2015 Rustenberg Chardonnay Stellenbosch South Africa

95 points Decanter: "An impressive Stellenbosch Chardonnay that wouldn't look out of place in Corton-Charlemagne with its complex leesy character. A mosaic of smoke and flint adds considerable interest to this charming wine. Plush aromas of buttery lemons, biscuits and honeydew melon translate well onto the palate. This wine combines power with restraint, richness with acidity, due in part to expertly handled oak. The intensity is palpable, and the flavour and aroma characteristics last a lifetime in the mouth." 91 points Vinous: "Palish bright yellow. Fresh peach, ginger, quinine and nutty vani ...Read More »

2015 Boekenhoutskloof "The Wolftrap" Red Blend Western Cape

Wine Spectator: "*** Best Value *** Ripe and focused, with dark plum and boysenberry fruit lined with licorice snap notes. Shows modest toast through the juicy finish. Syrah, Mourvèdre and Viognier. Drink now. (JM)" (9/2016) K&L Notes: The Wolftrap is a robust, lively blend of Syrah, Mourvedre, and Viognier. From Neal Martin at erobertparker.com: "Robert Parker recently tasted Mark Kent's (a.k.a. Mr Boekenhoetskloof) Wolftrap red and white and came to the same conclusion as I in recent years: these are just wonderful bang for bucks wines that are thoughtfully crafted at this price po...

2016 Waterkloof Circumstance "Cape Coral" Mourvèdre Rosé Stellenbosch (Biodynamic)

Too soon? Not for rosé from the Southern Hemisphere, and not for this perennial staff and customer favorite at K&L. This is one of our best-selling and most-raved-about rosés every year. Hand-picked from biodynamically farmed, old Mourvèdre vines in a cool coastal sub-region of Stellenbosch, it's a fresh, elegant wine that does a fantastic impression of Bandol (which is also predominantly made from Mourvèdre), but at a fraction of the cost! Waterkloof is a stunning property working with very natural, non-interventionist methods. The wines are pure, expre... Read More »

2016 Bayten Sauvignon Blanc Constantia

92 points Wine Spectator: "*Best Values* This is refined, with a steely spine that lets gooseberry, verbena and white peach flavors streak through. A hint of shortbread adds range and mouthfeel along the edges. The long finish has lovely cut. An amazing value. Drink now through 2019. (JM)" (2/2017) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale bright yellow. Complex nose melds orange blossom, stone and tropical fruits, wild herbs and pepper. Plush, fruity, slightly sweet and concentrated, lifted by a floral quality and framed by integrated acidity. Finishes tactile, saline and persistent."

2016 DeMorgenzon "DMZ" Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé Western Cape

Wine Spectator: "Ebullient white cherry and watermelon notes stay fresh enough on the open-knit finish in this lighthearted rosé. (JM)" (2/2017) K&L Notes: DMZ is DeMorgenzon's value-driven label and this rosé delivers plenty of bang for the buck. Notes of pomegranate, watermelon and strawberries make this the perfect accompaniment to a picnic of cheese and charcuterie.

2016 Radley & Finch Cinsault Rosé Western Cape

This crisp, refreshing rosé was made by winemaker Thinus Krüger and sourced from the Swartland and Paarl areas of South Africa. The 2016 vintage was warm and robust with an early harvest, producing a wine, according to the Krüger, with "aromas and flavors all focused on the red spectrum, embracing the natural sweeter notes of Cinsault combined with a fine firmness on the palate and juicy fruit at the centre of it all."

2015 A.A. Badenhorst "Secateurs" Chenin Blanc Swartland

Jancis Robinson: "Easy and mouthfilling. Tangy and definitely Chenin. A great introduction to New Wave South African wine!" (9/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Secateurs Chenin Blanc has a slightly waxy, toffee apple-scented bouquet that perhaps lacks the complexity of some of the other vintages that I have tasted in the past. The palate is nicely balanced, quite primal in the mouth at first but settling down later on with lime cordial and peachy notes that deliver plenty of flavor. (NM)" (11/2015)

Rich and broad but lively and precise too, showing good density and lift to the flavors of white peach, licorice and spices. Finishes with a slightly phenolic firmness and excellent length. These vines were planted in 2002 and 1998. (JR)" (6/2015)

2013 Diemersfontein Pinotage Wellington

Grapes were sourced from six distinctive vineyards in Wellington, creating a blend with complexity and verve. From the winemaker: "On the nose distinct coffee, rich dark chocolate and baked plums. The ripe subtle tannins create a wine to be drunk very young. This unique style of Pinotage is a perfect accompaniment to salmon, roast venison and even chocolate mousse."

