2016 Waterkloof Circumstance "Cape Coral" Mourvèdre Rosé Stellenbosch (Biodynamic) (Previously $17) Top Pick!
2016 Waterkloof Circumstance "Cape Coral" Mourvèdre Rosé Stellenbosch (Biodynamic) (Previously $17)

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 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 Boekenhoutskloof "The Wolftrap" Red Blend Western Cape

Wine & Spirits: "Spicy and bold, this wine’s fat red-grape flavor balances its ashy, earthy tannins. For braised meats." (2/2018) Wine Spectator: "A mix of cherry, mulled strawberry, vanilla and savory notes on a modest frame, showing light structure. Syrah, Mourvédre and Viognier. (JM)" (12/2017) K&L Notes: The Wolftrap is a robust, lively blend of Syrah, Mourvédre, and Viognier. From Neal Martin at erobertparker.com: "Robert Parker recently tasted Mark Kent's (a.k.a.

2016 Storm Point (Craven) Chenin Blanc Western Cape South Africa (Previously $15)

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. Chenin Blanc has proven to be very ... Read More »

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 »

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."

Sexy scents of dark raspberry, boysenberry, mocha, spices and dried flowers. Concentrated and suave, with dark raspberry, pepper and spice flavors offering lovely inner-mouth energy and perfume.

Pungent, pure aromas of cassis, blackberry, licorice, bitter chocolate and herbs. Dense, saline, concentrated and juicy but silky and fine-grained too.

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.

2014 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."

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 »

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.

2015 Crystallum "The Agnes" Chardonnay Hemel-en-Aarde / Overberg

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "92+ (13.5% alcohol): Pale, bright straw-yellow. 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."

2015 Raised By Wolves "Driehoek" Chenin Blanc Stellenbosch

The Montpellier, or 'Lost' clone holds special reverence amongst South African producers of Chenin Blanc. Up until the 1990's it was widely planted until newer, heavier yielding clones became available and it was mostly replaced. Although commercially extinct, it is perhaps one of the finest quality selections of Chenin Blanc producing naturally lower yields and wines of richness and depth of flavour, often with a pithy texture and a refreshing citrus twist.

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 »

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.

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.

2016 Saurwein "Nom" Pinot Noir Kaaimansgat
