay expression.
Bright, expressive and youthful- this is a wine bursting with ripe red fruit and sweet herbs. A perfect partner to your Sunday roast!
From the cool climate valley just above the resort of Hermanus. Juicy and well-built, with a solid core of gooseberry, lemon zest and pith notes stretching out through the finish. Move over New Zealand - this is outstanding!
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.
The latest example of this wine which keeps on winning awards and racking up big scores. Five stars from Platters for this one, which is a keenly balanced example of Cabernet Franc (a grape for those in the know). Blackberries and graphite are lifted by the feintest hint of violet on the nose.
Luscious, ripe and full, this Cabernet Sauvignon from Stellenbosch is a juicy yet structured wine that delivers wave after wave of berry fruit, earthy stone and cedar.
New World single vineyard Chardonnay that is done just right! Beautiful depth of fruit and balanced creamy, toasted oak all kept in check by succulent citrus and mineral notes.