2015 David & Nadia Grenache Paardeberg Swartland

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(a small quantity of Syrah skins was used during fermentation for color stability; vinified with about 40% whole clusters): Juicy, firm and delineated but with compelling insinuating sweetness to the candied red fruit, spice and rose petal flavors. As brisk and fresh as the 2014 bottling: wonderfully penetrating, floral Grenache with a rising finish featuring a firm dusting of fine-grained tannins. Sexy, vibrant wine--and just 13.5% alcohol." Jancis Robinson: "Pale - very pale - ruby. Very sweet, almost strawberry jam, on the nose, yet with sufficient refreshment. Great liv ...Read More »

2015 FRAM Grenache Gris Citrusdal Mountain (Previously $20)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Grenache Gris is only available in the U.S. It has a pinkish hue not unlike a mature Riesling in some. It has an intriguing bouquet with dried honey and an almost Tawny Port-like scent, hint of grilled almond and nutmeg coming through. The palate is ripe and slightly honeyed on the entry, but it feels dry in the mouth with a nutty, smoky finish. It is a love it or hate it Grenache Gris that apparently is popular with New York sommeliers, which actually does not surprise me. I quite like it...I think? (NM)" (4/2017)

2015 Joostenberg "Little j" Red Rhône Blend Paarl

Winery Notes: "The Little J Red is a bistro red blend consisting of 69% Syrah, 13% Grenache, 11% Cinsault, and 7% Mourvedre. This is an unprentious, generous wine made from a selection of vineyards in the Paarl area. The predominant soils are Malmesbury Shale. These soils have a surprisingly good moisture retention capability which allows for dry-land farming in this relatively warm and dry area. The vineyards are a combination of traditional bush-vines and trellised blocks."

2016 Storm Point (Craven) Chenin Blanc Western Cape South Africa

Winery Notes: "The grapes for this are 100% from the Swartland region. Grown on predominately granitic and shale soils that are common in the region. The vines are predominately between 20-30 years old and are a mix of bush vines and vertically trained vines. 2016 was a very early year and these grapes were harvested in the first week of February. A cool, controlled fermentation occurred in stainless steel and was left on it's lees for 5 months. Malolactic fermentation was blocked to maintain the freshness and acidity.

An iron edge underscores the elegant finish. Already approachable, but there's no rush. Drink now through 2020. 3,400 cases made."

2012 Rustenberg "John X Merriman" Bordeaux Blend Stellenbosch

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 John X Merriman is a blend of 49% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Merlot with Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec filling in the gaps. Spending 20 months in oak, 35% new, it has a dark plum and blackcurrant-scented bouquet that is more primal than other vintages I have encountered at this stage. The palate is medium-bodied with tobacco-tinged black fruit. This is supple, almost soft in the mouth that lends an easy drinking texture, but it clearly deserves a couple more years in bottle for those tannins on the finish to melt.

Knockout, endlessly complex perfume of orange blossom, cinnamon Red Hots, clove, ginger and mint. A silky, umami-like texture is utterly seamless and smooth. Hints of griotte cherry, orange zest, fynbos and tree bark are lifted by a strong spicy character.

2015 Crystallum "Peter Max" Pinot Noir Hemel-en-Aarde Walker Bay

91 points Decanter: "A delightfully accessible Pinot from four vineyard sites in the Western Cape. A slightly farmyardy, game and redcurrant nose leads into a palate of bright red cherry fruit with a pithy grapefruit and orange acidity. There is some oak creaminess on the finish." 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "91+ (14% alcohol): Bright medium red. Complex, subtle perfume of raspberry, strawberry, flowers and spices. Fat, ripe and subtly sweet, offering lovely depth of texture to the red fruit, spice and smoke flavors.

Eben told me that it is actually one of his most difficult sells but I am of the opinion that it is one of his best wines. Darker in colur than then other OVS labels, it has a captivating bouquet with raspberry, cranberry leaf, tobacco and damp wet clayey aromas.

It has a captivating bouquet with lanolin, pressed flower and subtle nectarine aromas.

2015 Radley & Finch Sauvignon Blanc Western Cape

Sourced from across the broad Western Cape region of South Africa, Radley & Finch offers this Sauvignon Blanc at an attractive entry-level price. The 2015 vintage offered a dry and early-ripening season with low yields and high quality fruit. Fruit from the Stellenbosch, Swartland and Paarl areas offer the ripe and juicy fruit character while grapes from the Olifants river area lend a streak of green invigoration. This Sauvignon Blanc is an excellent warm weather sipper, or a companion to fresh seafood and Mediterranean fare.

A bit lighter and more citrussy on the nose than the Clay Shales, offering aromas of white peach, lemon drop, lime, apple, nutmeg, minerals and crushed stone. A bit less silky than the Clay Shales but firmer and more sharply delineated, showing less sweetening influence of oak but lovely dusty brown spice influence. A slightly cooler style with a tighter, more minerally, more savory back end. This will need some patience to put on weight and expand."
