Ronco del Gnemiz Friulano “Buri Bellaria” 2021

R950.00 inc. VAT
"The 2021 Friulano Buri Bellaria is smoky and mineral in the glass, with pretty herbal tones and green apples giving way to dashes of candied ginger. This is silky, nearly oily in texture, with an opulent mix of ripe melon and candied citrus. The acidity saves the day, perfectly crisp and cleansing, bringing a hint of tropical kiwi and florals into the mix, as the 2021 finishes with outstanding length. The Bellaria is more sensual than the San Zuan, yet both are equally enjoyable." - Eric Guido, Vinous

Ronco del Gnemiz Sauvignon Blanc “Péri” 2021

R950.00 inc. VAT
"The 2021 Sauvignon Blanc Peri whisps up from the glass with a nuanced bouquet, blending savory spices with dusty florals and pear. It's supremely silky and supple, yet lifted as well, placing minerality before fruit but then closes with a pretty inner sweetness. Zests of lemon and lime mingle with savory spice and sage as the 2021 leaves the palate buzzing with residual tension." - Eric Guido, Vinous

Ronco-Gnemiz Chardonnay Sol 2021

R950.00 inc. VAT
"The 2021 Chardonnay Sol is quite restrained and delicate in the glass with floral nuances, crushed stones and lime. It's much more expressive on the palate, with brisk acidity giving life to its mineral-inflected orchard fruits. This tapers off with a pretty inner sweetness offsetting its youthful concentration, leaving hints of floral-laced apple and pear. The 2021 will take some time to come fully into focus." - Eric Guido, Vinous

Damascene W.O. Swartland Chenin blanc 2022

"The 2022 Chenin Blanc (Swartland) is whole cluster pressed and matured in 1,000-liter Oval Austrian vats for 11 months. The very precise nose has lemon thyme and light red apple scents, with just a touch of orange rind in the background. The palate has a lovely texture with a slightly resinous mouthfeel, yellow fruit mixed with ginger and marmalade, and a light twist of bitter lemon lending tension on the finish. Fine length. A very classy Chenin." - Neal Martin, Vinous

Damascene W.O. Stellenbosch Chenin Blanc 2022

"The 2022 Chenin Blanc from Stellenbosch comes from vines on Greywacke, shale and granite soils planted between 1972 and 1981, whole cluster pressed and aged in oval Austrian foudres. This has a little more presence on the nose and is more outgoing with yellow plum, nectarine, peach skin and hints of red fruit. There is real complexity, becoming ever more minerally with aeration. The palate is very well-balanced with a little more viscosity and lees expression, lightly spiced with a vivacious saline finish. There is a sense of completeness here. Superb." - Neal Martin, Vinous

Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Chardonnay 2022

R494.99 inc. VAT
Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Chardonnay 2022, "Blending three different components from both sides of the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, this is a beautifully judged Chardonnay from a South African master of the variety. Voluptuous and textured, yet focused and energetic at the same time, it has struck match top notes, 22% new oak, citrus and vanilla spice flavours and a pithy, salty finish." - Tim Atkin MW

J.L. Chave Sélection Saint-Joseph Blanc “Circa” 2021

R494.99 inc. VAT
" Composed of 100% Roussanne, the 2021 Saint Joseph Circa Blanc is terrific. Offering a classic perfume of ripe pears, honeycomb, quince, and sappy flowers, it picks up a beautiful sense of minerality with time in the glass. Medium-bodied, nicely concentrated, rich, and layered, it's one heck of an impressive Northern Rhône white that's going to shine for at least 3-5 years, and I wouldn't be surprised to see it have an interesting evolution over the coming decade." - Jeb Dunnuck

François Cotat Sancere Grande Côte 2020

R1,050.00 inc. VAT
"The 2020 Sancerre La Grande Côte is a fine wine with a piercing nose of floral and flint. While it may be dry, it offers a sensation of sweet fruit and high alcohol (14.5%), which Cotat compares to the ripe 2009 and 1990 vintages. Being late-picked and on a south slope, these grapes get ripe, and in this vintage, I can't help but think that the balance has been slightly knocked by this ripeness. That said, it offers delectable texture and sinew and remains an impressive wine. Tasting the 2009 Cul de Beaujeu soon after, high alcohol (15%) remains evident with bottle age." - Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous

François Cotat Sancerre Caillottes 2020

R795.00 inc. VAT
"There's a gentleness to the 2020 Sancerre Caillotttes and a sensation of sweetness despite its evidently being a dry white. Open, seductive and textural, it offers delightful floral characters and ripe fruit. There's a touch of alcoholic warmth on the finish, but that’s nitpicking." - Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous

David & Nadia Chenin Blanc 2022

R410.00 inc. VAT
"This is the biggest production Chenin Blanc from David and Nadia Sadie, sourced from eight different old-vine parcels and now amounting to 16,000 bottles. Granite-based with other components on shale, clay and limestone, it's a nuanced, effortlessly balanced white with notes of aniseed, oatmeal, wet stone and pithy citrus and yellow apple fruit." - Tim Atkin MW

David & Nadia “Rondevlei” Chenin Blanc 2022

"As vineyards go, Rondevlei sounds relatively unexciting - it's a flat, 1.7-hectare parcel on red sand, but the wine it produces is thrilling. Made with five different components, it’s what David Sadie calls a "salt-driven" Chenin Blanc, with a noticeably maritime influence. Sappy and slightly ferrous, it has notes of kelp and citrus and a focused, tangy, engaging finish." - Tim Atkin MW

David & Nadia “Skaliekop” Chenin Blanc 2022

"Late picked from a parcel on shale and clay soils, Skaliekop is the richest and most exotic of David and Nadia Sadie's brilliant range of single vineyard Chenin Blancs. Showing some of the concentration of the 2022 vintage, it has layers of pear and stone fruit and the underlying freshness and minerality that are typical of the couple's wines." - Tim Atkin MW

David & Nadia Chenin Blanc 2022 Magnum

R860.00 inc. VAT
“This is the biggest production Chenin Blanc from David and Nadia Sadie, sourced from eight different old-vine parcels and now amounting to 16,000 bottles. Granite-based with other components on shale, clay and limestone, it’s a nuanced, effortlessly balanced white with notes of aniseed, oatmeal, wet stone and pithy citrus and yellow apple fruit.” – Tim Atkin MW

Rall Grenache Blanc 2022

R275.00 inc. VAT
Rall Grenache Blanc 2022, "Donovan Rall gets all of his Grenache Blanc from two vineyards in Piekenierskloof these days, fermenting the result in concrete eggs. Taut, pithy, focused and mouth-wateringly fresh, it has a lovely interplay between lees, minerality and lemon juice and orange zest flavours." - Tim Atkin MW

Alheit Vineyards Hereafter Here 2022

R310.99 inc. VAT
"Hereafter Here is Chris Alheit's biggest-production Chenin Blanc, made from five different sources in Stellenbosch and the Swartland. The vines are mostly younger, producing a wine that's comparatively immediate, with a nice interplay between peach an green apple fruit and impressive brightness for a 2022 release." - Tim Atkin MW

BLANKbottle Seelug 2022

R350.00 inc. VAT
BLANKbottle Seelug 2022, "Did it go through malolactic fermentation," I asked Pieter Walser. "I didn’t even check," he replied. But who cares? This is a delightful new Chardonnay from a sea breeze-influenced site on the Lower Heldeberg, showing notes of honey, fresh dough and lemon butter and a fresh, zesty finish." - Tim Atkin MW

Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Village 2020

R575.00 inc. VAT
Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Village 2020, "An expressive and airy nose reflects notes of mineral reduction, green fruit and plenty of citrus influence. There is slightly better density and a more attractive texture to the delicious flavors that flash good minerality on the dry, balanced and moderately firm finish. This is worth a look for its level." - Allen Meadow's, Burghound

Oremus Tokaji Mandolás Dry Furmint 2020

R450.00 inc. VAT
"Mandolás Furmint 2020 is a young, fruity wine with a fresh nose and aroma, but with body and a lively tone of acidity. As 2020 was a cold vintage, freshness and floral aromas characterise this Mandolás. " - Winemaker's notes

Domaine du Clos Naudin Foreau Vouvray Demi-Sec 2016

R675.00 inc. VAT
"The 2016 Demi-Sec is absolutely delectable and impeccably balanced. Tender and succulent at first, offering exotic mango-like fruit flavors, the naturally lithe acidity carries this wine through while the tropical fruit coats the mouth, leaving a heady fragrance. This is a wine to enjoy for its suave yet athletic frame." - Rebecca Gibb MW, The Wine Advocate

Domaine Guiberteau Saumur Blanc Clos de Guichaux 2020

R695.00 inc. VAT
"This cuvée comes from a warm terroir in Épieds, south-east of Brézé. It has been matured in barrel for one year, and has seen no malolactic fermentation. Aromatically this feels attractively challenging, with suggestions of crushed rocks and saline minerals. There is a touch of roast to the fruits, led by peach and apricot, spiced up with star anise. The palate shows the same spiced-fruit melange, infused with a little powdered chalk, before a lightly bitter finish. With a good length, this is a promising start" - Chris Kissack, The Wine Doctor
