A.A. Badenhorst Wines White Blend - 2011

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Chenin Blanc / Roussanne
Grenache Blanc / Grenache Gris
Verdehlo / Colombar / Viognier

Nose: The aromas are very complex and change considerably in the glass. Perfume, spice, tea, stone fruit and citrus blossoms are some of the notes that can be detected.

Palate: In the mouth the texture and ripeness and gentle tannins result in a wine that has incredible length and a complex flavor profile. The wine also has wonderful fruit volume, characterised by stone fruit and mineral flavors. The finish is long and has slight phenolic edges supporting the fruit through the entire length of the wine.

Notes: A.A. Badenhorst Family Wines is a small wine producer in the Swartland region of South Africa. It is known for its premium blended wines: the full-bodied, complex white wine is made up of Chenin Blanc with a wide range of other grape varietiesThe vines are unirrigated and farmed as biologically as possible. The fruit is whole bunch-handled so no crushing or destemming takes place.

White Blend
A.A. Badenhorst Wines Family Red - 2010

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Shiraz (74%)
Grenache (18%)
Cinsault (6%)

Nose: The aromas are brooding with complex notes of pepper, licorices, perfume and black cherries.

Palate: The palate entry is quite dense with lavender and dark berry fruit. The finish is dry with well spread tannins ending with savory and currant flavors.

Notes: From small parcels of selected fruit that are sourced from various vineyards on our farm, Kalmoesfontein, in the Swartland area and the greater Paardeberg Mountain. The grapes are sorted meticulously in the vineyard and transported in small picking boxes to a refrigerated container where they are left overnight to cool down. The following day the grapes are transferred to fermentation vessels made of concrete or wood. No grapes are crushed or destemmed and minimal sulphur is added at this stage. The grapes are then “foot stomped” to extract juice to assist the onset of natural fermentation. The wine was pressed into used 4000L casks for a maturation period of 16 months.

Naudé White Blend
Albert Ahrens Black No 1 - Nv

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Syrah
Grenache
Carignan

Nose: On the nose it has spicy and sweet fruit aromas, showing off sugary strawberry and cherry, with a slight meatiness in the background.

Palate: On entry there is beautiful, clean fruit which is soft on the palate with a slightly spicy white pepper nuance, followed by a fruity aftertaste on the mid-palate. A slightly dry finish of ripe berries rounds of this amazing offering!

Notes: Albert, who is the former winemaker of Lammershoek in Swartland, has handcrafted this unique blend of 35% white wine from the 2009 vintage and 65% red wine from the 2008 vintage in the traditional Rhône style, reminiscent of an old Châteauneuf-du-Pape, with predominantly Syrah, Grenache, Carignan and Mourvédrè grapes. Bottled on 8 and 9 December 2009 only a limited amount of 107 bottles were made!

Black No 1
Ashbourne Ashbourne - 2007

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Pinotage (82%)
Cabernet Sauvignon (9%)
Shiraz (9%)

Nose: High toned aromas of spicy red berries, dried flowers, mint, marzipan and smoky, nutty and slightly resiny oak.

Palate: The taste is aggressively deep in the mouth, with flavors of black raspberry, iron , leather, smoke and earth, perked up with a note of tart cranberry. This boast terrific freshness and snappy depth of flavor. Finishes firmly tannic and impressively long.

Notes: The 2007 is the fourth release of Anthony Hamilton Russell's iconic and rare homage to Pinotage. Ashbourne does not carry the varietal on the label as a statement of Anthony’s belief that the variety is a mere medium for expressing character of the site and soil, than the site and soil are for expressing the character of the variety. The Ashbourne is grown on extremely clay-rich, stony soils, well suited to nursing a high level of refinement and classic styling out of Pinotage. Ashbourne is named after Anthony’s great, great grandfather Lord Ashbourne who was Lord Chancellor of Ireland in the late 1800’s. Aged in 40% new, 40% 2nd fill, 20% 3rd fill barrels for 14 months.

Ashbourne
Ashbourne Ashbourne Sandstone - 2007

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Sauvignon Blanc (85%)
Chardonnay (15%)

Nose: Tropical fruit with smoky melon aromas.

Palate: The aromas lead to a bone-dry, flinty and citrusy palate.

Notes: Ashbourne Sandstone is grown on quartzitic sandstone soils which emphasise the nervous energy and minerality of Sauvignon Blanc. Hamilton Russell says he wants the wine to be “edgy and nervous” and hence Sauvignon Blanc grown on light-structured sandstone being the major component. Chardonnay (and Semillon in other vintages) are included in order to contribute to the age-worthiness and palate weight without competing with the aromatics.

Five Generations Cabernet Sauvignon
DeMorgenzon Reserve Chenin Blanc - 2012

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Chenin Blanc (100%)

Nose: Beautifully integrated butterscotch and vanilla compote aromas, more pear drop than apricot.

Notes: DeMorgenzon is a firm believer in the positive effects of melodic sound energy on plant growth, has instituted a vitimusicology programme, whereby Baroque music is played 24 hours a day through strategically placed speakers in the vineyards and cellar. The mathematical rhythm unique to this music translates into wines of exquisite balance, elegance and complexity.

