Álvaro Palacios “Quiñón de Valmira” 2016

R4,500.00 inc. VAT
"I had the chance to preview the 2016 Quiñón de Valmira, a wine that can seem perplexing during the élevage, as it's very pale and ethereal, but it has incredible power and depth, even if the sample was a bit shaky. There is great harmony and elegance here, with very good freshness. Even if it feels light on the palate, it seems to have more clout, concentration, power and acidity than the 2015, like it wants to go one step further. It's not very clear yet, but I believe this is a better wine than the 2015. This should be bottled around February 2018; I tasted a sample from an oval oak cask. There will be some 2,400 bottles of this. I also saw a very raw sample of 2017, from an atypical year of extreme heat and drought, and the wine had a lot more color, extract and concentration. We'll have to wait and see if this ends up being the great wine produced from Valmira. There will be a bit more wine in 2017." - Luis Gutiérrez, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

David & Nadia Grenache 2018

R350.00 inc. VAT
"Ageing the wine in older wooden barrels really emphasises the fruit purity of this 80/20 blend of grapes from the Paardeberg and Malmesbury. With 60% whole bunches providing some extra spice and structure, this is a scented, red cherry and raspberry fruity Grenache with savoury tannins." - Tim Atkin MW, South African Special Report 2019

R745.00 inc. VAT
"Grapes from three different vineyards involving six pickings. 60% whole-bunch fermentation. Very pretty aromatics with notes of rose, musk, fresh herbs and red currant. The palate is light-bodied with pure fruit fruit, fresh acidity and fine tannins, the finish lightly salty." - Christian Eededs, Winemag

Rall Grenache Blanc 2018

R250.00 inc. VAT
"Donovan Rall has moved to two picks for this wine to give it more nuances. The same is true of the shift away from oak to separate fermentations in stainless steel, concrete and a solitary amphora. Complex, fresh and very pure, this has the variety's characteristic brightness and acidity, with some creamy lees and a long, focused finish." - Tim Atkin MW, South African Special Report 2019

Sadie Family Wines “Soldaat” 2019

"The Soldaat vineyard fills the entire cellar with the red strawberry, cherry and pomegranate kind of fresh fruit aromas and perfumes during fermentation; and very similar flavours are to be found in the resultant wine. Grenache is a grape that completely translates the terroir into liquid. There is a purity of fruit as well as very earthy notes that develop into greater complexity in time and result in a transparent wine with fresh fruit aromas. The tannin textures do reward those who have the nerve to wait and allow the wine to mature properly for 5 – 8 years minimum." - Producers Note
