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. (JM)" (09/2018) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "This is a quiet vintage of the Carêmes’ South African chenin blanc, the fruit off 40-year-old dry-farmed vines grown on shale and granite. 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 Top Pick!
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.

2013 Rustenberg "John X Merriman" Bordeaux Blend Stellenbosch

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?

2017 Crystallum "Peter Max" Pinot Noir Hemel-en-Aarde Walker Bay

90 points Vinous: "The 2017 Peter Max Pinot Noir includes 40% whole cluster fruit and spent four weeks on the skins, with around 15% new oak. It has a fragrant, very well defined bouquet of raspberry, red cherry and a touch of black currant leaf, all very precise and focused. The palate is well balanced with gently grippy tannin and a little strict at the moment; perhaps it just needs a little more flesh on the finish. But it has an infectious sense of energy and impressive length. (NM)" (08/2018) K&L Notes: Crystallum is an awesome project from “youn ...Read More »

2015 Thorne & Daughters "Rocking Horse" Western Cape White Blend

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Rocking Horse Cape White, matured in used oak for nine months with a small amount of skin contact, offers attractive almond and nutmeg notes, flecked with white chocolate to make this a very seductive set of aromatics. The palate is fresh on the entry with hazelnut, Chinese five-spice and smoky flavors, well balanced with satisfying depth and length on the finish. This is an excellent wine from winemaker John Seccombe, who has been producing some lovely, quite cerebral wines since his debut in 2013, cut ...Read More »

2016 Sadie Family "Palladius" Swartland White Regional Blend

93 points Vinous: "The 2016 Palladius comes from 17 different vineyards and was fermented in clay amphora and concrete egg and aged for first year, then racked and aged for additional year in old foudres prior to bottling. It has a well defined bouquet, quite neutral in style but blossoming with aeration to reveal hints of lanolin and melted candle wax. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, touches of curry leaf and spice and orange peel. A long tail on the finish of white pepper and sage completes this wonderful Palladius.

2015 David & Nadia Grenache Paardeberg Swartland

92 points Vinous: "(a small quantity of Syrah skins was used during fermentation for color stability; vinified with about 40% whole clusters): Juicy, firm and delineated but with compelling insinuating sweetness to the candied red fruit, spice and rose petal flavors. As brisk and fresh as the 2014 bottling: wonderfully penetrating, floral Grenache with a rising finish featuring a firm dusting of fine-grained tannins. Sexy, vibrant wine--and just 13.5% alcohol. (ST)" (05/2017) Jancis Robinson: "Pale - very pale - ruby. Very sweet, almost strawberry jam, ...Read More »

2014 Meerlust "Rubicon" Red Bordeaux Blend Stellenbosch South Africa

90 points Wine Spectator: "Mature, with polished edges to the mix of coffee, tobacco, steeped black currant and warm fig paste flavors. Light loam and savory hints add range on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2020. (JM)" (02/2018) Jancis Robinson: "Good restraint here, with classic cassis fruit and a dark liquorice and aniseed character on the palate. High but fine tannin. Enough fruit at its core to age well. Finishes with a faint rubber character. 17/20 points. (RH)" (09/2017) K&L Notes: Wi ...Read More »
