Bruwer Vinters (B Vintners) Black Bream Pinot Noir 2018 – Sondagskloof fruit. A delicate Pinot, with subtle red berry and floral notes. An appealing salinity reveals itself with time in the glass. Fine tannins, good freshness and length.
Raats Dolomite Cabernet Franc 2018 – a smidgeon of Malbec adds density to this popular Cab Franc. Black and red berries, spice and herbs. Fine, powdery tannins leave you craving more.
Amnesty 2017 by Cape Rock Wines – the label entices people to buy it, but they always come back for more. A blend of Syrah, Grenach Noir and Mourvedre from this small producer located in the Olifants River Valley. Red fruit and spice on a plush palate wtih a fresh, yet soft finish. Not a dense, heavy wine, this also lends itself to being served slightly chilled on a summer afternoon
Hpf Kleinboet 2010 (Hermanuspietersfontein) – recently tasted along with a few other older vintages of this, the Swartskaap and the #5 (aka Kat met die Houtbeen) Sauvignon Blanc. This is ready to drink. Blend comprises 60% Cab Sauv, 18% Merlot, 10% Cab Franc, 6% Malbec and 6% Petit Verdot. Red fruit profile with typical cassis and cedar. Soft tannins, but natural acidity still provides freshness.
Blake Family Malbec 2018 (Single Vineyard) – intense purple colour; soft, plummy and plush with a wee hint of spice and herbs.
Marras Piekenierskloof Grenache Noir 2019 – another wine best served slightly chilled. A vibrant, bright, red-fruited wine with a light, refreshing feel on the palate.
