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...

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 »

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 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 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."

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 »

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 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.

2016 Hamilton Russell Chardonnay Hemel-en-Aarde Valley

93 points James Suckling: "This is a Chardonnay that bridges the gap between Old and New World. Wonderfully (but not overly) ripe stone fruit meets with green apples, yellow plums and satsumas. On the palate it's delicious and so refined. Full-bodied but fresh and succulent. Drink now." (8/2017) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Chardonnay underwent less malolactic than other vintages to preserve the acidity, around 40%, and the wine matured in 38% new oak for nine to ten months. Yields were very low at around 20 hectoliters per hectare. It is much less rich than the 2015, yet it displays finer delineation ...Read More »

2013 Tokara "Reserve Collection" Chardonnay Stellenbosch (Previously $20)

91 points Vinous: "Bright yellow. Subtle aromas of stone fruits and toasty oak. 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)

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."

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.

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.

2013 Mvemve Raats "MR de Compostella" Bordeaux Blend Stellenbosch (Elsewhere $70)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 41% Cabernet Franc, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Malbec, 14% Merlot and 9% Petit Verdot, the 2013 De Compostella spent 24 months in barrel, 15%-20% new oak in the first year and then transferred into used barrel. It has a voluminous and very pure bouquet, ebullient red cherry and wild strawberry fruit, with just a touch of cassis. The palate is medium-bodied with sensual tannin, as usual, and with perfectly judged acidity; this is a more "sedate" and "relaxed" De Compostella that is not too worried about being "wine of the year." Rather, it is ...Read More »

Ranging from 15-25 years in age, the vines are now hitting their straps and providing great flavors and full maturity. Mainly grown on granitic soils as well as some shale soils.

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.

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."
