Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Chardonnay 2020

R400.00 inc. VAT
"We want our Chardonnays to last," says Gordy Newton Johnson, and this one certainly will. Made with grapes from three sites - two north- and one south-facing, this is a very complete, balanced wine, with 30% new wood, citrus, oatmeal and cinnamon spice flavours, pithy acidity, a drizzle of cream and commendable palate length. "- Tim Atkin MW

Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Pinot Noir 2020

R485.00 inc. VAT
Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Pinot Noir 2020, "The length of the 2020 growing season helped to produce Pinots with excellent balance and precision. This four vineyard blend - from Mrs M, Sandford, Seadragon and Windansea - is elegant, detailed and refined, with pale colour, wild strawberry, black tea and ginger flavours, electrifying minerality and savoury grip." - Tim Atkin MW

Keermont Terrasse 2019

R200.00 inc. VAT
Terrasse 2019 has a polished, light-yellow gold colour, with an explosive bouquet of lime, apple, pineapple, and peach with notes of vanilla, and butterscotch. The palate is rich, but fresh. A seemingly weightless entry comes quickly to life with ripe apricot, peach, and pear flavours complimented by cut grass, vanilla oak, and rich lees. This is followed by a lingering sweet-sour aftertaste. - Winemaker's notes

Keermont Amphitheatre 2015

R580.00 inc. VAT
"Bright crimson red in the glass, although more opaque than dark. This wine opens with dusty, ripe strawberry aromas complimented by hints of baked pudding, vanilla, and sweet citrus blossom. The palate is tight and effortless. There is a firm chalky tannin structure and an array of flavours from ripe plum and berries to more savoury herbs and oak tannin. The finish is long and succulent with lingering cherry flavours and grippy tannins." - Winemaker's notes

Keermont Syrah 2016

R265.01 inc. VAT
"The Keermont Syrah 2016 has a dark plummy red colour. It has an enchanting bouquet of lavender, cherries, cloves, and vanilla. The palate is elegant and soft with dark strawberry and cherry flavours and hints of citrus rind, herbs, and vanilla. The tannins are light, but firm and the wine has a long rich savoury finish." Winemaker's notes

Keermont Fleurfontein Non-Vintage 375ml

R264.99 inc. VAT
"Yellow gold in colour with a copper tinge, the Fleurfontein Non-Vintage exudes aromas of dried apricot, lime marmalade, and ripe orange rind with hints of hazelnut and vanilla. The palate is full and creamy with concentrated flavours of dried fruits and marzipan with a grassy freshness. A central core of acidity gives the wine a long, complex, and succulent finish with a slightly salty touch. Drink now through to 2031." Winemaker's notes

Damascene W.O. Stellenbosch Chenin Blanc 2020

Damascene W.O. Stellenbosch Chenin Blanc 2020, "A blend of three mountainous Stellenbosch vineyards. The wine is supremely expressive of these distinct sites, with soils of pure shale, Greywacke and granite; aromatics of waxy flowers popping open in the breeze, crushed lime, smoked honey and wet stone. Harmonious. Yellow peaches are bright and sun-kissed on the palate, while the density of fruit - tangy apricot, mango and caramelised pineapple - is pithy and mouth-coating. The mineral acidity carries all the richness of the fruit into a refreshing finish with hints of toasty nuts on the tail." - Winemaker's notes

Damascene W.O. Cederberg Syrah 2020

Damascene W.O. Cederberg Syrah 2020, "A singularity. So expressive of its liminal site; a mountainous vineyard 940-metres above sea level. Floaty red fruit, sour cherry, cranberry; the sandalwood scent of scrub and fynbos, a glow of white pepper, iridescent and driven. Hands-off winemaking assures the austerity and lightness of being of the wine remains intact. The fresh red fruit continues on the palate, underscored by a riper touch of blackcurrant wrapped in a fine-boned structure. Clear, precise acidity conjures up the coolness of the site; the spice lingers long into the finish." - Winemaker's notes

Damascene W.O. Stellenbosch Syrah 2020

Damascene W.O. Stellenbosch Syrah 2020, "Scented, silky, spicy and floral. Made in the clouds, a large component of this Syrah hails from Karibib, a granitic site at the very top ridge of the Stellenbosch farm. A weather system informs the grapes growing here; a regular occurring cloud formation is drawn in from the Atlantic Ocean and only covers this specific site. The diffused light and cool temperatures safeguard the intense aromatic quality of the fruit; dark-green coiled garrigue, jasmine, violets, and white pepper scents, livened by fresh cherries and wild strawberries. Fruit from the Bottelary ward brings structure and backbone, adding an inky depth of black fruit; while Devon Valley grapes give refreshing lift and linear acidity. The clarity of fruit is underscored by charcuterie spice and grapefruit pith, driven along a granular grip of tannins. Just a hint of bitter cherry on the composed, detailed finish." - Winemaker's notes

