Steytler Vision 2021

R740.00 inc. VAT
"Power & concentration, within a tightly woven structure showing lots of promise. Generous cassis and black berries as well as vanilla and spice from oak. Complex & multi dimensional. Those who can resist the temptation will be rewarded well with cellaring." - Winemaker's 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

Castello ColleMassari Melacce Montecucco Vermentino 2021

R250.00 inc. VAT
"Clean Vermentino with a fruity-fresh first sip. Aromas of Granny Smith apple, white peach and sweet limes with a hint of exotic fruits. Crispy and dry on the palate with fantastic minerality. It is a fresh and elegant summer wine, amazing as an aperitif!" - Winemaker's notes

Vega-Sicilia Oremus Furmint Mandolas 2021

R494.99 inc. VAT
"Mandolás Furmint is a young, fruity wine with fresh aromas, yet it is full-bodied and expressive with bright acidity. As 2021 was an extremely cold vintage, this Mandolás shows great freshness and floral aromas. Its vibrant acidity lends this wine enormous ageing potential" - Winemaker's notes

Danie Junior Red Blend 2021

R144.99 inc. VAT
Interesting herbaceous profile, showing earthy, crushed leaf components and even agave, but without any green, bitter elements. The palate is broad, with red fruited accessibility, and the property’s signature structure and firm tannins. Medium bodied.

Garmón Continental 2020

R795.00 inc. VAT
"The 2020 Garmón is a 100% Tempranillo from Ribera del Duero, aged for 20 months in primarily French oak barrels. Purple with a garnet sheen. The fruit-forward nose offers dried plum, blackcurrant and aniseed-like herbs intertwined with oak layers. Dry and plush from the oak, the wine's chalky texture grows more pronounced as it goes on, foregrounding a restrained but juicy, polished, lingering finish. The 2020 is a balanced, modern expression of Ribera del Duero." - Joaquín Hidalgo, Vinous

BLANKbottle The Bomb 2021

R390.00 inc. VAT
"This wine started way back - I bottled a straight 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon from a friend’s farm. The wine was big, but I loved it. After bottling, the Department of Agriculture came back with the final analysis. An alcohol of 16.14% - GOODNESS?! I stacked the wine in the back of the warehouse, not sure what to do with it. I then had a tasting at the Hinterhofkabuff with a German guy called Martin Baulmann, who subsequently became my agent in Germany. We tasted all my wines and at the end he asked me if I had something big for him to taste. "How do you mean; BIG?", I asked. "In colour, extraction, tannin?..."." Like in 15% alcohol...", he replied. "I think I have something even better for you" I said. So I opened a still unlabelled bottle and poured him a glass of what I was planning to name Midnight Call. He loved it and wanted to buy everything. For those of you who do not know Martin: He has a big frame, laughs loudly, and lives large. So afterwards I sat in the Hinterhofkabuff drinking a glass, thinking of this very big guy that loved this very loud wine. It seemed natural to change the name to THE BOMB." Winemaker's notes

BLANKbottle Brave 2021

R390.00 inc. VAT
Scared is what you feel, BRAVE is what you do 2021! This is a new wine. - Winemaker's notes

BLANKbottle Pat Bird 2021

R330.00 inc. VAT
Story to come soon. A 100% Stellenbosch Petit Verdot.

BLANKbottle Engelesig 2021

R390.00 inc. VAT
"This is a new wine, it is a Cab/Cab Franc from a little farm called Angles view, Helderberg - home to singer song writer Lesley Rae Dowling." -Winemaker's notes

BLANKbottle Pierre Le Cois 2021

R390.00 inc. VAT
"The X-factor - The PIERRE-LE-COIS-EFFECT as I call it. The guy and nowadays often, the girl in the bakkie. The eyes who look holistically at the big picture and apply knowledge and experience within the comfort of like minded wise minds - enabling the application of practices to guide these vines to the ultimate expression of themselves. Season upon season. " - Winemaker's notes

Ronco del Gnemiz Sauvignon “Lozeta” 2021

R850.00 inc. VAT
"The 2021 Sauvignon Blanc Lozeta is pungently spicy and intense, with ginger and Sour Patch lime complicated by sage and cut grass. This is opulent and sexy on the palate, with stimulating acidity to balance its note of ripe melon and candied lime. It leaves behind a staining of lemony concentration, finishing spicy and with dramatic length. The younger vines and mix of clones that fill the Lozeta vineyard created a force de tour Sauvignon Blanc in 2021, yet the balance here is gorgeous." - Eric Guido, Vinous

Ronco del Gnemiz Sauvignon Blanc “Péri” 2021

R950.00 inc. VAT
"The 2021 Sauvignon Blanc Peri whisps up from the glass with a nuanced bouquet, blending savory spices with dusty florals and pear. It's supremely silky and supple, yet lifted as well, placing minerality before fruit but then closes with a pretty inner sweetness. Zests of lemon and lime mingle with savory spice and sage as the 2021 leaves the palate buzzing with residual tension." - Eric Guido, Vinous

Ronco-Gnemiz Chardonnay Sol 2021

R950.00 inc. VAT
"The 2021 Chardonnay Sol is quite restrained and delicate in the glass with floral nuances, crushed stones and lime. It's much more expressive on the palate, with brisk acidity giving life to its mineral-inflected orchard fruits. This tapers off with a pretty inner sweetness offsetting its youthful concentration, leaving hints of floral-laced apple and pear. The 2021 will take some time to come fully into focus." - Eric Guido, Vinous

Ronco-Gnemiz Chardonnay Ronco Basso 2021

R735.00 inc. VAT
"An attractive blend of crushed stone, white flowers, apple and vanilla custards make the 2021 Chardonnay Ronco Basso a total pleasure on the nose. This is pure hedonistic pleasure on the palate, with soothingly silky textures and ultra-ripe orchard fruits offset by a burst of candied lime. For all of its intensity, the 2021 cleans up beautifully though the finish, leaving hints of hazelnut and dried apricot that resonate. While a bit ripe in style, the 2021 overdelivers." - Eric Guido, Vinous

Ronco del Gnemiz Friulano ‘San Zuan’ 2021

R735.00 inc. VAT
"The 2021 Friulano San Zuan opens with a honeyed sweetness as white flowers, crisp green melon and confectionary spices fill the senses. This is round and supple on the palate, with vividly ripe orchard fruits nicely offset by bright acidity. It finishes with a lingering sweetness offset by spicy citrus tones. Beautifully ripe and concentrated, yet with stunning acidity, the 2021 San Zuan is a real head-turner." - Eric Guido, Vinous
