Château de Saint Cosme Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge 2019

R275.00 inc. VAT
While the 2019 Cotes du Rhone is not a single-estate wine (it's labeled simply Saint Cosme, without the "Château de"), this 100% Syrah is a perennial bargain—and this could be its best vintage to date. Aromas of violets, cracked pepper, cassis and blueberries leap from the glass, while the medium to full-bodied palate is ripe but silky, leading into a long, mouthwatering finish. A blend of fruit from the Gard (the right bank of the Rhône) and Vinsobres (the left bank, about 400 meters above sea level), it retains a sense of freshness not often found in Syrahs from the Southern Rhône.

J.L. Chave Sélection Crozes-Hermitage “Silène” 2018

R345.00 inc. VAT
"Inky ruby. Pungent, mineral-accented black and blue fruit qualities on the nose, along with hints of olive, licorice and peony that build in the glass. Supple and weighty on the palate, offering expansive blackberry and boysenberry flavors that become firmer with air. The floral note comes back strong on the penetrating finish, which shows outstanding persistence and fine-grained, well-knit tannins. 60% of this fruit was sourced from the granitic soils and steep slopes in the northern sector of the appellation and the other 40% came from the south, where the soils are lighter, based mostly on limestone clay and covered in large alluvial stones and smaller river rocks." - Josh Raynolds, Antonio Galloni's Vinous

Keermont “Topside” Syrah 2016

R535.00 inc. VAT
"The counterpoint to Steepside, which is planted on granite, Topside comes from a westfacing, dry land parcel at 380 metres on sandstone soils and shows the intensity and concentration of its windy site. Dense, grippy and powerful, it's the Cornas in the Keermont range with lots of spice and dark damson and blackberry fruit and plenty of grip. 2022-30" - Tim Atkin MW, South African Special Report 2020

Keermont Syrah 2015

R264.99 inc. VAT
"The 2015 Keermont Syrah, containing 13% Mourvèdre, is softly floral with a dark-fruited edge and subtle black pepper spices. The medium-bodied palate is clean with a firm blackberry core that turns tart and grippy as it lingers in the mouth, finishing long and structured with tannic grip." - Anthony Mueller, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