Damascene W.O. Stellenbosch Cabernet Franc 2020

Damascene W.O. Stellenbosch Cabernet Franc 2020, "Vibrant aromas of fresh fennel, bramble, black cherries, dried violets, graphite, and hints of sweet tobacco. The wine is fragrant and evolving; leafy on the edges, conjuring up images of tomato vines in the sun, alongside camphor and campfire under starry skies. An energetic and nervy palate is wrapped around a core of iodine, overlaid with tangy redcurrants, tart cherries, cranberries, and blackcurrants. The fresh fruit is complemented by lively acidity and an inherent vitality. There’s purity to the tannin structure, unencumbered by wood, red-fleshed and grippy, tailoring into a precise, dry finish." - Winemaker's notes

Damascene W.O. Franschhoek Semillon 2020

Damascene W.O. Franschhoek Semillon 2020, "From historic bush vines planted in 1942 and 1962. Shaped by the decades, these vines produce concentrated Sémillon pearls, interspersed with the mysterious, old vine oddity, the mutated Sémillon Gris. Picture rolling dunes of golden sand, the amber glow of twilight; this wine lives in the mind as much as it does sensorially. It’s ethereal at first, opening with the scent of orange blossoms, then sea breeze and salty peach, moving to deeper tones of dried mango and dulce de leche. The palate is dry, textured, and chalky. As complex as origami, the wine folds and layers within itself, while revealing the purity of white peach on the mid-palate, followed by grapefruit, green pistachio and ginger biscuits. Stony and focused on a long, mineral finish. If you can, drink this wine over three days to see how it evolves" - Winemaker's notes

Damascene W.O. Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Damascene W.O. Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon 2019, "A modern classic. Fruit from the Helderberg, Bottelary and Vlottenburg wards combine to deliver supreme balance and intensity. The wine is plummy and redcurrant-driven, with cassis, crisp green herbs, pencil shavings, and a dusting of spice and smoke. The palate is long and rounded, with equal amounts of power and freshness. There is a deliberate density, richly-fruited with a granitic seam, and a pure core of cassis. The expansive, broad mouthfeel is framed by judicious oaking from 22 months in new French oak. The tannins are firm and resolute, lending the wine structure and intensity, balanced by a refreshing acidity and moderate alcohol. Elegant, dry finish. " - Winemaker's notes

Savage Red 2019

R310.01 inc. VAT
Savage Red 2019 "Syrah exclusively sourced in Stellenbosch from vineyards organically grown on decomposed granite soils. Always released a year behind the rest of the Savage range, this 2019 is a dense, dark, potent red from a powerful, concentrated, minerally focused vintage. On the nose, the aromatics are marked by intense notes of earthy red and blackberry fruits, inky saline notes of black cherries, pink musk, savoury cured meat nuances, black olives, and a sappy cedar wood spice complexity. With 70% of whole clusters used in the fermentation, the palate shows pronounced chalky mineral tannins with vibrantly fresh crunchy acids from the granitic soils. Raspberries and blueberries surge to the fore on this dense, powerfully structured wine, gaining in richness and intensity as the wine slowly unfurls in the glass. The wine shows a focused prowess and concentration together with an opulent richness framed by an underlying stony minerality. A wine with undeniable focus and structure but also a surfeit of seductive charm."- Greg Sherwood MW

Savage “Follow the Line” 2020

"Now in its eighth vintage, ‘Follow The Line’ continues to be one of South Africa’s most respected old vine Cinsaults. As always, the fruit comes from 40-year-old dry-farmed bush vines in Darling grown on decomposed granite soils. The 2020 is spontaneously fermented with 50% of the fruit as whole clusters. Every vintage that passes boasts an incredibly perfumed floral bouquet of violets, pressed rose petals, and hints of cherry blossom that melt into pronounced notes of earthy lavender, coriander, and Turkish delight. The palate is incredibly cool and suave with bright tingling cherry acids. A silky weightless concentration, crystalline wild strawberry, and red cherry fruits, and the most delicate lacey tannins on the finish. This is a very polished, ethereal, classy effort with so many of the Cinsault characteristics drawing an undeniable resemblance to young, premium Côtes de Beaune Pinot Noir. Approachable on release, but cellar-worthy for at least 10+years, don’t miss this new release." - Greg Sherwood MW

BLANKbottle Saint Rand 2020

R280.00 inc. VAT
"I want to make a great Pinotage," says Pieter Walser and he's not far off with this example from 40-year-old bush vines in Darling. Racy, floral and early picked, it has lily and violet aromas, tangy raspberry and red cherry fruit and an elegant, tapering finish." Tim Atkin MW

BLANKbottle Nothing to Declare 2020

R280.00 inc. VAT
“They used various techniques, one of them being… tie it to your leg, drop your pants to cover it and walk through the NOTHING TO DECLARE section at the airport as if you have… NOTHING TO DECLARE – you know the feeling… Back in SA they would then reproduce and plant little vineyards, do trials on them and plant larger ones (to state the obvious: this was completely illegal, distributing diseases being the main risk). I, however, have seen first-hand that the type of farmer who went through all the effort to do this, is almost without fail completely passionate, super psyched-up, forward-thinking farmers/winemakers – serious producers. So they would, without a doubt, bring in clean, great quality vines. Nothing to Declare is a tribute to these vine smugglers. Providing us, the new generation winemakers, the foundation to take this industry to new heights. In 2012 and 2013 I made a wine that was driven by one of these illegally smuggled grape varieties. It was registered with the government as Chenin Blanc. I called it “Nothing to declare”. Since then this particular vineyard went through a process of amnesty and was now declared legal. So this wine grew from there, using that vineyard as a base and combining that with as many of the not so traditional South African varietals I have in the Winery. The 2016 ended up being 9 Varietals but in the 2018 we are down to 5 – fermented in old French Oak barrels aged for 1 year on the leese blended and bottled. The Label: I did a chalk drawing on the one side of one of the barrels – an image of vine cuttings tied to a man’s leg, about to be covered by his pants. After a few months, the image faded. To solidify the image, I engraved it into the wood like it was done in the olden days. So in February 2015, after bottling the first vintage, I needed a label. I bought printing ink and applied it to the surface of the carved image. I then placed a large piece of paper on it and made a print, which became the main image for the label.” – Winemaker's Note

BLANKbottle Air Carrots of Pagnol 2019

R250.00 inc. VAT
“A couple of decades ago a guy called Polla Brand drove the first Suzuki Jimny into South Africa from Namibia. The car ended up with a family member on a farm in the Voor Paardeberg. Come winter, the other vehicles struggled in the mud and slippery clay but the Suzuki, with its short wheelbase, cruised through really difficult terrain. Immediately gaining respect. From then on, the farmer, his son and his grandson (the current farmer) only drives Suzuki 4×4’s on the farm. The current farmer also happens to be the Western Cape champion, racing in the Dunes along the West Coast of South Africa – with his little hyped-up supercharged Suzuki – hence the inspiration for the label. Verdelho is a really interesting variety to farm with in South Africa. It loves heat and has this unique characteristic of maintaining high acid levels in really ripe conditions. This is a variety that you need to keep an eye on during harvest. It gains sugar at an immense rate with the challenge of picking it before it gets too ripe. Where most other wineries add tartaric acid, we prefer having a very early-picked Verdelho, at a low alcohol and a beyond-massive acid in the winery. We make use of this as a blending component to add acid and freshness. And this is the true power of Verdelho. But I felt that it was time to show the consumer the real personality of the varietal.” – Producer Note

Newton Johnson Full Stop Rock 2019

R195.01 inc. VAT
Newton Johnson Full Stop Rock 2019, "Rich and generous with its wild flavour. Brooding black fruits, liquorice and mulberry are laced with black and white pepper, topped with the sweet floral notes of Grenache. Full liquorice flavour, with juicy red fruits in the periphery, and chewy tannins lasting in to the finish." - Winemaker's notes

Newton Johnson Walker Bay Pinot Noir 2020

R240.01 inc. VAT
"This is "only" the Walker Bay Pinot Noir from the Newton Johnsons, but it's pretty special at the price. Made from Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley and Bot River fruit, it's wonderfully floral and sappy with some granitic tannins, subtle whole bunch notes and red cherry and pomegranate fruit. Wonderfully drinkable." - Tim Atkin MW

Newton Johnson Southend Chardonnay 2020

R225.00 inc. VAT
“Condensed flavours elevated by this vineyard’s rapier – like freshness. Ripe limes & waxy honeycomb are illuminated by sharp ginger and lemon zest, with an airy scent of jasmine. Succulent citrus fruit in the mouth, ladled with lees texture and buttery brioche, narrowing to a racy, lively finish.” – Winemaker's notes

David & Nadia “Elpidios” 2019

R365.00 inc. VAT
"This Grenache noir-based blend again includes a portion of wine that was fermented and matured in a concrete vessel – both Grenache and Syrah. Along with the concrete vessels, the wine was also matured in old 500 L neutral French oak barrels and a 4 100 L foudre (Pinotage). The Elpidios is produced in a similar fashion to our main Grenache noir in terms of long, gentle extraction, the use of 50% on average whole bunches and then pressed off. After bottling, the wine was aged in a bottle for 18 months before release. This vintage is again based on grapes grown in granite soils from the Paardeberg, blended with structured shale/schists from the east, clay-rich soils from the north, and iron mixed soils from the west."
