Castello ColleMassari Melacce Montecucco Vermentino 2018

R205.01 inc. VAT
"Clean Vermentino with a fruity-fresh first sip. Aromas of Granny Smith apple, white peach and sweet limes with a hint of exotic fruits. Crispy and dry on the palate with fantastic minerality. The after-taste is dry and indicates a good pressing as well as an aromatic precision. An ideal summer wine very elegant and classy." - Producer Note

Fèlsina Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia 2013 Magnum

R1,660.00 inc. VAT
"Here is another highlight of the vintage. The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia is a dark, moody and sophisticated wine. It does not reveal itself immediately or in any obvious way. Instead, it doses out its intensity in careful measurements. The whole performance is seductive to say the least. That slow momentum leads to dark cherry with spice, grilled herb, wet earth and dried rose. Felsina's Riserva Rancia is a very elegant wine, both on the nose and in the mouth." - Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Marchesi Antinori “Solaia” Magnum 2011

R9,100.00 inc. VAT
"Blackberry jam, cassis, grilled herbs and melted road tar meld together in the 2011 Solaia. Another super-exotic, racy 2011 from Antinori, Solaia is supremely beautiful. Mocha, espresso and sage are some of the many notes that add complexity. Hints of white truffle, lavender, smoke and licorice are laced into the exotic, racy finish. In 2011, Solaia has a dollop more of Cabernet Franc in the blend, added to give the wine a touch of freshness. Ripe and flashy to the core, the 2011 needs time to lose some of its youthful exuberance. At times, the 2011 could be easily mistaken for a wine from Napa Valley, such is its intensity." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Marchesi Antinori “Solaia” Magnum 2012

R8,795.00 inc. VAT
"The 2012 Solaia is the ultimate comfort wine: It serves as a beautiful monument to the potential of Italian wine. Let me give you some context. My lukewarm review of the 2011 vintage caused some heads to turn. Happily, the previous vintage has served as a springboard for this current release. Both 2011 and 2012 come from hot climatic conditions, but these wines are very different in style and content. The 2011 heat softened the lines that make up the varietal identity of this celebrated Tuscan blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese. Those lines are presented in sharp focus with the 2012 edition. The nose is redolent of dark berry, crushed mineral, plum, spice and touch of white pepper. The wine is integrated and seamless, but it speaks with a strong and articulate voice." - Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
