Bodegas y Viñedos Pintia 2018 – 3.L

R5,995.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Pintia comes from a cooler and wetter vintage when the grapes were picked between September 20th and October 7th, and it fermented in their new fermentation room where they feel they can be more precise. The wine still has 15% alcohol, with a pH of 3.82 and 4.6 grams of acidity. It had a shorter élevage this year and matured for 10 months in French and 18% American oak barrels, 81% of them new. The nose is very expressive, with bright cherry fruit, and the wine is fresher than the norm in the region, with integrated alcohol and oak, reflecting a very cool year, floral and perfumed. The palate is medium-bodied and reveals very fine and elegant tannins. This has to be one of the finest vintages of Pintia. 251,512 bottles, 14,144 half-bottles, 6,543 magnums and some larger formats produced. It was bottled in April 2020." - Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate

Champagne Pol Roger Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill 2015 Magnum

R9,895.00 inc. VAT
"The 2015 Brut Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill shows off the savory side of the vintage to great effect. Hints of dried pear, sage, mint, dried flowers, lemon oil and chamomile open gradually in this mid-weight, lithe edition of Pol Roger's tête de cuvée. The 2015 unfolds nicely with time in the glass, but I wouldn't think of opening a bottle anytime soon. Readers will find a nervy Winston Churchill marked by notable freshness and vigor more than size. This is a fine effort in a vintage that has proven to be far trickier than most observers originally envisioned. Dosage is 7 grams per liter. Disgorged September 2022." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Champagne Pol Roger Brut Vintage 2016 Magnum

R3,400.00 inc. VAT
"Pale yellow with silver highlights, the wine produces an alluring effervescence that rises from a cord of fine persistent bubbles. An especially open and expressive nose begins with notes of dried fruit, cocoa, almond and coconut. Allowed to breathe, notes of yellow fruits such as Mirabelle plum and eau de vie add complexity to the nose which, though young, is rich and promising.The palate is exceedingly fresh. Crisp acidity gives it a strong backbone that carries right through to the finish. Those aromas of dried fruits from the first nose persist, with nuances of citrus, lemon and bitter orange completing the palate and reinforcing the youth of the wine. On the finish, subtle notes of confected fruits come through, in particular candied orange peel." - Winemaker's notes

Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2018 Magnum

R1,795.00 inc. VAT
"Impressing from the first tilt of the glass, the 2018 Brunello di Montalcino makes itself known, with a heady burst of exotic spice and crushed ashen stone giving way to dried black cherries and grilled herbs. This combines the energy of the vintage with the dark balsamic-tinged fruits of Montalcino’s southern reaches, as zesty acidity maintains balance throughout, and flinty minerals saturate toward the close. It finishes long, savory and structured, yet its tannins are more rounded than anticipated, creating both a classic feel, but also leaving a mouthwatering sensation that tricks the taster back to the glass for more. Easily one of the top wines of the vintage, the 2018 is not to be missed." - Eric Guido

David & Nadia “Elpidios” 2021 Magnum

R860.00 inc. VAT

Fermented with 40% whole bunches, it's dominated by Grenache, supported by 31% Syrah, 13% Carignan and 1% each of Pinotage and Cinsault. Stony, grippy and chiselled, it has savoury tannins, lots of granitic intensity and plum, red berry and cranberry flavours. Will age well, too." - Tim Atkin MW

Domaine Lionnet Cornas Terre Brûlée 2021 Magnum

R1,795.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Lionnet 2021 Cornas Terre Brulée 2021 Magnum, "Youthful purple. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh black and blue fruits, star anise, olive, violet and tobacco. A smoky mineral accent builds steadily in the glass and energizes the spice-laced, dark berry liqueur, smoky bacon and floral pastille flavors that are underscored by a vein of juicy acidity. Clings with strong tenacity on the youthfully tannic finish, leaving behind sappy blue fruit, cracked pepper and mineral notes. " - Josh Raynolds

Champagne Lanson Noble Cuvée Brut 1998 Magnum

R4,995.00 inc. VAT
"Light yellow. Rich and smoky, with deep pit fruit aromas enlivened by zesty minerality. Round and fleshy, with peach and poached pear flavors braced by slow-mounting spiciness and citrus zest bite. Takes on a firm character on the finish, which is refreshingly brisk and impressively persistent. This could stand some patience but is plenty of fun to drink now. " - Josh Raynolds, Vinous

Keermont “Riverside” Magnum 2018

R1,380.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Chenin Blanc Single Vineyard Series Riverside has a taut bouquet, quite neutral in style; hints of fish scales emerge with time. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, brisk and breezy, not overly complex but precise on the finish, which reveals subtle yeasty scents. Very fine." - Neal Martin, Vinous

Keermont “Pondokrug” Cabernet Franc Magnum 2017

R1,144.00 inc. VAT
"Pondokrug sits on the cooler side of the valley and is located on water-retaining clay soils, this is a site that's “hammered by the wind and the baboons", according to Alex Starey. Fermented with 10% whole bunches, this is textured, floral and refined, with lovely oregano and dill aromas, granular tannins and racy black fruit." - Tim Atkin MW

Keermont Topside Syrah Magnum 2017

R1,456.00 inc. VAT
Keermont Single Vineyard Series Topside Syrah 2017, "Topside is all made with the 470 clone and hails from a single vineyard with a westerly aspect that sees very little sunshine in the mornings. Denser and firmer than its stablemate Steepside, this a dark, inky, brooding Syrah with fig, damson and Asian spice flavours and lots of stony grip." - Tim Atkin MW

Keermont Steepside Syrah Magnum 2017

R1,456.00 inc. VAT
"Steepside faces north and east and is situated at 300 metres on granite and clay loam soils.

Vibrant and energetic" - Tim Atkin MW
