2015 Hermanuspietersfontein (HPF) "No.3 - Bergblokke" Sauvignon Blanc Western Cape Top Pick!
2015 Hermanuspietersfontein (HPF) "No.3 - Bergblokke" Sauvignon Blanc Western Cape

Hermanuspietersfontein's "No.3 - Bergblokke" or "Mountain Block" tends to produce pure, concentrated, fruit-driven wines presenting fine citrus, gooseberry, kiwi, litchi and melon aromas and flavors. A dash of neutral barrel fermented Semillon is added to balance the Sauv Blanc's overt nature and enhance palate texture. This is a super refreshing wine with lots of juicy fruit, zesty acidity and intense wet stone minerality. 2015 is another outstanding vintage. HPF was the creation of master of Sauvignon Blanc winemaker Bartho Eksteen. Bartho is known in... Read More »

2015 Bryan MacRobert "Abbotsdale" Shiraz Swartland Top Pick!
2015 Bryan MacRobert "Abbotsdale" Shiraz Swartland

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Abbotsdale Shiraz is blended with 5% each of Cinsault and Mourvedre. It has a slightly reserved bouquet with mulberry, black fruit and earthy aromas with just a touch of wild mint. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannin, crisp acidity and quite an elegant finish with clove and black pepper lingering on the aftertaste. It leaves you wanting another sip... job done. (NM)" (4/2017) K&L Notes: 90% Shiraz, 5% Mourvedre, 5% Cinsault. Grown on dry-farmed bush vines with organic farming and minimal-intervention winemaking. A great representation of the terroir...

2016 Flotsam & Jetsam Cinsault (Alheit Vineyards) Darling

Made by Chris and Susan Alheit in an effort to "hopefully to show that workhorse grapes can make lekker wine". (Lekker in case you're wondering means "awesome" or "rad" or something along those lines in SA.) This is a stunning little fresh wine made for the everyday dinner table. Weighing is at 12% alcohol, with juicy berry fruit, soft tannins, a touch of spice, this is one of the most quaffable, versatile wines you'll find amongst our selections. (Ryan Woodhouse - K&L S.Africa Wine Buyer)

Graham Beck Brut Rosé Western Cape

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Brut Rosé, disgorged March 2015, has a lifted apricot blossom and citrus peel-scented bouquet, perhaps a little more phenolic than I was expecting. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly waxy texture, nicely balanced with white peach and strawberry notes, a touch of dried orange peel, fanning out gently towards an appealing, easy-drinking finish that lingers in the mouth. (NM)" (9/2015) Vinous: "Very pale orange-copper color. Bright, fresh raspberry and cherry aromas, along with a light leesy nuance. Tastes sweeter than the brut, with strong red berry f ...Read More »

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

A 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, expressive and precisely balanced. I am excited to work with Waterkloof E...

2015 Alheit Vineyards "Cartology" Chenin Blanc Western Cape

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Chris Alheit told me that at present, the 2015 Cartology Bush Vines comes from nine vineyards. It offers complex and quite arresting aromas of walnut, wax resin, linseed and smoke that blossom in the glass, always as much an intellectual proposition as a sensory one. The palate is well balanced with superb balanced, very saline in the mouth, evoking images of the sea, fanning out with citrus fruit mixed with hazelnut and Chinese five spice. This is yet another killer wine in the Cartology series since 2011. (NM)" (4/2017) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Gorgeous, with rich lemon curd, sh ...Read More »

2015 Rustenberg Chardonnay Stellenbosch South Africa Back In Stock!
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.

2015 Bryan MacRobert "Steen" Hillside Vineyard Chenin Blanc Swartland

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Steen Chenin Blanc has an attractive bouquet with brioche and sesame notes infusing the light tropical tones. The palate is well balanced with an almost creamy-textured opening, hints of brioche and sweetcorn broth, lovely definition towards the finish that lingers in the mouth. (NM)" (4/2017) K&L Notes: Winemaker Bryan MacRobert graduated from the hallowed cellar of Sadie Family wines learning his craft from Swartland legend Eben Sadie. Fruit for this bottling is from old vines, on a steep, east facing slope in a very cool vineyard. This gives the wine a li... Read More »

2015 A.A. Badenhorst "Curator" Red Rhone Blend Swartland

Dusty red fruits, plum, red currant, smoked meat, some briary, brambly edges. Easy to love, a nice balance and completeness on the palate. A very authentic vinous quality, nothing artificial or manufactured about this budget bottle. Great for when you fire up the “Braai” aka the grill! Top value.

2013 Rustenberg Cabernet Sauvignon Stellenbosch

Stellenbosch is the starting point for most newcomers to the wines of South Africa. It is familiar yet exotic. Here are large, perfectly tended estates, as you would find in regions throughout the fine wine growing world, but they are framed by the dramatic and ancient Drackenstein mountains, and sometimes views of the False Bay. Winemaking in the region dates back to the late seventeenth century, which Rustenberg and its vineyard holdings also date back to. Their cellars have been in continuous production since 1892—how many Old World producers, let alo... Read More »

2015 The Valley (La Brune) Pinot Noir Elgin

Importer Notes: "With many visits to Burgundy for harvest, Winemaker Nico Grobler, fell in love with the Pinot Noir grape and set out to craft a South African bottling that showed the same finesse, elegance, restraint, and purity one would find in Burgundy. In order to achieve this balance, he uses Pinot Noir clones 113 and 777. Clone 113 provides structure while clone 777 lends the wine fruit and perfume. Barrel fermented and then barrel aged for 12 months in 500L French Oak barrels, the wine sees another year of age in bottle before release."

2015 The Foundry Grenache Noir Stellenbosch

Winemaker's Notes: "This Grenache is grown on a small plot in the Fijndraai hills, a few kilometers from the maritime influence of False Bay. The wine is light, fresh, and approachable. A youthful, deep ruby in color, with good intensity on account of the low production per vine. On the nose there is a distinctive floral fleshy fruit quality intensified by black pepper, spice and a sanguine note. The palate is medium bodied with intense crushed dark fruit, peppery spiciness and an intricate fairy-dust like tannic structure."

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. Very ripe but has the stuffing to maintain its balance and really needs another year or t ...Read More »

2016 Remhoogte "Honeybunch" Chenin Blanc Simonsberg Stellenbosch

Winemaker's Notes: "At 33 years old, this is the oldest vineyard planted on the Remhoogte estate. The wine has a golden colour and a complex aromas of fresh tropical fruit and honeysuckle. There are undertones of subtle butterscotch and spicy acacia karoo. The grapes are harvested in two seperate picks. The second "late pick" deliberately selects some botrytis affected bunches which adds a wonderful rich, exotic character to the wine."
