Keermont Merlot 2020

R295.00 inc. VAT
"Reflecting the heat spikes of the 2020 vintage, this is the fuller bodied of the two current Merlot releases from Keermont. Sweet, ripe and concentrated, it has notes of mulberry and raspberry jam, textured, supple tannins and deftly integrated older oak." - Tim Atkin MW

Clos Cantenac Saint-Émilion Grand Cru 2020

R850.00 inc. VAT
"The 2020 Clos Cantenac is made from 100% Merlot. It has 14.5% alcohol and is aging in barriques, 40% new, for 12 months. Deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with compelling notes of plum preserves, boysenberries and blueberry compote, plus wafts of underbrush, red rosesand Sichuan pepper. The medium to full-bodied palate is laden with juicy black fruits, supported by soft tannins and just enough freshness, finishing with a peppery lift. 8,000 bottles made." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate

Clos Cantenac Saint Emilion 2014

R875.00 inc. VAT
The 2014 was produced from 100% Merlot that was hand-harvested block by block and matured in French oak barrels for 20 months (40% was new, 60% was 2nd use). This is a deep, rich and expressive wine, with lovely notes ripe red berries, mocha, truffle, spices and graphite. It is an excellent option for earlier drinking but has the credentials to keep a few more years.

Château L’Innocence de Séraphine Pomerol 2020

R949.99 inc. VAT
"The colour of this wine is a dark black cherry with good concentration right to the rim and displays great elegance on the nose of fruit that is finely delineated, showing of blackcurrant, damson and dark chocolate notes. Elegantly poised on the palate, it mixes dark black fruits with liquorice, chocolate and tobacco and is underpinned by a svelte bed of tightly grained tannins. It is nicely structured with perfumed fruit and cherries, touched with notes of white peach and sage, it delivers a fine persistence well into the finish where the tannic grip remains in harmony with the wine. Fresh, long, and quintessentially Pomerol." - Winemaker's notes

Château Séraphine Pomerol 2020

R2,600.00 inc. VAT
Château Séraphine Pomerol 2020, "This wine is made from 100% Merlot and is being aged in French oak barrels, 40% new, for 12-14 months, with a portion fermented and aging in a 1,000-liter clay amphora. The alcohol came in at 14%. Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2020 Séraphine sashays out of the glass with gorgeous notes of candied violets, dark chocolate-covered cherries and raspberry preserves over a core of juicy black plums and fertile loam, plus a waft of truffles. The medium to full-bodied palate is packed with earth-laced muscular black fruits, supported by firm, ripe, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and mineral tinged. 3,200 bottles are due to be made." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate
