2012 Sequillo (Eben Sadie) Red Blend Swartland Top Pick!
2012 Sequillo (Eben Sadie) Red Blend Swartland

The Sequillo Red is made from Syrah, Cinsault and Tinta Barocca. It is selected from multiple parcels of Eben's vines throughout the Swartland region. The fruit is carefully hand-picked and naturally fermented in 1300-gallon cement tanks. The wine spends about 6 weeks on the skins for slow, gentle extraction and is then pressed off with a small basket press. This wine hearkens back to the Châteauneuf-du-Pape of old with a perfect combination of purple flowers, exotic dark red fruits, stoney earth tones, leather, warm spices and smoked meat. The 2012 vint... Read More »

2013 Sequillo (Eben Sadie) White Blend Swartland

An rich Swartland blend of Chenin Blanc, Clairette, Verdelho, Viognier and Palomino. Then fruit for this wine comes from multiple parcels of Eben's vineyards throughout the region. Many vines are very old, own-rooted, all are dry-farmed bushvines toiling against the elements in this rugged yet inspiring place. 2013 was a cooler vintage so freshness and brightness of fruit was preserved throughout. The other important aspect of this wine is that Eben co-fermented all of the different components together, creating a more integrated and harmonious blend. Th... Read More »

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.

2014 Big Flower (Botanica) Petit Verdot Rosé Top Pick!
2014 Big Flower (Botanica) Petit Verdot Rosé

A stunning little rosé. Quite unusually this is made from Petit Verdot.

This can be quaffed without much thought or it can be pondered over for hours, so fresh and easy-drinking, but also very layered and complex. A seriously good addition to our 2015 rosé lineup.
