Savage White 2020

"Savage White returns to its roots as a traditional blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. The Chenin component is now focussed entirely on ‘Never Been Asked To Dance’. Sourced from trellised and bush vines, the grapes were whole bunch pressed before undergoing spontaneous fermentation. Sauvignon Blanc takes the lead, the aromatics show a pronounced spicy, herby, savoury tinged array of waxy green apples, white citrus, clementine, honeyed chamomile and root fennel with subtle hints of dried fynbos and lanolin. The palate is masterfully rich and broad, coating all corners of the palate with intense, crystalline notes of spicy yellow grapefruit, freshly squeezed tangerines and white peach cordial. The acids are intense but wonderfully tangy adding to a real sense of textural harmony and mineral complexity. A very complete wine that races out the blocks and will undoubtedly give plenty of drinking pleasure immediately on release." - Greg Sherwood MW

Rall White 2020

"Chenin Blanc 64%, Verdelho 32% and Viognier 4% all fermented naturally and matured separately in a combination of 225, 400 and 500 litre seasoned French oak and in this vintage around 20% of the Chenin also in concrete before blending and bottling after 10 months. With a bigger component of the blend from the old vine chenin grown on the granitic soils of the Paardeberg, this vintage retains the fine mineral backbone of the 2019 but with more texture, green and yellow citrus fruit, herbs and even some spice on the palate. Great natural acidity and a very low pH will also give this wine great aging potential of up to 10 years from vintage"- Winemaker's notes

Alheit Vineyards Hemelrand Vine Garden 2020

Alheit Vineyards Hemelrand Vine Garden 2020, "The wine gleams in the glass, a lovely straw colour. The nose is exotic, showing stone fruit and talcum, lemon rind and baking spice. The wine has an absolutely towering presence on the palate, robust flavours cut through by rapier acidity. A very invigorating drink." - Winemaker's notes

Château Musar White 2012

R675.00 inc. VAT
Château Musar White 2012, "Fine lemon-yellow, bright and still fresh-looking but also showing some reassuring maturity; dry honey on the nose, dry spices with a controlled richness of fruit on the palate that reminds me of Ygrec: complex and dry with sweetness in its DNA before natural acidity lifts the slightly exotic aftertaste on the finish; lanolin smooth in texture but not an easy wine to assess and not meant to be at this stage, gains familiarity after a while, but the mystery of young white Musar remains for another day." - Steven Spurrier
