Keermont Terrasse 2022

R280.00 inc. VAT
"The Terrasse 2022 has an inviting aroma with notes of spring flowers, ripe apricots and citrus, and a hint of fennel. The palate is soft and luscious, with lovely fresh acidity and an array of flavours: ripe apricot, peach and quince flavours complimented by richer more spicy savoury fruit. This follows into a lingering aftertaste with salty acidity." - Winemaker's notes

J.L. Chave Sélection Hermitage Blanc Blanche 2019

R950.00 inc. VAT
"Another incredible white from this family is the 2019 Hermitage Blanc, a powerful, concentrated, and remarkably pure Hermitage that has laser-like focus as well as textbook Marsanne notes of quince, green almond, powdered rock, licorice, and spice. It’s still tight, focused, and inward at present, yet it reminds me of the 2018 with its purity and rare mix of power and elegance. It’s worth trying a bottle any time over the coming 3-5 years, but after that, I’d recommend waiting until after 2031. 98+" - Jeb Dunnuck

J.L. Chave Sélection Crozes-Hermitage Blanc “Sybèle” 2021

R395.00 inc. VAT
Around 70% Marsanne and 30% Roussanne from vineyards planted between mid-1990s and early 2010s from Larnage.

Château Lafleur Grand Village Blanc 2020

R450.00 inc. VAT
"The 2020 Grand Village Blanc has a fresh bouquet with lime, grapefruit and peach skin scents, quite pure, not complex, though seductive. The palate is well balanced with a nervy entry, lovely oily texture (which Baptiste Guinaudeau attributes to the more solar vintages) with a touch of bitter lemon, pear drop and stem ginger towards the finish. Delicious."

David & Nadia Aristargos 2022

R410.00 inc. VAT
"At 13,000 bottles, Aristargos is one of the larger production whites in David and Nadia Sadie's portfolio. Based on Chenin Blanc, with the remaining 53% made up of Semillon, Verdelho, Clairette Blanche, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Colombard and Viognier, it's a layered, mealy, waxy cuvée with subtle skin contact bitterness, racy acidity and pear, quince and lemongrass flavours." - Tim Atkin MW

Rall White 2022

R355.01 inc. VAT
"The Rall white is an 80/20 cuvée of Swartland and Stellenbosch grapes, combining Chenin Blanc with 24% Verdelho and 4% Viognier. Showing some subtle struck match reduction, it displays flavours of citrus, beeswax and apricot, very understated oak spices and surprising weight and concentration for a wine with 12.5% alcohol." - Tim Atkin MW

BLANKbottle Orbitofrontal Cortex 2022

R310.01 inc. VAT
BLANKbottle Orbitofrontal Cortex 2022, "The barrels I like", is how Pieter Walser describes the selection process for this Chenin Blanc and Verdelho based blend with 46% Clairette Blanche, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne and a soupçon of Viognier. Lightly skin fermented, it has top notes of wild flowers and wet stone, citrus, pear and grapefruit flavours and a finish that lingers on the palate. Delicious."- Tim Atkin MW

Oremus Tokaji Aszú 5 Puttonyos 2014 (500ml)

R1,100.00 inc. VAT
"Aszu 5 Puttonyos 2014 is a bright golden colour and has the characteristic aromas of ripe apricot, honey, and citric nuances of grapefruit. It is complex and rich with a refreshing finish, typical of a classic sweet Tokaji wine, without forgetting the acidity perfectly balancing the sweetness." Winemaker's note

Keermont Fleurfontein 2021

R330.00 inc. VAT
"Consistently among the Cape's sweet wine elite, this is an unusual blend of Sauvignon Blanc and 24% Roussanne. Naturally fermented in French and Hungarian oak, it has layers of passion fruit, pineapple and mango, intense 225 grams of residual sugar and a tangy, tartetatin finish. The volatile acidity is commendably low for the style." - Tim Atkin MW

BLANKbottle Empire Strikes Back 2021

R280.00 inc. VAT
"The name of this wine is a reference to the renaissance of Stellenbosch, which is the origin of this assemblage of Verdelho with 62% Chenin Blanc, Marsanne and Roussanne. Old wood and concrete fermented, it has pear, patisserie and clementine flavours, fine texture and the freshness that's a feature of Pieter Walser's whites. 2022-26." - Tim Atkin MW

Conceito “Contraste” White 2019

R220.00 inc. VAT
"The 2019 Contraste Branco is a blend of traditional white grapes, like Rabigato, Códega, Códega do Larinho, Arinto, from mostly 20+-year-old vines at 600 meters in altitude, all co-fermented (wild ferment) in a 70/30 mixture of stainless steel and new French oak for eight months. It comes in at 13% alcohol. An elegant and lovely Contraste, it's a little lean but fresh, pure and lively. The fruit is lifted by the acidity and the flavors linger nicely. This is enticing for its balance and its youthful freshness. The only thing that might hold this back is the question of whether it stays at this level for most of its useful life. Can it develop? I won't be surprised if it lasts a decade from the vintage date, more or less, but whether it is this good in 2025 might be a different question. We'll see. It drinks great now, and today you'll like it better than the score suggests. It will also be great next summer." - Mark Squires, The Wine Advocate

Conceito White 2019

R550.00 inc. VAT
"The 2019 Branco, the estate flagship, is a field blend from old (centenarian) vines at 600 meters in altitude aged for 10 months in used French oak. Principal grapes include common Douro white grapes, like Rabigato, Códega, Códega do Larinho, Cerceal, Gouveio and others. Very dry, the residual sugar is nominal and the total acidity comes in at 7.1 grams per liter. It comes in at 12.9% alcohol. Average in concentration—this is never a fat and fruity white, to be sure—this shows reasonably good structure, but there is a reductive issue on the nose. It is smoky and flinty. The rest is pretty nice, but the smoke—reduction, I presume—has to blow off. It often does with aeration or time. In the meanwhile, let's be a bit conservative. Give it some air if you open it in the near future. Call this a compromise ." - Mark Squires, The Wine Advocate

Château d’Yquem Sauternes 2018

R5,995.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 d'Yquem is all lime cordial, grapefruit oil and mandarin peel to begin. With a little coaxing, the fireworks really begin, letting off a whole array of honeysuckle, candied ginger, dried pineapple, lemon pastilles, chalk dust and sea spray scents, followed by a savory undercurrent of shaved almonds, allspice and baking bread. The palate is an exercise in polish and poise, featuring the most gorgeously creamy texture and bright, sparkling freshness, framing all the densely laden tropical and citrus fruit layers, finishing with a powerful BANG of profound floral and spice perfume. It is wonderfully sweet, yes, but that—paradoxically for a "sweet wine"—is almost beside the point." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate

Oremus Tokaji Aszú 5 Puttonyos 2013 (500ml)

R1,100.00 inc. VAT
"Citrus, peach and apricot aromas characterize the nose of this Aszú 5 Puttonyos 2013; Rich, intense on the palate with a long aftertaste of orange blossom and spices. Along with 2008, vintage 2013 was the second greatest vintage of the millennium for sweet wines. Extraordinary in quality and quantity." Winemaker's note
