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

Anwilka Red Blend 2019

R480.00 inc. VAT
"The 2019 Anwilka is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon with 30% Syrah. The nose opens with subtle Syrah notes of red peppercorn and smoked meats before moving to dusty red and black fruit aromas. Full-bodied, layered and fresh, the palate reveals the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon, with soft herbal essences, bitter black tea and delicate olive notes. Graphite and pencil shavings follow across the mid-palate. The wine continues to unwind over the long lingering, mineral-laced, food-friendly finish. This rested for 20 months in all French oak, 50% of which was new, before being bottled." - Anthony Mueller, The Wine Advocate

Anwilka Red Blend 2018

R480.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Anwilka offers a delightful refinement and finesse, wafting with layers of dusty red fruit, oak and elegant red flowers. Medium to full-bodied, the palate provides balanced tannins with lively acidity that lingers across the mid-palate through the ever-evolving finish without showing any greenness. Give it a try." - Anthony Mueller, The Wine Advocate

Anwilka Red Blend 2016

R480.00 inc. VAT
"Bursting from the glass, the 2016 Anwilka has elegant oak tones that play with a juicy fruit structure. Dark cherry, blackberry and plums all dance with mocha tones and oak spices that integrate seamlessly together. The wine is full-bodied on the palate, with a ripe attack of bold, concentrated fruit and a balanced structure with grippy tannins that hang on the gumline, leaving flavors of bitter dark chocolate and coffee bean. Ending with a long, drawn-out finish, it continues to evolve on the palate long after the wine has left the mouth. This is a serious wine for collectors." - Anthony Mueller, The Wine Advocate

Anwilka Red Blend 2014

R625.00 inc. VAT
"Bright and deep ruby in appearance. An upfront nose displays aromas of red fruit and cherries with toasted spices. The palate is fresh and vibrant on entry with a balanced acidity, supple tannins and elegant texture." - Winemaker's notes

Anwilka Red Blend 2013

R685.00 inc. VAT
"The 2013 Anwilka is a blend of 62% Syrah, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Petit Verdot. It has an attractive raspberry coulis and crushed strawberry bouquet with well-integrated oak. The palate is smooth on the entry with supple red berry fruit laced with bay leaf and clove, leading to a very composed finish that seems more elegant and refined than previous vintages. Bon vin!" - Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate

Anwilka Red Blend 2012

R710.00 inc. VAT
"The 2012 Anwilka is a blend of 87% Shiraz and 13% Cabernet Sauvignon matured in 50% new oak. It has a very pure and well defined bouquet with ebullient blackberry and cedar scents, quite strict at the moment but nicely focused and integrated with the wood. The palate is well balanced with supple tannin, very well judged acidity, and there is a pleasant chewiness in the mouth with rosemary and sage towards the finish. This is a well crafted Anwilka that will benefit from 2-3 years in bottle." - Anthony Mueller, The Wine Advocate

Anwilka Red Blend 2006

R740.00 inc. VAT
"Distinctive freshness and elegance, with ample, mouthfilling blackcurrant fruit and cinnamon flavours. Ripe tannins, in perfect balance with fruit, acid and alcohol, impart sufficient structure and supple texture. Good length, with a positively clean and flavourful finish." - 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.

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 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 Rosso “Dott. Palazzolo” 2020

R1,395.00 inc. VAT
"Savory in the glass, the 2020 Rosso del Gnemiz lifts up with dusty florals and earth tones before giving way to dried black cherries. This is pure elegance, lifted and refined, with crisp red and black fruits accelerated by brisk acidity. It finishes classically dry and with fine tannins that frame the wine perfectly, tapering off with amazing length and clarity, leaving peppery florals to linger." - Eric Guido, Vinous

J.L. Chave Sélection Côtes-du-Rhône “Mon Coeur” 2021

R295.00 inc. VAT
"A year-in, year-out smoking value as well as a great bottle of wine, the 2021 Côtes du Rhône Mon Coeur checks in as equal parts Grenache and Syrah brought up in neutral oak. Its vivid ruby hue is followed by a medium-bodied, elegant, lively red offering pretty red and black berry fruits, some spring flowers, peppery herbs, and gamey nuances, fine tannins, and nicely integrated acidity. Coming from a cooler year, it still brings plenty of richness and depth and is well worth seeking out." - Jeb Dunnuck