Cultivars:
Cabernet Franc (54%)

Gouverneurs Reserve
Haskell Vineyards Aeon - 2010

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Shiraz (95%)
Mourvèdre (5%)

Nose: The nose has lifted elements of red cherries, cinnamon, black pepper and sexy violets to round off.

Palate: The pallet has a firm tannin structure with good dimension of fruit and wood balance.

Notes: The Aeon Syrah grapes are from a more clay based area and blended with 5% Mouvedre to give a more fruity Syrah than the Pillars Syrah. The 2009 Vintage was skipped due to a low yielding year with all Shiraz grapes going into the Haskell II.

Cabernet Sauvignon (73%)
Merlot (15%)

Palate: The palate has a soft attack with firm tannins and a subtle creamy texture. Lingering aftertaste, with the same flavors as on the nose.

Notes: Haskell IV is Haskell's flagship wine and so called because it contains four of the five Bordeaux varieties (73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc) but also because owner Haskell is the fourth Preston in the family.

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Pinotage (100%)

Nose: Forward wild fruit, prune and youngberry with toasted cedar, vanilla and gun smoke.

Klein Constantia Estate Block No 382 Sauvignon Blanc - 2012

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Sauvignon Blanc (100%)

Nose: Yellow apple, quince and a touch of white pepper on the nose.

Palate: Slightly volatile which adds rather than detracts. Tangy acidity. It’s geeky but delicious.

Notes: Called somewhat prosaically Block 382 and from the 2012 vintage, grapes come from a block a little higher than the celebrated Perdeblokke and more east facing. This wine was not available for sale in the market and only available from two restaurants of which one was Restaurant Mosaic.

Block No 382 Sauvignon Blanc
Le Riche Wines Cabernet Sauvignon - 2011

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Cabernet Sauvignon (100%)

Nose: The bouquet shows forthcoming ripe cherries, fresh plums and mint. Hints of vanilla and cedar balance out the fruit.

Palate: Soft, smooth tannins are balanced on the palate by a firm structure and juicy, succulent, long finish.

Notes: The grapes are selected from a variety of sites within Stellenbosch, ranging from the sandy gravel soils in the Firgrove and Raithby wards to the decomposed granite soils of the Jonkershoek valley and Bottelary wards. In essence it is a blend of Stellenbosch Cabernets showing the variety of terroirs to be found. Five days fermentation in open tanks with temperature control and regular manual punch- downs and pump-overs. The malolactic fermentation occurred in lined concrete tanks after which the wine was transferred to 225L barrels. 24 months in French oak barrels, 30 % new oak.

Cabernet Sauvignon
Le Riche Wines Richesse - 2012

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Cabernet Sauvignon
Merlot
Malbec

Nose: Typical red fruit flavors of plum and red cherries are balanced with a touch of oak on the nose. There are some rosemary and mint aromas as well with the soft fruit flavors. After a while in the glass some beautiful spice aromas develop.

Palate: Juicy mouth filling flavors of red berries, prominent cherries and some smoky hints in the back are supported by a fine, soft tannin structure and a well-rounded finish. Made in a very fruit forward style by Christo with a delicate tannin structure due to the use of a wooden basket press.

Notes: A Bordeaux blend made by Christo le Riche from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec. A slight deviation from the 2011 vintage which used Cabernet Franc instead of Malbec. The wines were fermented separately until dry in traditional open concrete tanks with regular manual plunging. Secondary fermentation proceeded in tanks after which the wines were moved to French oak barrels. Blended after a year of ageing and matured for a further 8 months in barrel. No fining. Aged for 20 months in French oak barrels. Grapes for this vintage were sourced from Stellenbosch, Firgrove & Jonkershoek. Press broke so Christo was forced to borrow a 50 year old wooden basket press for this vintage - more free-run like but very delicate tannin structure. Very hard work went into this vintage so Christo is very interested to see how this wine develops. This wine has been made since 1997 but was called Cabernet / Merlot before. 2004 was the only vintage with Shiraz but this is not how Etienne and Christo see themselves.

Richesse
SoetKaroo Wine Estate Cape Vintage Reserve (500ml) - 2015

Unit Volume: 500ml

Cultivars:
Touriga Nacional
Petit Verdot

Nose: Intense berry fruit, fresh savoury notes, cinnamon spice nose and flavours that add opulence to the hallmark dry-edge of true Port.

Palate: Still young, it is accessible for drinking now, but the combination of tannins, alcohol and acidity provide the desired ‘grip’ that makes it a vinous investment worth laying down for many years.

Notes: After moving into their old Cape Dutch cottage, the husband and wife team soon started converting the 1ha of land behind their house into a small but productive vineyard. Planting started in 2000 and under Herman’s lead they established a small vineyard with four different cultivars; Red Muscat d’Alexandrie (Red Hanepoot), Red Muscat de Frontignan (Red Muscadel), Petit Verdot and Touriga Nacional, all suited to the dry hot climate of the Great Karoo.
