Specifications:

Type: Red Blend, Red Wine Maturation Potential: 15 yrs

Winemaker's comments:

The vivid purple hue of its colour invites one to explore the reaches of this fascinating wine. With aromatic wild, berry fruits and stylish spice notes the nose entices and delights. A mélange of lavender and licorice flavours, together with savoury, spicy and earthy notes make for an enthralling experience. Tannins are supple and rounded in keeping with the generous nature of the wine, while a fresh lift in the finish make for epic drinkability.

93 Points - Tim Atkin

Specifications:

12.86% alc vol Sugar g/l: 3.1
Type: White Wine Maturation Potential: 10 yrs
Origin: Stellenbosch Appellation: Stellenbosch

Winemaker's comments:

Often shunned and disrespected by winemakers and consumers alike, there is, in certain worthy quarters, an ascending realisation of the tremendous potential of this grape, Chenin Blanc - South Africa’s most noble grape. As devotees of true character and finesse often swim upstream against the populous tide, a fresh generation of Chenin producers is bringing to the surface some of the most interesting, bright, mineral and idiosyncratic wines of the Cape. The Renaissance of Chenin Blanc is all about subtlety and finesse. It is driven by its citrus fruit spectrum and has a wonderful refreshing saltiness.

Specifications:

12.30% alc vol Sugar g/l: 1.49
Type: Red Wine Maturation Potential: 5 to 8 yrs
Origin: Swartland Appellation: Swartland

Winemaker's comments:

With the 2014 we celebrate three successful vintages of this particular wine. By allowing the wine to express, uninhibitedly, its origin and the vintage we express our own love for the land and our faith in nature’s mysterious ways. The result is a wonderfully expressive, complex and elegant wine. The nose beams dark red fruits, and intriguing fynbos aromas. With pure and weightless intensity of fruit, as well as graphite like minerality, the palate delights before leading into a fresh and wholesome finish.

Cultivar:

100% Pinot noir

Rating:

92 Points - Christian Eedes

Specifications:

13.24% alc vol Sugar g/l: 1.50
Type: Red Wine Maturation Potential: 10 yrs
Origin: Elgin Appellation: Elgin

Winemaker's comments:

Subtle elegance and restraint are what sets this remarkable Pinot Noir apart from the rest. On the nose a mélange of attractive, dark berry fruit and earthy aromas make for an enchanting experience. A ripe, but understated expression of the fruit and a finely textured, effortlessly complex palate leads on to a flowing, savoury finish.

Cultivar:

100% Syrah

Rating:

90 Points - Robert Parker

Specifications:

13.50% alc vol Sugar g/l: 2.0
Type: Red Wine Maturation Potential: 10 yrs
Origin: Stellenbosch Appellation: Stellenbosch

Winemaker's comments:

Our objective is to achieve the best of both worlds (i.e. Northern & Southern Hemisphere characteristics): classic, spicy, peppery Shiraz, with layers of firm, ripe tannins, fresh natural acidity and persistent minerality –woven into dense, juicy fruit –but dry and refreshing and free of intrusive alcohol. Our challenge each vintage is to accomplish balance; not easy in our sunny climate. This Shiraz has power and restraint, backbone and fruit.

Cultivar:

100% Chardonnay

Rating:

4.5 Stars - Platter's

Specifications:

13.50% alc vol Sugar g/l: 7
Type: White Wine Maturation Potential: 8 years
Origin: Stellenbosch Appellation: Helderberg

Winemaker's comments:

With strong influence of Alex Dale’s upbringing in Burgundy, the making of this Chardonnay is also adapted to our particular conditions in this ocean-facing part of the Cape –our mineral geology and temperate maritime climate both lending much to the equation. Restraining acidity, citrus flavours and integrated oaking the introverted side of its character; ripeness and great persistence on the palate the more expansive side. Genuinely mineral, with a crisp lime-citrus edge and an elegant yet intense durability. A Chardonnay striving to be individual, focused on backbone not butter.
