  • Brunelli Ripasso “Pa’Riondo”

    This is a serious contender for the Hughes Family Sunday Dinner Red. 2017 vintage tasting beautifully now, but, boy, will it also get even better over the next few years.

    Rich, complex but very silky textures make this a delight. The Ripasso technique consists in refermenting a Valpolicella on the sugars and yeast-rich grape skins of the area’s top wine, Amarone.

    This results in the wine becoming full-bodied, with a great concentration of colour and perfume.Corvina Veronese 65%, Rondinella 25%, Corvinone 10%.

  • “The Inspector General” from The Treaty Port Estate China

    From a vineyard established in 2005 on the Shandong peninsula by Chris Ruffle comes this classic Bordeaux blend, aged in french oak barrels and displaying ripe, dark fruits and a hint of vanilla oak. No surprise that Chateau Lafite chose to make their first Chinese wine, Long Dai 2017, from neigbouring fields! Chris’s vines are older, of course, and 2014 was an excellent vintage. This is a limited release of 5000 bottles.

  • Dogliani La Fusina

    100% Dolcetto grape variety at its most expressive here from the Dogliani DOCG. Deeply coloured, perfumed of dark cherries, brooding and soft. Not a variety to be aged in oak in my opinion and this one isn’t.

  • Excelsior San Louis Shiraz

    In 1979 San Louis fell ill, stopped eating and grew tremendously weak. His grave was dug, but as he was being led to it, the decision was made to try and treat him for a little longer. Seven months later he had recovered completely. On 7 February 1981 San Louis won the 1600m Guineas horse race, one of South Africa’s most prestigious races.

    This vineyard is situated on deep, calcareous soils that allow deep root penetration. This enables the vineyard to withstand heat and drought.

    This wine has an explosive nose of chocolate, espresso, fruitcake, and sweet oak spice. The palate is rich and very soft, with ripe flavours of black cherries and a long rich aftertaste.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Deep ruby red colour with a black core. This wine is full-bodied with aromas of blackcurrants, chocolate and cedar. The wine has rich, but soft tannins and a long finish.

  • Château d’Or et de Gueules ‘Trassegum’ Red

    Château d’Or et de Gueules ‘Trassegum’ Red

    Selected from the best parts of the vineyard, this is a blend of Syrah, Carignan and Mourverdre. Each varietal is kept apart and aged in 500 litre oak barrels for 12 months. Only then do they decide upon the final blend. Once made, the finished wine is aged for yet another 12 months in those same barrels before bottling. Only 10% of the barrels are new wood, so there’s no “in your face ” oakiness here!
    Diane only releases this wine if she feels it is up to her highest standards of quality. So, no 2002 vintage ‘ it was all sold off in bulk to the ‘négociants’. The 2003 vintage was a cracker. No 2004 vintage either; that, too, was not good enough, the 2005, 2007 and 2009s brilliant…as was the 2011.
    And then along came the equally scrumptious 2103, and the super 2015 and now the fab 2016. What more can I say? Drink now to 2026 (really!)
