  • De Meye Unwooded Chardonnay Stellenbosch South Africa

    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.

  • Myburgh & Milner “Privateer” Cabernet Franc/Merlot De Meye Stellenbosch

    Marcus Milner and Philip Myburgh decided to jointly create a blend which encapsulates a bit of fun, fruit, sun and this Cabernet Franc/ Merlot blend does just that. It’s a serious Stellenbosch creation with good grip and depth, but elegant – not too heavy. Goes well with both full-flavoured food as well as lighter dishes.

  • Excelsior Sauvignon Blanc South Africa

    One of our 12 Wines of Christmas as it makes a perfect party wine. 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….

  • Excelsior “Paddock” Shiraz South Africa

    This is widely regarded as the El Nino year in South Africa. The summer was hotter and riper than normal which required some adaptation in the vineyards to ensure a quality grape harvest. Grapes were harvested earlier than normal to ensure that there was freshness in the wines. The positive aspect of the drought was a very healthy crop with good concentration. The red wines from 2017 are rich and very structured.
    30% of the wine was aged in french and american oak barrels for 8 months.Spicy and dried herbs, every bit a Shiraz but with more restraint and structure than an Aussie Shiraz of the same price (in my humble opinion). Good spice and tannins make it good with food but it’s still soft enough to enjoy on its own. Maybe it’s the 15% of Petit Verdot in the blend which elevates it from the norm?

  • Excelsior Purebred Red South Africa

    From a great Estate in Robertson Shiraz Vines and Merlot combine together with a hint of oak, but mainly left to settle and rest in tank for nine months before release. Blackcurrants, cherries and spices. This is a soft and smooth wine very easy to drink on its own.

  • 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.

  • Du Plevaux Pinotage South Africa

    New vintage of  “a hidden gem” ( Platter’s 2016) just back in stock. A masculine Pinotage with a rich dark plum colour, complemented by a structured palate of coffee, chocolate & black berries which support the long soft finish. A minimal five months in barrels make it fruit-driven rather than too oaky.
