Steytler 1947 Chenin Blanc 2021

"From 74 year old vines, the aromatics are super complex and spicy with lovely nuances of wet straw, dusty white citrus, honied yellow peaches, fynbos and sweet pineapple confit. There is such focused depth, full bodied plump texture and complexity with fabulous nuances of tangerine peel, naartjie pulp, lychee concentrate and a honied bon bon intensity. A super impressive wine with power, breadth and weight but a balancing harmonious acidity. The true personification of delicious old vine Chenin Blanc statesmanship. World class from every angle. Drink now and over the next 25 years" – Greg Sherwood MW

Steytler Vision 2020

R630.00 inc. VAT
Steytler Vision 2020, "Power & concentration, within a tightly woven structure showing lots of promise. Generous cassis and blackberries as well as vanilla and spice from the oak. Complex & multi-dimensional. Those who can resist the temptation will be rewarded well with cellaring." Winemaker's notes

Steytler Pentagon 2020

R630.00 inc. VAT
"Kaapzicht Steytler Pentagon 2020, A muscular Bordeaux style blend that exudes power and concentration, tied up in a structure of fine grained tannin and bright acidity that not only promise extensive evolution, but also entices with every visit to the glass. Brooding dark fruit tightly packed in an intricate frame are delivered with great purity and finesse."- Winemaker's notes

Steytler Pinotage 2020

R630.00 inc. VAT
Steytler Pinotage 2020, "Patriotism is a personal conviction. “Steytler Pinotage” is our patriotic devotion to the trials and tribulations of mastering Pinotage since its earliest beginnings right here in the Bottelary Hills. As this is South Africa’s only truly original grape, we are fixated on flaunting its finesse to the world. With this wine we pay homage to George Steytler who farmed Kaapzicht for 33 years" - Winemaker's notes

Château La Mission Haut-Brion 2011

R4,795.01 inc. VAT
"The small production (4,150 cases) of 2011 La Mission-Haut-Brion displays the nobility and complexity of this great terroir. Burning embers, scorched earth, blueberry, black currant, licorice and spice aromas jump from the glass of this dense ruby/purple-colored wine. With full body (atypical for a 2011), but no hard edges, this opulent, multidimensional, fleshy, rich, stunningly long, well-balanced La Mission is another great achievement in what has been nearly a century of producing remarkable wines from this hallowed vineyard. The long 2011 should be reasonably mature in another 4 - 6 years, and last for two decades. It will always be a revelation in a vintage that is unlikely to receive a lot of exciting press. The final blend was 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, and 11% Cabernet Franc." - Robert M. Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate

Château Palmer 2010

R7,500.00 inc. VAT
"The 2010 Palmer has an outgoing, intense and multifaceted bouquet with black cherries, boysenberry, crushed violets and hints of cassis - your quintessential Margaux turned up to eleven. The palate is medium-bodied with very supple tannins and a fine bead of acidity. Headier than its Margaux peers, it builds in the mouth with a complex, marine-tinged finish with cracked black pepper lingering on the aftertaste. This is an outstanding Palmer but it needs more time in bottle. Tasted from an ex-château bottle at the BI Wines & Spirits 10-Year On tasting." - Neal Martin, Vinous

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 1er Cru – “La Romanée” 2019

"A whiff of the exotic is present on the aromas of white peach, citrus confit and passion fruit. There is excellent punch and detail to the intensely stony medium-bodied flavors that conclude in a bone-dry and impressively long if somewhat lean finale. This is very, very tightly wound and as such I suspect that the finish will eventually flesh out and my rating assumes that this will occur over time." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru “La Maltroie” 2019

"The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet Maltroye 1er Cru has a fragrant, chalk dust scented bouquet that opens nicely with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a lightly spiced opening, touches of orange rind and marmalade lending a welcome tanginess. It might not be a long-term Chassagne, though it is thoroughly enjoyable" - Neal Martin, Vinous

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 1er Cru “Morgeot” 2019

"A pretty and much more floral nose features mostly ripe white orchard fruit and lemon rind scents. The rich, opulent and concentrated medium-bodied flavors possess fine length on the balanced finish that is shaped by citrus-tinged acidity. This too is lovely" - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2019

"Like the La Romanée, this too flirts with hints of exotic on the white and yellow fruit, passion fruit and jasmine tea aromas. The caressing and seductively textured bigger-bodied flavors possess good power on the lemony, very dry and impressively lengthy finish. I would add that this too is rather tightly wound, and I would advise holding it for at least 5 years first." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 1er Cru – “Les Caillerets” 2019

"Smoky aromas of green apple and bright citrus introduce rich, appealingly textured and intense medium weight flavors that exude a subtle bead of minerality on the bone-dry, moderately austere and solidly persistent finish. Here too some patience is advised." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Elio Grasso Barolo “Ginestra Casa Maté” 2017

"The 2017 Barolo Ginestra Casa Matè is a dark, mysterious wine. Black cherry, menthol, tobacco, licorice, spice, new leather and pine meld together in a super-classic expression of Ginestra. Deep, rich and enveloping, the 2017 is so impressive in the early going. Here, too, the finesse of the tannins is remarkable" - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Elio Grasso Barolo “Gavarini Chiniera” 2017

"Grasso's 2017 Barolo Gavarini Chiniera is fabulous. In fact, the Gavarini is easily one of the wines of the vintage because it retains all of its classic signatures, which is also the sign of a first-class vineyard. Bright and vibrant in the glass, the Gavarini pulses with energy. Crushed red flowers, mint, chalk, white pepper, cinnamon and orange peel give the 2017 a super-classic Nebbiolo profile, as expressed in a relatively high-altitude site. The precision and finesse of the tannins - so hard to find in 2017- elevates the Gavarini into the realm of the sublime." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Fèlsina Vin Santo del Chianti Classico 2009 (375ml)

R525.00 inc. VAT
"Opening to a dark amber color and syrupy rich concentration, the Fèlsina 2009 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico (packaged in a 375-milliliter bottle) is another beautiful dessert wine that captures the unique spirit of Tuscany. Toasted chestnut, caramel, apricot and honey peel off the enormous and far-reaching bouquet. The acidity is spot-on and totally cancels out any residual heaviness you might expect. This is another traditional Vin Santo that is totally out of this world."- Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Chardonnay 2020

R415.00 inc. VAT
"We want our Chardonnays to last," says Gordy Newton Johnson, and this one certainly will. Made with grapes from three sites - two north- and one south-facing, this is a very complete, balanced wine, with 30% new wood, citrus, oatmeal and cinnamon spice flavours, pithy acidity, a drizzle of cream and commendable palate length. "- Tim Atkin MW

Domaine Bouchard Pere et Fils Le Corton Grand Cru 2019…

"An overtly floral nose reflects notes of rose petal, lavender, acacia and violet along with nuances of red and black fruit, earth and a whiff of forest floor. There is excellent intensity, size, weight and power to the attractively textured big-bodied flavors that brim with minerality on the caressing but punchy finale. This beautifully balanced effort is in the classic mold of this wine as it's very clearly built for the long haul and again, I would suggest not touching this wine for at least a decade and two decades would not be much of a surprise." - Allen Meadows, Burghound
