Champagne Lanson Le Rosé Label Brut Non-Vintage

R1,325.00 inc. VAT
Champagne Lanson Le Rosé Label Brut Non-Vintage, Based on the 2014 vintage and disgorged in December 2019 with eight grams per liter dosage, Lanson's NV Brut Le Rosé is showing nicely, offering up aromas of peach, crisp orchard fruit, pink grapefruit and warm brioche. Medium to full-bodied, chiseled and incisive, with a racy spine of acidity and a pretty pinpoint mousse, it concludes with a saline finish. This is quite tightly wound out of the gates, and I suspect it possesses a bit of upside. - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

Champagne Lanson Noble Cuvée Blanc de Blancs 2004

R3,195.00 inc. VAT
"Disgorged in September 2021, Lanson's 2004 Brut Blanc de Blancs Noble Cuvée Millésime is showing beautifully, offering up aromas of buttery pastry, beeswax, dried white flowers and crisp orchard fruit. Medium to full-bodied, ample and pillowy, with a vibrant and enveloping core of fruit, racy acids and a pretty pinpoint mousse, it's a charming wine that's evolving slowly." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

Champagne Lanson Noble Cuvée Brut 2004

R2,850.00 inc. VAT
"Lanson's recently released 2004 Brut Vintage Noble is drinking well, offering up attractive aromas of buttery pastry, macadamia nuts, citrus zest, dried white flowers and bee pollen, followed by a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and incisive palate that's charming but chiseled, with the open-knit profile of the vintage tempering the taut, even somewhat austere house style at this address." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

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

Keermont Syrah 2018

R320.00 inc. VAT
"The "basic" Keermont Syrah uses grapes from the Topside, Steepside and Sweetwater vineyards and is something of a bargain given its quality. Paired with 10% Mourvèdre, this is alluringly perfumed and exotic, with lavender and wild thyme aromas, bramble, pomegranate and black cherry flavours and supple tannins." - Tim Atkin MW

Keermont “Pondokrug” Cabernet Franc 2018

R595.00 inc. VAT
"I love Cabernet Franc", says Alex Starey, and you can see why when he produces wines that are as good as this single vineyard expression from Stellenbosch Mountain. Perfumed, stylish and well crafted, it has the elegance and precision of its cooler site, good underlying structure and classic black cherry, bay leaf and pencil shaving notes." Tim Atkin MW

Keermont Topside Syrah 2018

R595.00 inc. VAT
"Syrah lovers could spend a long time discussing the relative merits of Alex Starey's single parcel Syrahs. I have a very slight preference for Topside in 2018, partly because its cooler terroir on Stellenbosch Mountain was well suited to the drought conditions of the vintage. Restrained, focused and built to age in bottle, it has sage and oregano perfume, savoury tannins, refreshing acidity and minerality and flavours of plum, raspberry, red cherry and tobacco leaf." - Tim Atkin MW

Keermont Riverside Chenin Blanc 2020

R570.00 inc. VAT
"Sourced from a single, old-vine block close to the river on the Keermont farm, this is a layered, effortlessly complete Chenin Blanc from Alex Starey that displays a lovely medley of nectarine, apple and honey flavours, subtle wood spices and a long, slightly salty finish." - Tim Atkin MW

Keermont Steepside Syrah 2018

R595.00 inc. VAT
"It's good to see a top Cape Syrah released with a little bottle age, especially when it’s as good as this one from a warm, north-facing site on clay soils. Complex, dense and voluptuous, it has garrigue and tarragon aromas, understated oak and flavours of cooked meat, tapenade, damson and blackberry. Superb." - Tim Atkin MW

Prosecco San Leo Brut Non-Vintage

R275.00 inc. VAT
Colour, bright pale straw-yellow; a fine, clear mousse with a very delicate perlage. Bouquet, Attractively intense, very fruity and aromatic, with hints of wisteria flowers and Rennet apples. Flavor, very well-balanced and appealing, with the extremely delicate almond note that is typical of Glera grapes. - Winemakers notes

Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Falkirk Grenache 2021

R520.00 inc. VAT
"At just seven years of age, the vines are still young, but this Grenache suggests that the variety has a future in the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. Concentrated, grippy and sappy, it has savoury tannins, plum and redcurrant fruit and nicely understated oak" - Tim Atkin MW

Champagne Pol Roger Brut Vintage 2018

R1,795.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Brut Vintage, with a dosage of seven grams per liter, exhibits a delicate bouquet of ripe orchard fruits, pineapple, peach, sweet spices and pastry, followed by a full-bodied, rich and elegantly creamy mid-palate that segues into a fleshy core of fruit with a penetrating, long and saline finish. Admirers of Pol Roger’s style will love it." - Yohan Castaing, The Wine Advocate

Champagne Pol Roger Blanc de Blancs Vintage 2015

R1,750.00 inc. VAT
Champagne Pol Roger Blanc de Blancs 2015, "After the pillowy, chiseled 2013, Pol Roger's 2015 Brut Blanc de Blancs is cut from richer, broader cloth. Offering up aromas of crisp golden orchard fruit, white flowers and subtle hints of warm biscuits, it's full-bodied, broad and vinous, with a fleshy core of fruit, lively acids and a precise, chalky finish. In style, it's reminiscent of a somewhat more sun-kissed version of the 2012 rendition." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

Champagne Pol Roger Pure Extra-Brut Non-Vintage

R1,495.00 inc. VAT
"Based on the 2015 vintage and disgorged with around 30 grams per liter dosage, the latest release of Pol Roger's NV Demi Sec Rich is showing beautifully, offering up aromas of honeycomb, ripe pears, brioche, frangipane and candied peel. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, it's elegantly textural, with racy acids, nicely integrated sugar and a precise finish. This works very well with certain desserts—think fruit tarts made with flaky pâte sucrée—and will pick up additional complexity, making it even more versatile at the table, with bottle age." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
