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
Aromas of ripe pineapple and guava jump out of the glass. This is followed by a rich and ripe palate, beautifully balanced by lemon-lime freshness on the back palate. Flinty mineral notes that linger on the finish.
A great example of what Pinotage can offer when the fruit is top of the bill and subtle oak lending a hand. Plump plum fruit and a mellow Mediterranean-like spicy feel.
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.
Produced from young vines on the Meerlust Estate, this is a soft, medium-bodied wine with loads of crunchy black fruit and cassis!
A succulent Mediterranean style red blend based on Syrah with other Rhône varieties from Swartland. Bags of subtle fruit, peppery spice and sweet vanilla.
Absolutely top notch dessert wine from Mullineux, made from 100% Chenin Blanc. Perfectly sweet and balanced with an abundance of stone fruit, marmalade, marzipan and nutty flavours!
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.
Named after the infamous rock on the surfbreak in Cape St Francis, this sumptuous Syrah-led blend is bright with compact black fruits and spices.
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.
Offering a lively introduction to the premium quality of this grape variety in the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde (Heaven and Earth) Valley. From younger vines, it shows a more flirtatious and fruit assertive character.
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!
100% Roussane with more than a hint of a nod to its French counterparts. Lime-leaf and greengauge give it a slightly fuller fruit profile than its Rhone cousins. A taut and fresh finish ensure an joyous mouthful.
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.
A sensuous wine with a firm core for aging. Malbec provides its black fruit aromas and fleshy texture, Merlot adds softness and red fruit aromas, and Cabernet Sauvignon provides structure. 95pts Tim Atkin,93pts Wine Spectator.
Taking its name from the soils the grapes are grown on, Seriously Old Dirt is Merlot based with 31% Cabernet and 28% Malbec. Fig, fruitcake and Asian spices combine appealingly on the palate, supported by textured tannins. Big and satisfying.
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.
Cellar master Kevin Arnold has over 20 years of experience on the slopes of the Helderberg, and his self-named Shiraz is a reflection of his expertise. Dark fruit, spice and mocha dominate this unique expression.
Single varietal Petite Sirah from the West Coast of South Africa. Big, rich and fruity with the 18 months in used French oak adding a layer of spice and a touch of vanilla. With only 284 bottles produced, this is both interesting and rare. (One of only 284 bottles produced).
