Steytler 1947 Chenin Blanc 2021

"From 74 year old vines, the aromatics are super complex and spicy with lovely nuances of wet straw, dusty white citrus, honied yellow peaches, fynbos and sweet pineapple confit. There is such focused depth, full bodied plump texture and complexity with fabulous nuances of tangerine peel, naartjie pulp, lychee concentrate and a honied bon bon intensity. A super impressive wine with power, breadth and weight but a balancing harmonious acidity. The true personification of delicious old vine Chenin Blanc statesmanship. World class from every angle. Drink now and over the next 25 years" – Greg Sherwood MW

François Cotat Sancerre Les Culs de Beaujeu 2019

R750.00 inc. VAT
Cuvée Cul de Beaujeu is a grand terroir of Sancerre, a cru on Kimméridgian marl. When tasting, it stands out for its smoky and mineral aromas and exotic fruit. Full and round, on the palate the mineral and exotic fruit flavours abound. Highly elegant, it has good ageing potential.

François Cotat Sancerre Les Caillottes 2019

R550.00 inc. VAT
This comes from parcels around the village of Chavignol, on the chalky limestone soils. It is the most approachable and early drinking of the Cotat range, but even this will improve over many years. It is juicy and long, concentrated but weightless.

BLANKbottle Hinterhofkabuff 2021

R375.00 inc. VAT
"Some of my German clients think that the "branding" of "IM HINTERHOFKABUFF" was neatly thought through, specially and specifically designed to enter and crack the German wine market for BLANKbottle. And yes, the fact that I called the wine a dialect/regional/nickname sort of German name does make the wine sell in Germany. But the truth is that I cannot take credit for it at all, I am just not all that strategical. The truth is: it fell in my lap.Early in 2010, a journalist writing for a huge German magazine called the "Stern" phoned me. He was writing an article on South African wineries to visit, aiming it at touring soccer world cup fans. At the time and still today my office is located next to my winery in a very old dilapidated barn type of building. When I moved in I transferred the run-down barn into a personal office/lounge with a nice Friday braai facility at the back. No flags, no signage, no fountains - just a run-down building with skew walls and heaps of soul.I told that very persistent German journalist that he could not meet me at the office, that we should rather try a coffee shop. It's much nicer. As you know, some people don't take no for an answer, and he was one of them. So he came out to the farm, loved all of it and spent almost 3 hours with me tasting wine and taking pictures.Three months later my sister-in-law living in Switzerland phoned me to say that there was a massive article on South African wineries in the Stern and that BLANKbottle featured. So she emailed me the article and with the help of family, I started to decipher the article. This guy kept on using the word HINTERHOFKABUFF whenever he referred to my office. So I looked it up. In old Berlin, Germany, a typical residential property would have the main house where the owner lived, and then had a sort of second house at the back called the HINTERHOF where a second family would live. And at the back of the HINTERHOF, they usually had a KABUFF. Which was a little garden sort of shack-house for the very poor people to live in. So the direct translation of HINTERHOFKABUFF - BACKYARDSHACK...I took an immediate liking to the name and my mom made a sign for my office. "The Hinterhofkabuff". So when I made my first Weisser Riesling, a varietal that originated in the Rhine Valley Germany - it was logical to find a proper German name for it. Hence: Im Hinterhofkabuff!" - Winemaker's notes

Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Village 2020

R494.99 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

BLANKbottle Makstokkie 2021

R280.00 inc. VAT
This is a Swartland 100% Verdelho.

Castello ColleMassari Melacce Montecucco Vermentino 2020

R225.00 inc. VAT
Castello ColleMassari Melacce Montecucco Vermentino 2020, "Sweet apples, pears, white flowers and hints of candied lime create an inviting bouquet as the 2020 Vermentino Melacce Montecucco blossoms in the glass. This is soft, round and soothing, with white stone fruits and minerals under an air of pretty inner florals. It tapers off fresh and honeyed with a flourish of salty minerals that adds wonderful contrasts. The 2020 may not have the energy of the 2019, but it’s a fine effort all the same." - Eric Guido, Vinous

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 1er Cru – “La Romanée” 2019

"A whiff of the exotic is present on the aromas of white peach, citrus confit and passion fruit. There is excellent punch and detail to the intensely stony medium-bodied flavors that conclude in a bone-dry and impressively long if somewhat lean finale. This is very, very tightly wound and as such I suspect that the finish will eventually flesh out and my rating assumes that this will occur over time." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru “La Maltroie” 2019

"The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet Maltroye 1er Cru has a fragrant, chalk dust scented bouquet that opens nicely with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a lightly spiced opening, touches of orange rind and marmalade lending a welcome tanginess. It might not be a long-term Chassagne, though it is thoroughly enjoyable" - Neal Martin, Vinous

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 1er Cru “Morgeot” 2019

"A pretty and much more floral nose features mostly ripe white orchard fruit and lemon rind scents. The rich, opulent and concentrated medium-bodied flavors possess fine length on the balanced finish that is shaped by citrus-tinged acidity. This too is lovely" - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2019

"Like the La Romanée, this too flirts with hints of exotic on the white and yellow fruit, passion fruit and jasmine tea aromas. The caressing and seductively textured bigger-bodied flavors possess good power on the lemony, very dry and impressively lengthy finish. I would add that this too is rather tightly wound, and I would advise holding it for at least 5 years first." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 1er Cru – “Les Caillerets” 2019

"Smoky aromas of green apple and bright citrus introduce rich, appealingly textured and intense medium weight flavors that exude a subtle bead of minerality on the bone-dry, moderately austere and solidly persistent finish. Here too some patience is advised." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Poderi Aldo Conterno Bussiador Langhe Chardonnay 2017

R995.00 inc. VAT
"This beautiful Chardonnay opens to spicy intensity with dried apricot and tropical fruit, all presented with heightened intensity and volume. The Poderi Aldo Conterno 2017 Langhe Chardonnay Bussiador is ripe and round with hints of yellow candy and ripe fruit. These opulent and softly voluptuous fruit flavors wrap smoothly over the palate. The finish is silky and fine with distant hints of crushed stone or mineral. Some 8,000 bottles were made." -Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Chardonnay 2020

R415.00 inc. VAT
"We want our Chardonnays to last," says Gordy Newton Johnson, and this one certainly will. Made with grapes from three sites - two north- and one south-facing, this is a very complete, balanced wine, with 30% new wood, citrus, oatmeal and cinnamon spice flavours, pithy acidity, a drizzle of cream and commendable palate length. "- Tim Atkin MW

Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos 2019 Magnum

"If Kimmeridgian could be distilled, it would likely smell exactly like the nose of the 2019 Les Clos with the addition of wet chalk, citrus zest and oyster shell. There is equally good delineation to the snappy, painfully intense and overtly stony large-bodied flavors that deliver superb length on the balanced finale. This elegant and classy effort is also built on a base of almost pungent minerality and a wine that should age effortlessly"- Allen Meadows, Burghound

Poderi Aldo Conterno ‘Bussiador’ Langhe Chardonnay 2016

"The “Bussiador” is a wine with a good structure and good body, and so it can stand a long ageing." - Winemaker's notes

Oremus Tokaji Mandolás Dry Furmint 2019

R365.00 inc. VAT
"A steady transformation from the first vintage of 2000. A lively wine with aromas of fennel, white flowers and honey. The palate is fresh with lime leaf and a mineral edge. There’s a light oak complexity from part fermentation in Hungarian oak, followed by part ageing for six months. The growing intensity and complexity of the vintages shows the continued work in recuperating old Furmint clones." - Sarah Jane Evans MW, Decanter
