Excelsior Sauvignon Blanc South Africa
Great quaffing wine, but rather a superior quaffing wine and also a good food wine. From a great Estate in Robertson! Green appley characters but not sharp. Refreshing and fruity, finishes with that touch of minerality which elevates it from the masses. Lovely winter wine, summer wine, spring wine, autumn wine….Sauvignon BlancCrisp & Refreshing WhitesSouth Africa2023750 ml13-13.5%
Excelsior Merlot South Africa
Like its white cousin, this is a great party wine and goes well with most foods or just on its own. Rich, juicy Merlot from a favourite Estate of ours. Much recommended by Real Wine Co customers. 45% of the blend was aged in french and american oak barrels for six months. The wine is exceptionally concentrated and fruity.MerlotSoft & Smooth RedsSouth Africa2021750 ml14%+
Excelsior Viognier South Africa
Great quaffing wine, but rather a superior quaffing wine from a great Estate in Robertson. So no surprises that it keeps winning Gold at the Michelangelo Awards!
Fat, oily and aromatic; just what you’d expect from a classic Viognier, finishes with that touch of minerality which elevates it from the masses. Lovely summer wine….and any other time!ViognierRich WhitesSouth Africa2023750 ml14%+
De Meye Unwooded Chardonnay Stellenbosch South Africa
Return of an old friend! Unoaked, fresh, crisp minerally Chardonnay for those who don’t like Chardonnay!
There’s Chardonnay and there’s Chardonnay. Here’s a lovely example of Stellenbosch’s versatility showing how Chardonnay can be crisp, minerally, dry and nothing like the tired, old, over-oaked examples we see too much of in the supermarkets. Might even say “Chablis” if you didn’t know.ChardonnayCrisp & Refreshing WhitesUnoaked WhitesSouth Africa2022750 ml13-13.5%
Mooi Bly Chenin Blanc
The return of an old friend. Erik & Liesbet’s Chenin Blanc was the only one to hit the spot for me when we first visited South Africa. This new 2019 vintage is in. Hues of fresh, green edges make the colour very inviting. The nose is almost spicy and minerally at the same time. The palate is complex; dry and minerally but still quite rich. A very satisfying white wine.Other Single Varietal WhiteUnoaked WhitesSouth Africa2019750 ml13-13.5%
De Meye Old Vine Chenin Blanc Stellenbosch South Africa
New from Philip at De Meye, a rich style of South Africa’s trademark white varietal planted in 1978. Barrel-fermented but rich enough to cope heroically with the oak. Lovey serious wine.Other Single Varietal WhiteDry & Soft WhitesOakey WhitesSouth Africa2021750 ml13-13.5%

Excelsior Gondolier Merlot
This Merlot pays homage to Gondolier, one of the most renowned thoroughbred racehorses bred at Excelsior. Six months after receiving extensive physiotherapy on an injury to his hind leg that had left him completely lame, Gondolier won the 1985 Durban July, South Africa’s most prestigious horse race. Today Gondolier is regarded as one of the legends of South African horse racing.

Excelsior Evanthius Cabernet Sauvignon
This Cabernet Sauvignon pays homage to Evanthuis, a Hackney horse that was imported by Excelsior in 1913. This Hackney sire was a champion in Britain and America, winning first prize four times at the London Hackney show and in New York, in the days when the Hackney was the king of the world. He went on to win many titles in South Africa, including that of Rosebank’s Champion Stallion.
This Cabernet comes from the oldest vines on the farm. They were planted in 1988 in the best calcareous soils.