BLANKbottle “Retirement @ 65” 2022

R320.00 inc. VAT
"Retirement @ 65? Let's hope that's not in Pieter Walser's plans, so that he can go on making wines like this Darling assemblage of Cinsault with 44% Syrah. Fermented with around 50% whole bunches, this is "almost a field blend", with plum, bramble and red berry fruit, lots of zip and minerality and sinewy tannins." - Tim Atkin MW

BLANKbottle Empire 2021

R310.01 inc. VAT
"Called BLANKbottle Empire because all the grapes come from Stellenbosch, this is a medley of Cabernet Sauvignon with 29% Cabernet Franc and 14% Merlot. Mint and green tea aromas are a prelude to a palate of cassis, bramble and coffee bean and fine-boned tannins." - Tim Atkin MW

BLANKbottle B.I.G. 2020

R310.01 inc. VAT
"Seven sub-regions covering "the whole of South Africa" make up the blend of this ripe, fullbodied, pedal to the mettle cuvée of Cabernet Sauvignon with 5% Cabernet Franc. Rich but not lacking in acidity, it has mulberry, fig and tobacco flavours and a leafy undertone." - Tim Atkin MW

Samaritaan 2019 – SOLD OUT

The wine is a red blend of three Helderberg components. The Merlot is a block of old bush vines growing next to Francois’ homestead, just on the other side of the R44 to that of the Helderberg. The Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a block planted on a granitic outcrop which, according to Francois, is very unique for the Helderberg. Up Cordoba Road, through Taaibosch, to a vantage point is the the third component which is Cabernet Franc.

Château Musar Hochar Père et Fils Red 2018

R435.00 inc. VAT
Chateau Musar Hochar Père et Fils Red 2018, "An attractive clear ruby colour and aroma to match, with a subtle peppery spice and ripe red fruits. This continues through to the palate where sweet-ripened red fruit dominate the glass with a slight savoury note and soft, elegant finish." - Winemaker's notes

Domaine du Pégau Plan Pégau Vin de Table Non-Vintage

R264.99 inc. VAT
"Historically known and recognized, the Cuvée Plan Pegau has not failed. Vin de France, blend of 3 years aged in different containers in search of a blend of fruit, spices and complexity. This atypical cuvée and symbol of authentic know-how continues to conquer the palate of amateurs and professionals alike. Over the years, it has been able to express the richness of the terroirs bordering the Châteauneuf du Pape appellation. An intensity of fruit mixed with a hint of woody character, the Cuvée Plan Pegau can be enjoyed on all occasions." - Winemaker's notes

Domaine du Pégau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée 2019 Magnum

R1,980.00 inc. VAT
"The 2019 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Réservée looks set to rival the best examples of this bottling. Made up of approximately 80% Grenache, with 6% Syrah, 4% Mourvèdre and smaller amounts of other permitted varieties, it's impressively complex on the nose, with scents of black cherries, blackberries and black olives, plus mysterious wafts of violets and garrigue. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, it finishes long and velvety, a sure-fire bet for cellaring." - Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Domaine du Pégau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée 2020 Magnum

R2,495.01 inc. VAT
"I was even more impressed by the 2020 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Réservée than the 2019. Boasting crazily complex floral scents, garrigue, raspberries and cherries, this is one incredibly perfumed example of Pegau. Medium to full-bodied, silky, elegant and long, this is quintessential Pegau."- Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate

Lucien Aviet & Fils, Trousseau “Cuvée des Géologues” 2021

R695.00 inc. VAT
In 2021 they had very low yields and they didn't have enough wine to bottle the Ploussard separately, so they did a 2021 Trousseau-Ploussard Cuvée des Geologes without any vineyard designation, as it blends different crus, with 30% Ploussard. It's fine and elegant, with a vibrant palate and very fine tannins, with great acidity and no rusticity. It has great balance and some aging potential. 1,800 bottles produced. - Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate
