Keermont “Pondokrug” Cabernet Franc 2018

R595.00 inc. VAT
"I love Cabernet Franc", says Alex Starey, and you can see why when he produces wines that are as good as this single vineyard expression from Stellenbosch Mountain. Perfumed, stylish and well crafted, it has the elegance and precision of its cooler site, good underlying structure and classic black cherry, bay leaf and pencil shaving notes." Tim Atkin MW

Domaine des Closiers Saumur-Champigny Les Closiers 2020

R395.00 inc. VAT
"The 2020 Saumur Champigny Les Closiers comes from Cabernet Franc plots cultivated on the limestone hillsides of Parnay. Vinified and matured in stainless steel vats, the Closiers reveals an intense but pure and refreshing bouquet of perfectly ripe red and dark fruits such as elderberries, blackcurrant, blueberries and blackberries as well as mulberries. Generous and gentle on the palate, this is a fruit-intense, very charming and juicy, wonderfully floral and delicate red with perfect ripeness but the lightness and finesse of a Saumur Champigny. The finish is pure and fleshy and reveals fine and stimulating tannins. It's impossible not to love this 2020 that was macerated for a month and then aged in vats for approximately 10 months. Nothing added here apart from small quantities of sulfur dioxide. 13% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted in March 2022.." Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate

Domaine des Closiers Saumur-Champigny Les Coudraies 2020

R575.00 inc. VAT
"Vinified in stainless steel tanks and then aged in barrels, the 2020 Saumur Champigny Les Coudraies comes from the low-yielding limestone slopes of Parnay that were cropped at 40 hectoliters per hectare that year. The Coudraies offers a deep and concentrated, spicy and fruity bouquet of dark fruits such as sour cherries and blackcurrant along with mint and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, round and intense on the palate, this is a substantial, dense and generous but structured Cabernet with very intense and juicy fruit, good mineral freshness, spicy tannins and a long and intense, very promising finish that is still a little astringent. 14% stated alcohol. Natural cork." Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate

Domaine du Bel Air Bourgueil “les Marsaules” 2018

R535.00 inc. VAT
"The wine reveals its intense red colour. The nose is distinguished by aromas of crushed black berries or wild strawberries with slightly earthy and smoky notes. The palate is rich in tasty fruit but also firm and balanced. The wine lingers on the palate on a thread of freshness and spices. An impression of gluttony continues during the tasting. No greenness, but a pure and elegant fruit that lingers in the mouth." - Winemaker's notes

Domaine du Bel Air Bourgueil “les Vingt Lieux Dits” 2020

R375.00 inc. VAT
"This wine reveals an intense and deep ruby ​​color. Scents of intense black fruits accompanied by slightly earthy notes delicately fill the senses. The mouth is full, frank and concentrated. No heaviness or sourness appears. Here everything is pure fruit, intense, fine and delicate. The sapid and persistent finish gives an incompressible desire to return with relish to this bewitching Bourgueil." - Winemaker's notes

Domaine du Bel Air Bourgueil “Jour de Soif” 2021

R325.00 inc. VAT
"This wine reveals a less pronounced purple color than the aging wines. Scents of red fruits accompanied by floral notes. The mouth is light on the fruit and without tannin, the finish has a salty side that invites you to refill." - Winemaker's notes

Keermont Pondokrug Cabernet Franc 2017

R458.00 inc. VAT
"Pondokrug sits on the cooler side of the valley and is located on water-retaining clay soils, this is a site that's “hammered by the wind and the baboons", according to Alex Starey. Fermented with 10% whole bunches, this is textured, floral and refined, with lovely oregano and dill aromas, granular tannins and racy black fruit." - Tim Atkin MW
