SEPTEMBER CLUB SELECTION
Six bottles of red for R800.00

Jordan no added sulphur Bordeaux – Cabernet Sauvignon & Cabernet Franc make up this juicy red blend made for early enjoyment
Copper Pot Pinot Noir by Thorne and Daughters – soft tannins, great freshness & some weight on the mid-palate. Enjoyable now, but will definitely reward ageing.
MAN Vintners Bosstok Pinotage – satin feel on the palate, plush fruit and a light, fresh finish (winemag top 10)
Raptor Post red by Fable Mountain Vineyards – vibrant red fruit backed by herbs and spice. Soft tannins and more-ish palate. Grenache Noir, Syrah, Mourvedre
Rainbows End Shiraz – delicious, medium body with notes of red plum, herbs. One to sip around the fire.
Laibach Ladybird red – organic. Blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot with 1% Malbec. Earthy, savoury nose with typical cigar box, cedar notes. Plush fruity palate with fine, chalky tannin.

Jordan Outlier Sauvignon Blanc – wooded with 8 months lees contact (50% tank fermented). A full, succulent wine. Well-balanced.
Asylum white by Cape Rock – Chenin Blanc from the Olifantsriver Valley showing plenty of quince and white stone fruit. Rounded palate and light, fresh finish.
Mont Blois Kirby Sauvignon Blanc – well-rounded feel. Gooseberry, grapefruit and passion fruit notes.
Force Celeste Semillon (natural wine) – aromatic and spicy nose with a fleshy yellow citrus palate and savoury finish. Fish & chips anyone?
Laibach Sur Lie Chenin Blanc – organic grapes aged in old barrels & concrete eggs, this is a textural wine with subtle peach/apricot notes. Develops beautifully over a few days.
