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 Africa2020750 ml14%+
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.MerlotSoft & Smooth RedsSouth Africa2019750 ml14%+

Casabel Portuguese Red
Lovely soft red with vibrant cherry-like fruit. A great example of just how much fun Portuguese wines can be.
This is a soft, yet well-structured, unoaked red from the Lisbon Region. If the Cerejeiras is defined by easy fruit, this has a bit more oomph, so will take richer food. It has lovely clean fruit character.Red BlendsSoft & Smooth RedsPortugal2018750 ml13-13.5%
Villa des Anges Reserve (Jeff)
One of those wines which make you stop in your wine-tasting tracks. This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot (roughly a third of each) has been aged for 14 months in tanks with oak staves (!) before bottling. It’s enough to make you wonder whether or not you want to buy expensive claret again!Mixed BlendSoft & Smooth RedsFrance2018750 ml14%+
Laurent Miquel Solas Pinot Noir
Lovely soft, yet food-friendly version of this classic red grape. Medium-bodied and bursting with red berry flavours. Hints of spices and rosemary? 20% aged in 1-2 year old barrels for 6 months to raise the complexity of the wine.Pinot NoirSoft & Smooth RedsFrance2019750 ml13-13.5%
Du Plevaux Pinotage South Africa
“A hidden gem” – Platter’s 2016. 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.

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%+
Verus Pinot Noir, Slovenia
New wine from the gang – their first red – smart Pinot Noir. Verus wines need little commentary. They are all superb, demonstrating what Jancis Robinson called “a purity of fruit” when we shipped their first ever vintage in 2008.Pinot NoirSoft & Smooth RedsSlovenia2015750 ml13-13.5%
