Château de Saint Cosme Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge 2017

R215.00 inc. VAT
"The 100% Syrah 2017 Cotes du Rhone is a bargain superstar, offering hints of smoke, cracked pepper, blueberries and black olives. It's medium to full-bodied, with a long, supple finish. For the $20 (or less) I've seen it selling for, you're not going to find a better Syrah." - Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

J.L. Chave Sélection Hermitage “Farconnet” 2015

R650.00 inc. VAT
"Ripe and fleshy, with an open-knit personality to the mix of steeped blackberry and black cherry compote flavors, backed by anise, smoldering black tea and loam notes. Offers well-integrated grip, making this approachable while giving it staying power." - Wine Spectator

JL Chave Selection Saint-Joseph “Offerus” 2016

R335.00 inc. VAT
"Brilliant magenta. Expansive scents of fresh blackberry and boysenberry are complicated by suggestions of cracked pepper, olive and pungent flowers. Sappy, appealingly sweet dark berry preserve and cherry flavors show sharp delineation and spice and mineral qualities that build with air. Finishes with strong, energetic cut, well-knit tannins and lingering sweetness." - Josh Raynolds, Antonio Galloni's Vinous.com

Keermont Syrah 2015

R250.00 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

Savage “Girl Next Door” 2019

"Made in miniscule quantities from a salty, windswept and battered 0.38 hectare Syrah vineyard near Fish Hoek in Cape Town. These gnarled 14 year old trellised vines planted on sandy gravel soils for ornamental value originally, have come to provide some of the finest Syrah grapes in the entire Western Cape. This labour of love sees 50% whole bunches employed in fermentation followed by two weeks maceration on skins. Malolactic fermentation takes place in 600 litre neutral French oak barrels followed by a further 11 months maturation. The aromatics are suggestive but initially offer up a shy, retiring bouquet of dark damson plums, Kalamata olives, sweet savoury cured meats, Tuscan wild boar sausage nuances, sweet green peppercorns, dried coriander and a lovely subtle waft of lavender blossom perfume. The front and sides of the palate bristle with mouth watering crystalline pure fresh acids, a seamlessly plump fleshy opulence and the most suave, sophisticated, lithe concentration and fruit density. Mouth coating and utterly entrancing, Drink from release and over the next 10+ years." - Greg Sherwood MW

Savage Red 2017

R295.01 inc. VAT
"After a bit of vintage shuffling, last year’s 2015 blockbuster was the last Savage Red blend to be bottled, reverting in 2017 to a pure 100% Syrah wine made from vines grown exclusively on granitic soils in both Stellenbosch and the Swartland. Farmed biodynamically, the Stellenbosch vineyard fruit makes up the lion’s share of this wine and indeed will comprise 100% of the Savage Red in 2018.The grapes spend two weeks on their skins with 50% whole-bunches used before spending 13 months in 500 litre barrels and a further 9 months in 3,200 litre conical foudre, or just under two years elevage in the cellar. Loaded with piquant blueberries, saline cassis and blackberry opulence, the nose shows strikingly complex notes of pink musk, sweet grilled herbs, black peppercorn spice and is embellished with an intoxicating exotic sweet white lily blossom fragrance. The palate intensity is also tremendously impressive with a harmonious crystalline purity and classical elegance in abundance. The vintage shows a slightly more overt, opulent personality to the broody foursquare 2015. Drink from release over the next 8 – 10+ years." - Greg Sherwood MW

Savage Red 2018

R295.00 inc. VAT
"Since 2017, this flagship wine has been made exclusively from 100% pure Syrah and from 2018, 100% pure Stellenbosch Syrah. Produced from fruit grown on the decomposed granite soils of Southern Stellenbosch, these organically farmed grapes spent three weeks on their skins with 50% whole bunches employed in fermentation. After secondary malolactic fermentation, the wine spent 13 months in 500 litre French oak barrels and then a further 9 months in 3,200 litre conical foudres. The wine’s aromatics show an impressively deep, compact red berry fruit concentration, a savoury, brambly, damson plum palate breadth that’s delicately massaged by a soft, pure granitic acidity. There is a real translucent, weightless, purity of flavour to the fruits, a true crystalline 2018 elegance and a supple, fleshy, seamless talcum powder fine tannin texture on the finish. True to the vintage, this wine will give immense drinking pleasure from release and probably hit its prime at 8 to 10+ years of age." - Greg Sherwood MW

Tempus Syrah 2017

The 2017 Syrah is from 18-year-old bush vines in the Swartland, spending 9 months in barrel and a further 9 months in clay amphora. Fresh, clean red and black fruit dominate the nose, with soft undertones of spice. The wine is medium-bodied on the palate, demonstrating finesse yet with great concentration. The tannins are silky and fine and the wine finishes long and fresh. Although accessible immediately, this wine is capable of ageing gracefully for 15 years or more.
