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.
This Merlot comes from vines planted on calcareous soils and represent the best Merlot produced on Excelsior.
Deep ruby red colour with a black core. This wine is medium to full-bodied with aromas of blackcurrants, chocolate and earth. The wine has rich but exceptionally soft tannins and a long finish.MerlotSoft & Smooth RedsSouth Africa2018750 ml14%+

Case of six Chateau Lamothe-Vincent Le Grand Rossignol 2018 (Original Wooden Case)
A sort of Château Petrus vinous “tribute band”……A taste of £3000 wine for £25? Six fab bottles in their original wooden case.
I will be stashing away a dozen or so bottles to opened on my 75th birthday (10 years away!)
Gold Medal at the 2021 French International Wine Competition (amongst others). Fabien says;
“Deep black colour with purple tints. Powerful and complex bouquet of liquorice,
black cherry, blackberry, graphite, cedar, toast… Extremely rich though elegant, its
full, silky and coated tannins wrap you in softness. Mineral-toasty nuances on the
long finish. A pure expression of its rare origin.”MerlotBig & Robust RedsFrance2018750 ml14%+
