David & Nadia “Elpidios” 2019

R365.00 inc. VAT
"This Grenache noir-based blend again includes a portion of wine that was fermented and matured in a concrete vessel – both Grenache and Syrah. Along with the concrete vessels, the wine was also matured in old 500 L neutral French oak barrels and a 4 100 L foudre (Pinotage). The Elpidios is produced in a similar fashion to our main Grenache noir in terms of long, gentle extraction, the use of 50% on average whole bunches and then pressed off. After bottling, the wine was aged in a bottle for 18 months before release. This vintage is again based on grapes grown in granite soils from the Paardeberg, blended with structured shale/schists from the east, clay-rich soils from the north, and iron mixed soils from the west."

David & Nadia “Aristargos” 2020

R365.00 inc. VAT
"The Aristargos 2020 is yet again predominantly both Chenin blanc and Old Vines driven (Chenin blanc, Sémillon, Clairette Blanche, and Colombar), and the focus remains on thegranitic soils of the Paardeberg. Chenin blanc from shallow shale soils in the Paardebergand iron rich clay soils to the west of Malmesbury are also added along with Viognier, Marsanne, Roussanne, Verdelho and Grenache blanc from iron-rich clay, lateral shale soils. For the first time, Colombar was also added." Winemaker's notes

David & Nadia Chenin Blanc 2020

R365.00 inc. VAT
"Our main Chenin blanc from the Swartland focuses yet again on various Old Vine Vineyards, with plantings ranging from 1968 till 1985. The wine is based on granite from the Paardeberg, blended with shale/schist from the east, more clay-rich soils from the north, and iron-rich soils from the western parts of the Swartland. Dry land-farmed bush vines have stood the test of time and it showcases the ultimate reason why Chenin blanc is our main focus in the Swartland. In total, the wine is made from 7 vineyards, 14 pickings, different soils, different aspects, different vineyard ages, farmed by different people, and different farmers. This wine illustrates the Swartland, its people, and its old vineyards. The grapes were whole bunch pressed and naturally fermented and then matured for 11 months in old neutral French oak barrels. Two components were fermented and matured in concrete – one in a square concrete tank and the other in a concrete egg. The wine has a Certified Heritage Vineyards (CHV) seal and forms part of the Old Vine Project (OVP)." Winemaker's notes

David & Nadia Grenache Noir 2020

R365.00 inc. VAT
"The 2020 vintage consists of four Grenache noir vineyards, with the core a vineyard from the Paardeberg planted in the early 2000s. Joining this vineyard is anotherPaardeberg vineyard, recently planted on the north-eastern side of the Langkloofvalley, overlooking the Aprilskloof. Another addition is a 2016 planted vineyard in schist of the Kasteelberg. This vineyard was planted on terraces high up in the mountain. Finally, Grenache noir from a farm north of Malmesbury was also added, a vineyard we have been working with since 2012. A component of the wine was fermented and matured in concrete. Juice was kept on the skins for four weeks pre-/during fermentation and 60% whole bunches were used. One punch down per day was done resulting in minimal and gentle extraction. The wine was pressed off and matured in old 500 L neutral French oak barrels as well as a 2 700 L concrete vessel for a year."- Winemaker's notes

Keermont “Pondokrug” Cabernet Franc 2016

R425.01 inc. VAT
"One of the younger wines in the Keermont portfolio - it was first made as recently as 2014 - this is at the firmer end of the Cabernet Franc spectrum, which is why Alex Starey says it needs "a week in a decanter to open up properly". Floral, dense and focused, it has stylish oak, layers of cut grass and damson fruit and a fresh finish. 2022-28" - Tim Atkin MW, South African Special Report 2020

David & Nadia “Aristargos” Magnum 2019

R755.01 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
