- Born of Fire Syrah 2021 by Julien and Sophie Schaal
ORGANIC. It has a complex nose showing rich, red to dark fruit and plenty of exotic, sweet-scented spice with an appealing floral edge. The palate is layered and long, and is packed with rich red plum, black cherry flavour and dark chocolate. Flabbergast
- Cinsaut 2019 by Erika Obermeyer
Fruit sourced from a 34-year old, dry-land bushvines in Agter-Paarl, is de-stemmed and fermented in stainless steel (70% whole berry). The wine is matured in old oak barrels and concrete (50/50) for 12 months. The nose is fleshy and ripe with sweet strawberry compote, red fruits and gentle fynbos notes. Subtle hints of black olives and spice add extra intrigue. The palate is fresh-fruited and vibrant with focused tannins. This is a delightful all-rounder, ‘any time’ wine. Serve lightly chilled.
- Raar Grenache Noir 2023
It’s back! One of last year’s top-sellers, this is a light-medium Grenache Noir from the Swartland. Serve chilled
- Anysbos Tesame 2021
A favourite!. This blend of Grenache Noir, Shiraz and Cinsaut made by Marelise Niemann for Johan and Sue Heyns in their Botriver cellar. Vibrant spice, red/black berry and hard candy on the nose. The palate shows wonderful depth with a fresh finish supported by powdery tannins. This sleek, refined medium-bodied will develop over the next 3-5 years.
