Alheit Vineyards Fire by Night 2021

"As usual, the wine is bright and bristling, but still the most restrained of our bottlings. It usually takes a few years to show its full potential. Now, its youthful nose shows thatch, fynbos, and some citrus. The tightly layered pallet is slightly saline and quite pithy. There are hints of honey and pear to come. I think this wine will grow into something outstanding." -Winemaker's notes

Alheit Vineyards Hereafter Here 2021

"It sits in the glass like it owns it, full of youthful arrogance and over-confidence, full of sunshine and raw talent. Stone fruit, citrus and apple overlay some warm spice. The palate is an intense, full flavoured mess of sweet and salty fruit. Joyful to drink." - Winemaker's notes

Alheit Vineyards Monument Sémillon 2021

"The nose is quite expressive, showing citrus, nuts, and something herbal like spearmint. The palate is very textured and intense, showing layered flavours of naartjie and bitter almond maybe a touch of spearmint. This is a serious wine with unusual depth and carry. The best Monument/La Colline in a few years, I think." - Winemaker's notes

Alheit Vineyards Cartology 2021

"The nose is detailed and beautiful - ripe pear and sweet herbs, both citrus juice and rind. The palate is very pure and true, fine boned clarity, lovely proportions, no extra weight (unlike myself). This vintage shows good intensity and saline length. For me, the key word this vintage is purity. This wine is already drinking well in its youth, but will reward maturation." - Winemaker's notes

Domaine du Pélican Arbois Savagnin Macération Pélliculaire 2018

R595.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Savagnin Maceration Lellicualre is outrageously beautiful. A short time of maceration on the skins give its tannins and overall, structure. More like a red wine. Candied orange peel, hazelnut, sage, mint, licorice and dried flowers are some of the many notes that infuse the 2018 with layers of depth. The 2018 is a showstopper. That’s all there is to it" - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Domaine du Pélican Arbois Grand Curoulet Savagnin Ouillé 2018

R675.00 inc. VAT
The 2018 Arbois Grand Curoulet (Savagnin Oiullé) is another striking wine in this range. Tangerine oil, floral-infused honey, spice, hazelnut and apricot all run through the 2018. A wine of breadth and texture, the 2018 has so much to offer. Here, too the interplay of richer fruit and bright acids is simply compelling." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Domaine du Pélican Arbois Savagnin Ouillé 2018

R525.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Arbois Savagnin Oiullé is fabulous. It presents a beguiling mélange of dried apricot, white flowers, crushed flowers, marzipan, sage and chamomile. The savory profile works so well with the wine’s oily, textured feel, while a hint of reduction adds character. Even with all of its obvious exotic character, the 2018 retains more than enough freshness and minerality to give the wine a real feeling of vibrancy that is impossible to miss. Quite frankly, this is an eye-opening wine." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Domaine du Pélican Arbois Grand Curoulet Chardonnay 2018

R595.00 inc. VAT
"The bottled 2018 Arbois Chardonnay Grand Courolet comes from a plot that used to belong to Robert Aviet. The wine has a spicy nose with balsamic notes of aromatic herbs, medicinal and toasty, quite showy, like it might have had the effect of some yeasts, as it sometimes makes me feel like there are some notes reminiscent of a Vin Jaune. It's a bit peaty and smoky, round and ripe and with integrated acidity."- Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate

Domaine du Pélican Arbois Chardonnay En Barbi 2018

R675.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Arbois Chardonnay En Barbi races out of the glass with a stunning display of energy and mineral-drenched energy. Lemon oil, white flowers, almond, chamomile and crushed rocks are some of the many notes that infuse the 2018 with tons of character. Ample and yet sculpted, the 2018 is a wine of total class. In this lineup, the En Barbi is marked by a brilliant aromatic upper register. In a word: dazzling!" - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Domaine du Pélican Arbois Chardonnay 2018

R525.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Arbois Chardonnay is absolutely delicious. Bright and yet also generous, the Chardonnay captures the richness of this year quite well. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint and light tropical accents all run through this super-expressive, inviting Chardonnay. What a beautiful wine this is. I would open the 2018 in advance to allow a touch of reduction to blow off." Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Village 2020

R494.99 inc. VAT
Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Village 2020, "An expressive and airy nose reflects notes of mineral reduction, green fruit and plenty of citrus influence. There is slightly better density and a more attractive texture to the delicious flavors that flash good minerality on the dry, balanced and moderately firm finish. This is worth a look for its level." - Allen Meadow's, Burghound

BLANKbottle Makstokkie 2021

R280.00 inc. VAT
This is a Swartland 100% Verdelho.

