Excelsior Sauvignon Blanc South Africa – SORRY, OUT OF STOCK
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….Sauvignon BlancCrisp & Refreshing WhitesSouth Africa2018750 ml13-13.5%

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?Shiraz/SyrahRich & Fruity RedsSouth Africa2017750 ml14%+

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.ChardonnayCrisp & Refreshing WhitesUnoaked WhitesSouth Africa2018750 ml13-13.5%
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.Red BlendsSoft & Smooth RedsSouth Africa2016750 ml14%+
Esona Single Vineyard Boutique Sauvignon Blanc
Pronounced “Air-Sor-Na” this Sauvignon Blanc is the best one I have tasted since we first shipped Zoetendal seven years ago! (remember that?) There is tiny production, just 9250 vines (2.66 hectares). Lovely rich, fat style which has developed into an almost Chablis-like minerality. Great food wine.Sauvignon BlancUnoaked WhitesSouth Africa2016750 ml11%-12.5%13-13.5%
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.

Du Plevaux Elizabeth Alberta Chenin Blanc/Viognier South Africa – SORRY, OUT OF STOCK
Gold medal at 2018 Vitis Vinifera Awards. Chenin Blanc is South Africa’s “work-horse” white providing the bulk of many cheaper blends. However, there is a Chenin Blanc Society of winemakers dedicated to demonstrating just how good it can be when you put your mind, energy and application to it. Here’s one of those – rich, complex, minerally and with a hint of Viognier to round it off, it’s a delight. Eat with even quite rich foods or on its own.White BlendsRich WhitesSouth Africa2018750 ml13-13.5%
