BLANKbottle Boberg 2020

R280.00 inc. VAT
"2015 was the first year that I bought the grapes from this Vineyard. The Farmer calls the vineyard BOBERG, which means “on top of the Mountain”. It was a neglected little vineyard, old bush vines with no irrigation. The farmer identified it as a site with potential and started with a restoration process. The vineyard grows in decomposed granitic soil in Wellington. The site is cooler than the others in the area. I used it in 2015 as a component in the Moment of Silence blend. The vineyard seemed to produce a high acid even though it grows in extreme conditions. In 2016 and 2017 the farmer decided to move farming practises from conventional farming to organic. Boberg is now organically certified. He also installed irrigation to enable it to sustain heat waves during warm parts of summer." - Producer Note

Newton Johnson Sauvignon Blanc 2020

R115.00 inc. VAT
"Fine, crystalline character with traces of flint. Old world complexity with delicate quince fruit and white asparagus, with wafts of perfumed autumn fynbos and withering flower petals. A dense sheet of texture with weight and persistence, gripping the palate into a lengthy finish." - Producer Note

Vega Sicilia Unico Reserva Especial 2020

To be released in 2020, the NV Único Reserva Especial 2020 Release is a non-vintage blend of 59 barrels from 2008, 2009 and 2010, mostly Tempranillo with some Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine has been getting closer to the style of the Único, and the blend is from vintages very close to the current release of Único, but somehow this year I think the blend has added some complexity to the bottled wine, which has the heart and soul of the 2010 vintage. In fact, they told me they are keeping more wine to have some older vintages to blend for this Reserva Especial, because in the last few years, the wine has been a little too young for the style that it used to have in the past. This has finesse and some of the Burgundian style of the blends of yesteryear. 17,071 bottles and 214 magnums produced. It was bottled in June 2016.
