2016 Boekenhoutskloof "The Wolftrap" Red Blend Western Cape (Previously $9)

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.

2015 Savage "White" Western Cape (Elsewhere $42)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Proprietary White is now a blend of Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Clariette Blanc. It has a very pure bouquet with lemon curd, dried apricot, broom and light fennel aromas that are very delineated. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry, beautifully balanced with a fine line of acidity, hints of orange rind and white peach, nectarine towards the finish that contains plenty of energy and drive. This is superb, as usual. (NM)" (4/2017) 93 points Vinous: "Bright, pale yellow with a green tinge. Reticent but complex nose suggests green topical fruits ...Read More »

Graham Beck Sparkling Wine South Africa

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Brut , which carries six grams per liter of residual sugar and was disgorged December 2016, is an equal blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. It has a fresh lime and sea spray bouquet, well defined with a light honeysuckle aroma. The palate is well balanced with citrus peel on the entry. It might not be as persistent as other South African MCCs, but it is bounding with freshness and delivers a tangy orange-pith finish. How how many champagnes can you get change from with a twenty dollar bill? (NM)" (4/2017) Vinous: "Strong, fresh mousse. Fresh, inviting white ...Read More »

It's medium-bodied, with a white grapefruit element that extends from start to finish, providing a backbone for the riper notes. Clean and refreshing, it should be consumed over the next year or two. *Best Buy* (LB)" (7/2018)

2017 De Wetshof "Limestone Hill - Unoaked" Chardonnay Robertson

90 points Decanter: "Family-owned De Wetshof have developed a reputation for their Chardonnays over the years. It's a variety that loves limestone soils, and this wine is made from vines grown in soils with the highest limestone content of the entire estate, along with heavy clays that help to retain moisture. The result is a richly tropical wine, with a fresh, saline acidity and a hint of wild herbs. Delicious!

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.

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.

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.

A perennial staff and customer favorite at K&L, this is one of our best-selling and most-raved-about rosés every year.

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."

2017 Raats "Old Vine" Chenin Blanc Stellenbosch

Neal Martin writes: "The rise of Raats Family Wines in recent years has been a pleasure to witness. Whilst observing the "revolution" in Swartland has given much pleasure, the same ambition and foresight had to be shown in that most important of wine regions, Stellenbosch. Of course, altering the structure of this traditional region takes much longer. Dismantling long-held but out-of-date views cannot be done overnight, but winemakers like Bruwer Raats and Gavin Slabbert are spearheading the future of the region."

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

2015 Raised By Wolves "Driehoek" Chenin Blanc Stellenbosch (Previously $30)

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.

2017 Hamilton Russell Pinot Noir Hemel-en-Aarde Valley

93 points James Suckling: "Fresh red cherries, blueberries, rose petals, stems, nutmeg, licorice and spice box. Medium to full body, refined tannins, savory undertones and a caressing finish. Lovely tension to this. So refined and elegant. Drink now." (6/2018)

2016 Gabrielskloof Magdalena White Blend Bot River

Jancis Robinson: "50% Semillon, 50% Sauvignon Blanc, from 38-year-old vines. Light nose and excellent balance and presence on the palate. Opens out to a lanolin-assertive, beautifully balanced wine. It may develop more nose in bottle. No hurry whatsoever to drink this. Serious stuff! 17/20 points (JR)" (6/2017)
