Château D’Yquem Sauternes 2013

R6,500.00 inc. VAT
"Firstly, you notice the color, which is a touch deeper than recent vintages at this stage. The bouquet is quite honeyed and rich for Yquem at this early juncture, with subtle scents of peach skin, white flowers, and a puff of chalk and frangipane. The palate is viscous on the entry, all about the texture at first, coating the mouth with luscious botrytized fruit. There are touches of Seville orange marmalade, fresh apricot, a hint of spice and passion fruit. This is imbued with impressive depth and weight, perhaps an Yquem that is determined to make an impression after last year-s absence. It might not possess the finesse of a top flight Yquem, but it has immense power and persistency." - Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate

Champagne Pol Roger Brut Vintage 2013

"Pol Roger 2013 Brut Vintage displays an enticing pale golden hue underpinned by a vivid and elegant cord. The nose immediately exudes a complex bouquet of almond, cashew nut, small candied seeds, harmoniously counterbalanced by its vibrant sensation of youth and lightness mingling with mineral and floral fragrances.Then as the wine opens up in the glass, the scents of toast and Viennese pastries reveal all their richness and intensity. The mouth tingles under its seductive attack, crisp, fresh, acidulous, and yet full of roundness and suppleness. Then comes a long lasting intense aftertaste with hints of white flowers." - Winemaker's notes

Chateau Musar Red 2013

R695.00 inc. VAT
The 2013 Chateau Musar is bold, punchy and intensely perfumed. Rose petal, ripe red fruit, sage, mint, cinnamon and sweet tobacco give the 2013 a very strong aromatic presence that continues to build. Medium in body, with lovely red fruit character, the 2013 Musar could use a few years in bottle to fully come together. I expect it will always have a strong pungent signature.- Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Oremus Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos 2013

R1,100.00 inc. VAT
"Citrus, peach and apricot aromas characterize the nose of this Aszú 5 Puttonyos 2013; Rich, intense on the palate with a long aftertaste of orange blossom and spices. Along with 2008, vintage 2013 was the second greatest vintage of the millennium for sweet wines. Extraordinary in quality and quantity." Winemaker's note
