Keermont Riverside Chenin Blanc 2020

R570.00 inc. VAT
"Sourced from a single, old-vine block close to the river on the Keermont farm, this is a layered, effortlessly complete Chenin Blanc from Alex Starey that displays a lovely medley of nectarine, apple and honey flavours, subtle wood spices and a long, slightly salty finish." - 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

Danie Junior Chenin Blanc 2022

R124.99 inc. VAT
Ripe quince, pineapple and stone fruit with some interesting savory undertones. Lightly textured palate, with a hint of sweetness and balancing crunchy acid, results in a brisk finish.

Keermont Terrasse 2022

R280.00 inc. VAT
"The Terrasse 2022 has an inviting aroma with notes of spring flowers, ripe apricots and citrus, and a hint of fennel. The palate is soft and luscious, with lovely fresh acidity and an array of flavours: ripe apricot, peach and quince flavours complimented by richer more spicy savoury fruit. This follows into a lingering aftertaste with salty acidity." - Winemaker's notes

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

Alheit Gone South 2022

R445.00 inc. VAT
"The nose shows beautiful pear and fresh citrus, particularly grapefruit, perhaps kumquat. There are musky herbal notes present here too, difficult to define, something like rooibos. As always, the wine has a striking sense of purity. That classic Skurfberg saline vigour underpins the whole palate. This vintage is medium bodied yet rich in flavour, with good length and balance.

Keermont Terrasse Magnum 2021

R559.56 inc. VAT
"The 2021 Terrasse, estate-grown fruit aged in seasoned oak for 12 months, has a lovely honeysuckle-scented bouquet with hints of persimmon coming through with time. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, a light oiliness on the entry and quite peppery with a bright, spicy finish. Very fine." - Neal Martin, Vinous

Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Chardonnay 2022

R520.00 inc. VAT
Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Chardonnay 2022, "Blending three different components from both sides of the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, this is a beautifully judged Chardonnay from a South African master of the variety. Voluptuous and textured, yet focused and energetic at the same time, it has struck match top notes, 22% new oak, citrus and vanilla spice flavours and a pithy, salty finish." - Tim Atkin MW

J.L. Chave Sélection Hermitage Blanc Blanche 2019

R950.00 inc. VAT
"Another incredible white from this family is the 2019 Hermitage Blanc, a powerful, concentrated, and remarkably pure Hermitage that has laser-like focus as well as textbook Marsanne notes of quince, green almond, powdered rock, licorice, and spice. It’s still tight, focused, and inward at present, yet it reminds me of the 2018 with its purity and rare mix of power and elegance. It’s worth trying a bottle any time over the coming 3-5 years, but after that, I’d recommend waiting until after 2031. 98+" - Jeb Dunnuck

J.L. Chave Sélection Crozes-Hermitage Blanc “Sybèle” 2021

R395.00 inc. VAT
Around 70% Marsanne and 30% Roussanne from vineyards planted between mid-1990s and early 2010s from Larnage.

J.L. Chave Sélection Saint-Joseph Blanc “Circa” 2021

R494.99 inc. VAT
" Composed of 100% Roussanne, the 2021 Saint Joseph Circa Blanc is terrific. Offering a classic perfume of ripe pears, honeycomb, quince, and sappy flowers, it picks up a beautiful sense of minerality with time in the glass. Medium-bodied, nicely concentrated, rich, and layered, it's one heck of an impressive Northern Rhône white that's going to shine for at least 3-5 years, and I wouldn't be surprised to see it have an interesting evolution over the coming decade." - Jeb Dunnuck

François Cotat Sancerre Grande Côte 2020

R1,050.00 inc. VAT
"The 2020 Sancerre La Grande Côte is a fine wine with a piercing nose of floral and flint. While it may be dry, it offers a sensation of sweet fruit and high alcohol (14.5%), which Cotat compares to the ripe 2009 and 1990 vintages. Being late-picked and on a south slope, these grapes get ripe, and in this vintage, I can't help but think that the balance has been slightly knocked by this ripeness. That said, it offers delectable texture and sinew and remains an impressive wine. Tasting the 2009 Cul de Beaujeu soon after, high alcohol (15%) remains evident with bottle age." - Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous

David & Nadia Chenin Blanc 2022 Magnum

R860.00 inc. VAT
“This is the biggest production Chenin Blanc from David and Nadia Sadie, sourced from eight different old-vine parcels and now amounting to 16,000 bottles. Granite-based with other components on shale, clay and limestone, it’s a nuanced, effortlessly balanced white with notes of aniseed, oatmeal, wet stone and pithy citrus and yellow apple fruit.” – Tim Atkin MW

David & Nadia Aristargos 2022

R410.00 inc. VAT
"At 13,000 bottles, Aristargos is one of the larger production whites in David and Nadia Sadie's portfolio. Based on Chenin Blanc, with the remaining 53% made up of Semillon, Verdelho, Clairette Blanche, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Colombard and Viognier, it's a layered, mealy, waxy cuvée with subtle skin contact bitterness, racy acidity and pear, quince and lemongrass flavours." - Tim Atkin MW

Alheit Vineyards Hereafter Here 2022

R310.99 inc. VAT
"Hereafter Here is Chris Alheit's biggest-production Chenin Blanc, made from five different sources in Stellenbosch and the Swartland. The vines are mostly younger, producing a wine that's comparatively immediate, with a nice interplay between peach an green apple fruit and impressive brightness for a 2022 release." - Tim Atkin MW

Alheit Vineyards Cartology 2022

R445.00 inc. VAT
"It was a vintage that gave you the chance to show what you were made of," says Chris Alheit of the "middling 2022 growing season". It certainly did. This is a brilliant cuvée of Chenin Blanc with 8% Semillon, sourced from ten different vineyards. Showing lots of energy from early picked grapes on granite soils, it has fennel, fynbos and lanolin aromas, citrus, green herb and wet stone flavours, and good ageing potential, despite the heat of the vintage." - Tim Atkin MW

Oremus Tokaji Mandolás Dry Furmint 2020

R450.00 inc. VAT
"Mandolás Furmint 2020 is a young, fruity wine with a fresh nose and aroma, but with body and a lively tone of acidity. As 2020 was a cold vintage, freshness and floral aromas characterise this Mandolás. " - Winemaker's notes

Domaine Moreux-Corty Pouilly-Fumé Artisan La Loge aux Moines 2019

R635.00 inc. VAT
This is the flagship wine from a domaine whose history stretches back to the 17th century and which is being revitalised by the current (14th) generation of owners, brothers Arnaud and Julien. These are serious wines, an incredible expression of Pouilly-Fumé. The 4.5ha south-facing parcel of vines that make La Loge aux Moines (The Monks' Lodge) is planted on Kimmeridgian marl with a very high proportion of active limestone. Wines from this plot are characterised by great precision, minerality and structure. It's an austere style, with faintly smoky, herby aromas that hint at great concentration beneath. A delicious expression of Pouilly-Fumé, made with great finesse.- Amy Wislocki, Decanter

Newton Johnson Southend Chardonnay 2022

R263.01 inc. VAT
"Made with full malolactic - "it's not really a choice, it just kicks in," says Gordon Newton Johnson - this comes from a cooler, south-facing slope that tends to produce a steely style. Aged in 11% new wood, it's sappy, focused and refreshing, with lime and lemongrass flavours and a hint of struck match." - Tim Atkin MW

Dr. Loosen Erdener Treppchen Riesling Auslese 2019

R695.00 inc. VAT
"The 2019 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Auslese is clear yet still yeasty on the concentrated, spicy and slatey nose. Sweet, piquant and classy on the palate, this is a tight and concentrated Auslese with bitter grapefruit on the finish. It is still shy after the recent bottling yet indicates remarkable concentration, grip and tension. - Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate
