Domaine Méo-Camuzet Bourgogne-Hautes Côtes de Nuits Clos St. Philibert Monopoly 2018

"There is good freshness to the softly exotic aromas of mostly white orchard fruit that is trimmed in lychee nut nuances. The forward, supple and easy-going flavors are delicious and sufficiently forward that this should drink well shortly after release."- Allen Meadows, Burghound

Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Chardonnay 2020

R400.00 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

Damascene W.O. Stellenbosch Chenin Blanc 2020

Damascene W.O. Stellenbosch Chenin Blanc 2020, "A blend of three mountainous Stellenbosch vineyards. The wine is supremely expressive of these distinct sites, with soils of pure shale, Greywacke and granite; aromatics of waxy flowers popping open in the breeze, crushed lime, smoked honey and wet stone. Harmonious. Yellow peaches are bright and sun-kissed on the palate, while the density of fruit - tangy apricot, mango and caramelised pineapple - is pithy and mouth-coating. The mineral acidity carries all the richness of the fruit into a refreshing finish with hints of toasty nuts on the tail." - Winemaker's notes

R395.00 inc. VAT
100% Roussanne with grapes sourced from granitic soils in Mauves. The wine is 100% barrel fermented and is aged for 14 months in barrique.

Domaine Moreux-Corty Pouilly-Fumé Artisan La Loge aux Moines 2019

This is the flagship wine from a domaine whose history stretches back to the 17th century and which is being revitalised by the current (14th) generation of owners, brothers Arnaud and Julien. These are serious wines, an incredible expression of Pouilly-Fumé. The 4.5ha south-facing parcel of vines that make La Loge aux Moines (The Monks' Lodge) is planted on Kimmeridgian marl with a very high proportion of active limestone. Wines from this plot are characterised by great precision, minerality and structure. It's an austere style, with faintly smoky, herby aromas that hint at great concentration beneath. A delicious expression of Pouilly-Fumé, made with great finesse.- Amy Wislocki, Decanter

Domaine Moreux-Corty Pouilly-Fumé Artisan Caillottes 2019

The 2019 Pouilly-Fumé Corty Artisan Caillottes is rounded, supple and full-bodied, albeit rather languid. There's a sense of weight that makes this wine move rather slowly, without a line of acidity to keep it fresh – perhaps a consequence of the warm, dry vintage. You can expect bruised apple fruit and hay on the short finish. - Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous

Newton Johnson Southend Chardonnay 2020

R225.00 inc. VAT
“Condensed flavours elevated by this vineyard’s rapier – like freshness. Ripe limes & waxy honeycomb are illuminated by sharp ginger and lemon zest, with an airy scent of jasmine. Succulent citrus fruit in the mouth, ladled with lees texture and buttery brioche, narrowing to a racy, lively finish.” – 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

Alheit Vineyards Hereafter Here 2020

Alheit Vineyards Hereafter Here 2020, "The wine is full-bodied and bright, lovely nose of pear juice, yellow fruit and blossoms, very fine palate, rich enough for the table, refreshing enough to be an apéritif. See for yourself." - Winemaker's notes

Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Chardonnay 2017

R365.01 inc. VAT
Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Chardonnay 2017, "Abundant layers of complex flavour growing increasingly luminescent and steely in the glass. Lucid ripe citrus and white peach are inured with ornate spices and lime zest . The fleshiness of the wine sways and eases the razor sharp purity of the Granite soil influence. The brittle crunch in the structure hems in the lush texture, with an elongated thread of grape acid resonating in the finish." Winemaker's notes

Poderi Aldo Conterno ‘Bussiador’ Langhe Chardonnay 2016

R1,110.00 inc. VAT
"The “Bussiador” is a wine with a good structure and good body, and so it can stand a long ageing." - Winemaker's notes

Maison de Montille Saint Romain Village 2018

R650.00 inc. VAT
Maison de Montille Saint Romain 2018 "A cooler and airier nose presents notes of lemon grass, green apple and a suggestion of pear. The sleek, intense and well-detailed flavors flash more evident minerality on the punch and delicious finish that could also use a bit more depth. However, given how forward this is, it's very likely that this is a wine where what you see is what you get."- Allen Meadows, Burghound

Maison de Montille Montagny 1er Cru “Les Coères” 2018

R650.00 inc. VAT
Maison de Montille Montagny 1er Cru "Les Coères" 2018 "This is not aromatically dissimilar from the Bourgogne though here there is a whiff of the exotic and in particular, white peach. There is better volume and punch to the delicious and racy middle weight flavors where the minerality is more pronounced, all wrapped in a bone-dry, crisp and steely finish. Blind, this could pass for a good Chablis without the youthful austerity." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Maison de Montille Bourgogne Blanc 2018

R494.99 inc. VAT
"A barely perceptible application of wood sets off layered aromas of petrol, citrus and freshly slice pear. There is both good volume and verve to the rich yet crisp and crunchy flavors that exude hints of minerality and bitter lemon on the refreshing finish. This is a quality Bourgogne and worth a look." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine de Montille Bourgogne “Le Clos du Château” Blanc 2018

"This is aromatically similar to the Bourgogne with just a bit more freshness that extends to the more energetic medium weight flavors that possess lovely intensity that slowly builds as the lingering, dry and crisp finish sits on the palate. This is an excellent Bourgogne and worthy of your interest." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Michel Lafarge Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Aigrots Blanc 2018

"A more floral-infused nose freely offers up its aromas of very fresh white-fleshed fruit, citrus zest and a touch of mineral reduction. The sleek, intense and even stonier middle weight flavors are actually not quite as concentrated though they are a bit finer on the clean, dry and relatively tightly wound finish. This balanced and attractive effort should reward up to a decade of cellaring." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses 2018

R1,365.00 inc. VAT
Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses 2018, "This is one of the most elegant wines in the range with its cool and admirably airy and pure aromas of citrus zest, oyster shell, seashore and gentle wood nuances. The mouthfeel of the medium-bodied flavors combines volume with refinement while delivering excellent length on the balanced, stony and markedly dry finale. This is not quite as concentrated or complex as the best here but as it usually is, it's a marvelous wine of refinement and punch."- Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos 2018

R1,695.00 inc. VAT
Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos 2018, "Once again, the nose is both fresh and ripe and while it's not quite as elegant and airy as the Côte Bouguerots there is every bit as much classic Chablis character along with a hint of honey. There is a really lovely mouthfeel to the sappy large-bodied flavors thanks to the copious quantity of dry extract that also serves to buffer the firm acid spine on the powerful, punchy and beautifully persistent finale. Like several of the wines in the range, this would benefit substantially from developing more depth though it should be able to do just that over time."- Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Premier Cru Vaulorent 2018

R995.00 inc. VAT
Domaine William Fevre Chablis Premier Cru “Vaulorent” 2018, "Not surprisingly this is aromatically similar to the Fourchaume though here there is a whiff of wood in evidence. The slightly sleeker and finer medium-bodied flavors possess good power and punch while remaining refined and composed on the impressively long and well-balanced finale." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Premier Cru Vaillons 2018

R695.00 inc. VAT
Domaine William Fevre Chablis Premier Cru Vaillons 2018, "A cool, pure and citrus-tinged nose speaks of oyster shell, iodine and discreet green apple nuances. There is a fine sense of energy to the crisp, minerally and racy flavors that deliver solid length on the bone dry finish that already displays very good complexity. Lovely stuff and worth checking out." - Allen Meadows, Burghound