Castello ColleMassari Melacce Montecucco Vermentino 2020

R225.00 inc. VAT
Castello ColleMassari Melacce Montecucco Vermentino 2020, "Sweet apples, pears, white flowers and hints of candied lime create an inviting bouquet as the 2020 Vermentino Melacce Montecucco blossoms in the glass. This is soft, round and soothing, with white stone fruits and minerals under an air of pretty inner florals. It tapers off fresh and honeyed with a flourish of salty minerals that adds wonderful contrasts. The 2020 may not have the energy of the 2019, but it’s a fine effort all the same." - Eric Guido, Vinous

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 1er Cru – “La Romanée” 2019

"A whiff of the exotic is present on the aromas of white peach, citrus confit and passion fruit. There is excellent punch and detail to the intensely stony medium-bodied flavors that conclude in a bone-dry and impressively long if somewhat lean finale. This is very, very tightly wound and as such I suspect that the finish will eventually flesh out and my rating assumes that this will occur over time." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru “La Maltroie” 2019

"The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet Maltroye 1er Cru has a fragrant, chalk dust scented bouquet that opens nicely with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a lightly spiced opening, touches of orange rind and marmalade lending a welcome tanginess. It might not be a long-term Chassagne, though it is thoroughly enjoyable" - Neal Martin, Vinous

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 1er Cru “Morgeot” 2019

"A pretty and much more floral nose features mostly ripe white orchard fruit and lemon rind scents. The rich, opulent and concentrated medium-bodied flavors possess fine length on the balanced finish that is shaped by citrus-tinged acidity. This too is lovely" - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2019

"Like the La Romanée, this too flirts with hints of exotic on the white and yellow fruit, passion fruit and jasmine tea aromas. The caressing and seductively textured bigger-bodied flavors possess good power on the lemony, very dry and impressively lengthy finish. I would add that this too is rather tightly wound, and I would advise holding it for at least 5 years first." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 1er Cru – “Les Caillerets” 2019

"Smoky aromas of green apple and bright citrus introduce rich, appealingly textured and intense medium weight flavors that exude a subtle bead of minerality on the bone-dry, moderately austere and solidly persistent finish. Here too some patience is advised." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Keermont Terrasse 2020

R210.00 inc. VAT
"Yellow gold colour, this wine has an explosive bouquet of lime, apple, hazelnut and peach with notes of vanilla spice, crushed oyster shell and butterscotch. The palate is textured and vibrant. A weighted entry comes quickly to life with ripe apricot, peach and pear flavours complimented by richer more spicy savoury fruit. This follows into a lingering sweetsour aftertaste with a light phenolic grip. A thin line of salty acidity gives the wine a succulent finish." - Winemaker's notes

Poderi Aldo Conterno Bussiador Langhe Chardonnay 2017

R995.00 inc. VAT
"This beautiful Chardonnay opens to spicy intensity with dried apricot and tropical fruit, all presented with heightened intensity and volume. The Poderi Aldo Conterno 2017 Langhe Chardonnay Bussiador is ripe and round with hints of yellow candy and ripe fruit. These opulent and softly voluptuous fruit flavors wrap smoothly over the palate. The finish is silky and fine with distant hints of crushed stone or mineral. Some 8,000 bottles were made." -Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Chardonnay 2020

R415.00 inc. VAT
"We want our Chardonnays to last," says Gordy Newton Johnson, and this one certainly will. Made with grapes from three sites - two north- and one south-facing, this is a very complete, balanced wine, with 30% new wood, citrus, oatmeal and cinnamon spice flavours, pithy acidity, a drizzle of cream and commendable palate length. "- Tim Atkin MW

Bodegas Muga Rioja White 2020

R235.00 inc. VAT
"Light yellow. Lively and sharply focused on the nose, displaying fresh citrus and orchard fruit scents and subtle vanilla and floral overtones. Shows sharp definition and spicy lift to the Meyer lemon, pear and honeysuckle flavors, which deepen through the midpalate. Closes long and juicy, with repeating florality and a dusty mineral flourish." - Josh Raynolds, Vinous
