David & Nadia Grenache Noir 2022

R410.00 inc. VAT
“The 2022 vintage humbled us,” says David Sadie, but brilliant winemakers shine in adversity. This scented, refined, very lightly wooded Grenache has lots of granite-derived freshness and minerality, red cherry, raspberry and pomegranate flavours and succulent, textured tannins.” – Tim Atkin MW

Rall Grenache Blanc 2022

R275.00 inc. VAT
Rall Grenache Blanc 2022, "Donovan Rall gets all of his Grenache Blanc from two vineyards in Piekenierskloof these days, fermenting the result in concrete eggs. Taut, pithy, focused and mouth-wateringly fresh, it has a lovely interplay between lees, minerality and lemon juice and orange zest flavours." - Tim Atkin MW

BLANKbottle The Pink Bomb 2022

R255.00 inc. VAT
"The Bomb range (if one could call it that), started with my German importer, Martin Baulmann - a larger-than-life personality who loves equally larger-than-life framed wines. First up was The BOMB (red), then The WHITE BOMB and now, yes you guessed it, The PINK BOMB. To produce wines with this structure, you need vineyards where the grapes have the opportunity of extended “hang-time” (the amount of days the bunches spend attached to the vine) - a spot where they have intensity of sunlight combined with a lower average day temperature and cool nights. This unique combination enables the fruit to ripen at a slower pace, thus retaining their freshness and acid. The higher above sea-level you go, the closer you get. A fresh, vibrant wine with punch! Like I said, not what you would’ve expected." - Winemaker's notes

BLANKbottle Familiemoord 2022

R330.00 inc. VAT
The story behind Familiemoord - Family Murder - deserves a note all to itself, but space is at a premium in this report! This daringly refined Piekenierskloof Grenache from Braam Marais' farm has flavours of raspberry, hibiscus and rooibos tea, lots of stony minerality from sandstone and granite soils and a tug of underlying tannins." - Tim Atkin MW

Château de Saint Cosme Gigondas “Le Claux” 2020

"Le Claux is sourced from a Grenache-dominant field blend, with vines dating back to 1870. Vinified in whole clusters and matured in 20% new oak, it’s a penetrating, finessed wine that juxtaposes rippling black cherry and boysenberry flavors against veins of crushed salt, licorice and smoke. Chalky tannins and a spray of violet perfume a long finish. It’s stunning in youth but should improve through 2035." - Winemaker's notes
