A “Cape Blend” featuring 33% Pinotage. Clear, medium-deep plum red tipping to garnet. Fairly intense nose of blackberry and musky grapes, oak and dates. Juicy mouthful, with the animal tang of the Pinotage grapes and tart blueberries, lively acidity and soft tannins with chocolate on a long finish. Spicy, wild flavours go well with Chinese 5-spice duck and veggies stir-fried in sesame oil.
This iconic Bordeaux-style Cab Sauv/Merlot/Cab Franc blend opens with its characteristic aromas of cedar, blackcurrant and sagebrush. The elegantly structured palate showcases dark fruit and cocoa flavours, balanced by fresh acidity and firm tannins. Finishes with lingering cigar box and dried sage. A reliable companion to grilled meats.
Quite light in colour and medium weight, this one belies its 14.5% alcohol. Nose is already refined and complex, showing red currant and subtle spice, but the wine needs 3-5 years or more to integrate and soften hard tannins and youthful acidity.
Bordeaux meets the South of France in this Cab Sauv/Syrah/Grenache blend. Medium-deep garnet. Nose of violets and strawberry jam, with a bit of cumin and leather. Medium-bodied, tastes of remarkably fresh red berries. Acids and tannins are still prominent; this will last another couple of years. A good match for a marinated leg of lamb roasted with Middle-Eastern spices, dates and almonds.
Excellent balance between creamy and fresh textures with crisp, elegant and complex notes of pear, lime and nuts. 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir. Layered and versatile with everything from poached salmon to cassoulet.
Levendi means “handsome man/eye-pleasing,” and indeed this wine will please those who enjoy jammy reds decked in oak. It hits the senses with blackberry, crème de cassis, cherry liqueur, vanilla, smoke and mint. Full-bodied and ready to drink.
Yet another very tasty Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand at an affordable price. Very pale lime in colour with a nose of cut grass and elderberries. It's medium-bodied with a flavour of sweet passionfruit; fresh grapefruit acidity prolongs the taste in the mouth.
