Steytler Vision 2021

R740.00 inc. VAT
"Power & concentration, within a tightly woven structure showing lots of promise. Generous cassis and black berries as well as vanilla and spice from oak. Complex & multi dimensional. Those who can resist the temptation will be rewarded well with cellaring." - Winemaker's notes

Keermont Amphitheatre 2016

R695.00 inc. VAT
"The 2016 Keermont Amphitheatre, a Bordeaux blend matured in seasoned oak for 20 months, has a pretty, floral bouquet with raspberry, wild strawberry and a very light lavender scent that percolates through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshy opening, fine acidity, decent structure and grip with a lightly spiced finish. You could drink this now, but it will age in bottle for a decade or more." - Neal Martin, Vinous

Anwilka Red Blend 2019

R480.00 inc. VAT
"The 2019 Anwilka is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon with 30% Syrah. The nose opens with subtle Syrah notes of red peppercorn and smoked meats before moving to dusty red and black fruit aromas. Full-bodied, layered and fresh, the palate reveals the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon, with soft herbal essences, bitter black tea and delicate olive notes. Graphite and pencil shavings follow across the mid-palate. The wine continues to unwind over the long lingering, mineral-laced, food-friendly finish. This rested for 20 months in all French oak, 50% of which was new, before being bottled." - Anthony Mueller, The Wine Advocate

Anwilka Red Blend 2018

R480.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Anwilka offers a delightful refinement and finesse, wafting with layers of dusty red fruit, oak and elegant red flowers. Medium to full-bodied, the palate provides balanced tannins with lively acidity that lingers across the mid-palate through the ever-evolving finish without showing any greenness. Give it a try." - Anthony Mueller, The Wine Advocate

Anwilka Red Blend 2017

R480.00 inc. VAT
"Riding the line between the New World and Old World expressions, the 2017 Anwilka begins with aromas of dusty blackberry, ripe plum, cedar and cigar spice before notions of graphite, sage and wet river rocks waft from the glass. Medium to full-bodied, it has a ripe yet rustic mouthfeel, energetic acidity and fine-grained tannins that lift the mid-palate. As the wine sits in the mouth, it continues to somersault and reveal its elegance and complexity over the persistent and elongated finish. This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot rested for 19 months in French oak, of which 50% were first fill. It's drinking great now, but just give it one more year in the bottle and drink through the middle of the next decade." - Anthony Mueller, The Wine Advocate

Anwilka Red Blend 2016

R480.00 inc. VAT
"Bursting from the glass, the 2016 Anwilka has elegant oak tones that play with a juicy fruit structure. Dark cherry, blackberry and plums all dance with mocha tones and oak spices that integrate seamlessly together. The wine is full-bodied on the palate, with a ripe attack of bold, concentrated fruit and a balanced structure with grippy tannins that hang on the gumline, leaving flavors of bitter dark chocolate and coffee bean. Ending with a long, drawn-out finish, it continues to evolve on the palate long after the wine has left the mouth. This is a serious wine for collectors." - Anthony Mueller, The Wine Advocate

Anwilka Red Blend 2014

R625.00 inc. VAT
"Bright and deep ruby in appearance. An upfront nose displays aromas of red fruit and cherries with toasted spices. The palate is fresh and vibrant on entry with a balanced acidity, supple tannins and elegant texture." - Winemaker's notes

Anwilka Red Blend 2013

R685.00 inc. VAT
"The 2013 Anwilka is a blend of 62% Syrah, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Petit Verdot. It has an attractive raspberry coulis and crushed strawberry bouquet with well-integrated oak. The palate is smooth on the entry with supple red berry fruit laced with bay leaf and clove, leading to a very composed finish that seems more elegant and refined than previous vintages. Bon vin!" - Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate

Anwilka Red Blend 2012

R710.00 inc. VAT
"The 2012 Anwilka is a blend of 87% Shiraz and 13% Cabernet Sauvignon matured in 50% new oak. It has a very pure and well defined bouquet with ebullient blackberry and cedar scents, quite strict at the moment but nicely focused and integrated with the wood. The palate is well balanced with supple tannin, very well judged acidity, and there is a pleasant chewiness in the mouth with rosemary and sage towards the finish. This is a well crafted Anwilka that will benefit from 2-3 years in bottle." - Anthony Mueller, The Wine Advocate

Anwilka Red Blend 2006

R740.00 inc. VAT
"Distinctive freshness and elegance, with ample, mouthfilling blackcurrant fruit and cinnamon flavours. Ripe tannins, in perfect balance with fruit, acid and alcohol, impart sufficient structure and supple texture. Good length, with a positively clean and flavourful finish." - Winemaker's notes

Danie Junior Red Blend 2021

R144.99 inc. VAT
Interesting herbaceous profile, showing earthy, crushed leaf components and even agave, but without any green, bitter elements. The palate is broad, with red fruited accessibility, and the property’s signature structure and firm tannins. Medium bodied.

BLANKbottle The Bomb 2021

R390.00 inc. VAT
"This wine started way back - I bottled a straight 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon from a friend’s farm. The wine was big, but I loved it. After bottling, the Department of Agriculture came back with the final analysis. An alcohol of 16.14% - GOODNESS?! I stacked the wine in the back of the warehouse, not sure what to do with it. I then had a tasting at the Hinterhofkabuff with a German guy called Martin Baulmann, who subsequently became my agent in Germany. We tasted all my wines and at the end he asked me if I had something big for him to taste. "How do you mean; BIG?", I asked. "In colour, extraction, tannin?..."." Like in 15% alcohol...", he replied. "I think I have something even better for you" I said. So I opened a still unlabelled bottle and poured him a glass of what I was planning to name Midnight Call. He loved it and wanted to buy everything. For those of you who do not know Martin: He has a big frame, laughs loudly, and lives large. So afterwards I sat in the Hinterhofkabuff drinking a glass, thinking of this very big guy that loved this very loud wine. It seemed natural to change the name to THE BOMB." Winemaker's notes

BLANKbottle Engelesig 2021

R390.00 inc. VAT
"This is a new wine, it is a Cab/Cab Franc from a little farm called Angles view, Helderberg - home to singer song writer Lesley Rae Dowling." -Winemaker's notes

Domaine Lafarge-Vial Côte de Brouilly 2021

R724.99 inc. VAT
Domaine Lafarge-Vial Côte de Brouilly 2021, "Pretty aromas include those of raspberry, cherry, earth and a suggestion of crushed fennel. This isn't quite as dense but I very much like the sense of energy to the medium weight flavors that possess slightly better depth, though like the Joie du Palais, the balance isn't perfect." - Allen Meadows', Burghound

David & Nadia Grenache Noir 2022 Magnum

R860.00 inc. VAT
"The 2022 vintage humbled us," says David Sadie, but brilliant winemakers shine in adversity. This scented, refined, very lightly wooded Grenache has lots of granite-derived freshness and minerality, red cherry, raspberry and pomegranate flavours and succulent, textured tannins." - Tim Atkin MW

David & Nadia “Elpidios” 2021 Magnum

R860.00 inc. VAT
"Elpidios is a red version of Aristargos in a sense, using five varieties from nine different vineyards. 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

Rall Red 2021

R355.01 inc. VAT
"Released a year later than the rest of the Rall reds to allow the tannins to integrate, this is a serious, structured assemblage of Syrah with 13% Grenache, 7% Carignan and 2% Cinsault. Sappy and grippy, it marries blackberry and damson fruit flavours with understated oak spices and a sturdy, age-worthy finish." - Tim Atkin MW
