2013 Boekenhoutskloof "The Wolftrap" Red Western Cape

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Wolftrap Red is a blend of 66% Syrah, 32% Mourvedre and 2% Viognier that is fermented in stainless steel with natural malolactic in French barrique where the wine ages for nine months. It has a pleasant blackberry and cassis-scented bouquet with light wet rock scents from the Mourvedre. The palate is medium-bodied with finer tannins that I have noticed on previous vintages.

2014 Waterkloof Circumstance "Cape Coral" Mourvedre Rosé Stellenbosch Top Pick!
2014 Waterkloof Circumstance "Cape Coral" Mourvedre Rosé Stellenbosch

Jancis Robinson: "* WINE OF THE WEEK* Feb 6th 2015: This wine, is to all intents and purposes, a great-value alternative to a dry, herby Bandol rosé. It’s made from the Bandol grape Mourvèdre and has just the same very pale orangey-pink colour, the full body and the dry, food-friendly finish. This is substantial, grown-up rosé that has nothing whatever to do with anything girly, even though the highly competent winemaker is female. (According to Nadia Barnard, only about 10% of winemakers in South Africa are women.) It’s not heavy but its low acid makes it taste quite sof ...Read More »

2013 A.A. Badenhorst "Secateurs" Chenin Blanc Swartland

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Secateurs Chenin Blanc, which comes from bush vines planted on granite slopes, has a pleasant, simple bouquet with dried lemon peel, a touch of marzipan and lime flower that is well-defined. The palate is well-balanced with a slight viscosity on the opening, but the feisty acidity then kicks in and lends the middle and finish satisfying tension and vibrancy. There is a pleasant bitter lemon twist on the aftertaste that drags you back for another sip. Great value - as always. Drink now. (NM)" (10/2013) Wine Spectator: "TOP VALUE!

The Kloof Street Chenin Blanc is sourced from three particularly fine vineyards in Swartland: one with 33 year old vines planted in the stony Shale and Schist soils of Riebeek Kasteel Mountain, and two vineyards of 40+ year old dry-farmed bush vines in the decomposed granite of Paardeberg Mountain.

2011 Rustenberg "John X Merriman" Proprietary Red Stellenbosch

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 John X Merriman was blended from 17 lots that were vinified separately and sees 20 months in new French oak. It is much more closed than the 2010 despite rigorous coaxing. The palate is well-balanced with fine tannin and a little more tension than the previous vintage, gradually building in the mouth toward an intense, white pepper, savory finish. I would give this five or six years in bottle because it may ultimately out-perform the 2010. Drink 2016-2024.
