David & Nadia “Aristargos” 2019

R350.00 inc. VAT
"I did a double take when I realised this was the tenth vintage of Aristargos - 2010 seems like yesterday - but what a great and reliable wine it has become. Chenin-based with 50% Clairette, Semillon, Roussanne, Viognier, Marsanne, Grenache Blanc and Verdelho, it's wonderfully complex and layered, with pear, citrus and herbal notes, a hint of peach and a long, stony finish." - Tim Atkin MW, South African Special Report 2020

David & Nadia “Aristargos” Magnum 2019

R745.00 inc. VAT
"47% Chenin Blanc, 13% Semillon, 11% Clairette Blanche, 10% Viognier, 8% Marsanne, 6% Roussanne, 3% Verdelho and 2% Grenache Blanc – seven varieties across 15 different vineyards involving 22 pickings. This vintage seems particularly reticent with the nose showing elusive notes of white and yellow fruit plus a little earthiness while the palate is lean, fresh and pithy. Quite challenging at this stage but should no doubt unwind with time in bottle." - Christian Eeded, Winemag

David & Nadia “Elpidios” 2015 Magnum

R745.00 inc. VAT
"Dominated by Carignan this time around (a first, as far as I’m aware), this blend with Syrah, Pinotage, Cinsaut and Grenache all comes from the Paardebosch farm. Seven vineyards on a range of soils supply grapes for this wild, savoury, complex, red fruited cuvée with underlying grip." - Tim Atkin MW, South African Special Report 2017

David & Nadia “Elpidios” 2017

R350.00 inc. VAT
"2017 is the first vintage of Elpidios that is Grenache based, with support from 69% Syrah, Carignan, Cinsault and Pinotage. Reflecting the grape's reputation as the "Pinot Noir of the south", this is wonderfully aromatic, subtle and refined, with sculpted tannins, bright acidity and plum, cherry stone and raspberry fruit." - Tim Atkin MW, South African Special Report 2019

David & Nadia “Hoë-Steen” Chenin Blanc 2019

"From a 1968 vineyard between Malmesbury and Darling. Striking aromatics of flowers, naartjie and stone fruit plus some leesy complexity and spice. The palate is rich and relatively thick textured – great depth of flavour with a gently savoury finish." - Christian Eedes, Winemag

David & Nadia “Plat’bos” Chenin Blanc 2019

"From a vineyard on Paardebosch planted in 1987 on granite. An exquisite nose with notes of flowers, dried herbs before lime, lemon and white peach. The palate, meanwhile, is crystalline – wonderfully pure and focused with great energy and length. Hits the target with pinpoint accuracy." - Christian Eedes, Winemag

David & Nadia “Skaliekop” Chenin Blanc 2019

"From a vineyard on Paardeberg property Paardebosch planted in 1985 on shale. Potpourri, blossom, white and yellow fruit plus a little white pepper on the nose. The palate has excellent fruit density matched by bright acidity, the finish long and dry. Great focus and flavour intensity." - Christian Eedes, Winemag

David & Nadia “Topography” Pinotage 2018

"The 2018 Pinotage comes from one of the higher-altitude sites, so it is picked earlier than the whites. It includes 100% whole bunch fruit, spends three weeks on the skins and is matured in 4,000-liter foudres; it undergoes just a little carbonic maceration. This bottle showed a bit of reduction on the nose, although that will blow off with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chewy tannins and nicely judged acidity, and the solid, slightly austere finish indicates that it will need three or four years in bottle. Fine, but not a Pinotage predisposed to appeal to the masses." - Neal Martin, Antonio Galloni's Vinous
