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%+
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.Red BlendsSoft & Smooth RedsSouth Africa2017750 ml14%+

Abbotts & Delaunay Merlot
Lovely soft Merlot from the south of France yet with firm structure making it equally good on its own or with food. Has good spice and might be mistaken for a claret if served blind!

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%+
