2017 Tania & Vincent Carême "Terre Brulée" Chenin Blanc Swartland

91 points Wine Spectator: "Pretty yellow apple, mirabelle plum and white peach flavors are gilded with honeysuckle and verbena notes. Shows good length on the finish, with a pretty whiff of shortbread. Chenin Blanc. Drink now.

Fermented with ambient yeasts in a mix of stainless steel and wood tanks (a small portion ferments in barriques), it feels broad and earthy, with an ...Read More »

2017 A.A. Badenhorst "Curator" White Blend Swartland

"The CURATOR is a range of dynamic wines that are selected after the vintage each year. The grapes are grown in the Swartland region on the West Coast of Southern Africa. The vineyards are mostly bushvines growing in granite and slate soils, sourced from a number of traditional farmers. Chenin Blanc is the backbone and structure of this blend. The Chardonnay was naturally fermented and took a long time to complete fermentation, resulting in great texture and wacky aromas of dried peaches and apricots and ripe citrus. The Viognier, from one of Badenhorsts ...Read More »

2016 Joostenberg "Little j" Red Rhône Blend Paarl

The Little J Red is a bistro red blend consisting of 86% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre, 5% Cinsault, and 4% Grenache. This is an unprentious, generous wine made from a selection of vineyards in mainly the AgterPaarl area (part of the Paarl appelation). 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.

2018 Radley & Finch Chenin Blanc Western Cape

Sourced from across the broad Western Cape region of South Africa, Radley & Finch offers this Chenin Blanc at an attractive entry-level price. Grapes were sourced from both bush vines and trellised vines primarily in the Agter Paarl and Swartland regions. Winemaker Thinus Kruger primarily utilized indigenous yeasts in a particularly slow fermentation to develop complexity. The result is a citrusy and yellow fruited profile with hints of spice and grain. It is ready to drink right now, but will fill out and add complexity for a couple of years.

2014 Meerlust "Red" Stellenbosch South Africa

Winemaker Notes: "52% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Franc, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot. The wine has an intense, dark purple colour with a violet rim; bright and vivacious in the glass, youthful. The nose is expressive with powerful cassis, plum, exotic spice and hints of floral aromas. On the palate the wine is medium-bodied with intense flavours of crushed black fruit, cassis, vanilla and dark chocolate. The tannins are soft and silky, the acidity fresh, the flavour profile focused and linear. The wine has a persistent and long-lasting aftertaste."

2016 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 and at Rustenberg dates back to the late seventeenth century. Their cellars have been in continuous production since 1892—how many Old World producers, let alone New World producers, can say that?

Beneath that is a strong gravelly, flinty minerality that pervades the palate and expresses strongest on the finish. Medium weight, the tannins are firm yet fine, resulting in a rich, velvety texture.

2016 Diemersfontein Pinotage Wellington

With almost no other wine region in the world producing this unique varietal, South Africa has forged the way in the polarizing world of Pinotage. A genetic cross of Pinot Noir and Cinsault, it was created in South Africa in 1925 by Abraham Izak Perold, the first Professor of Viticulture at Stellenbosch University. Perold sought to combine the best qualities of both varietals, highlighting the heartier qualities of Cinsault and the elegant, ethereal ones of Pinot Noir. Production and quality of Pinotage bottlings have grown exponentially since it was fi ...Read More »

2017 Sadie Family Old Vine Series "Pofadder" Cinsault Swartland South Africa

95 points Vinous: "The 2017 Pofadder is pure Cinsault fermented in concrete tanks and conical foudres for 12 months. It has a clean, precise bouquet of tart red cherries, black currant leaf and a touch of chai tea. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, crisp acidity, gentle grip and a slightly brittle-textured but very penetrating, beautifully defined finish. I agree with Eben that this is one of the most elegant Pofadder I have tasted. (NM)" (08/2018) K&L Notes: Cinsault Whole-clusters are placed in wooden open-top fermenters, with 1 or 2 p ...Read More »

2015 Mullineux Syrah Swartland South Africa

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Syrah includes two additional vineyards on granite soils after the 2015, whilst the whole bunch component is back up to 60%. It has a clean and precise bouquet with floral-tinged red berry fruit (red cherry and wild strawberry), nicely focused and developing more intensity with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, fine structure, much more detail than the 2014 and I think that is down to the higher whole bunch proportion, the sense of energy flowing through on the long finish.

2015 A.A. Badenhorst "Secateurs" Red Rhône Blend Swartland

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Secateurs Red Blend, 71% Shiraz, 21% Cinsault and 8% Grenache, has a generous and well-defined bouquet of red plum, blackcurrant and dried rose petal aromas, revealing more black fruit as it opens in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, crisp acidity, more black than red fruit here with a slightly brittle but fresh as a daisy finish that belies the structure. It's one of the best Secateurs Red Blends that I have tasted. Drink Date: 2017-2023 (NM)" (04/2017) 90 points Wine Enthusia ...Read More »

2016 A.A. Badenhorst "Secateurs" Red Rhône Blend Swartland

From the importer: "The hefty Cinsault component will ensure excellent aging and enough suppleness for drinking young. Perfumed, peppery, spicy, smokey aromas, with ripe red fruit notes. The palate is supple, smooth on the entry but with enough grip and freshness to finish dry and refreshing."
