  • Aristargos 2013 David and Nadia

    R750.00

    Enticing bouquet of white peach, earth, dried herbs and flowers. Wonderfully poised with good fruit concentration and lively acidity before a pithy finish. Moves through the mouth really well – the most complete vintage to date.

  • Bellevue 1953 Pinotage 2017

    R650.00

    This wine is history in a glass. Coming from the second oldest block of Pinotage in the entire world, this statement is not so difficult to believe.  Bellevue Wine Estate, situated in Bottelary Stellenbosch, was one of the first places where Pinotage was commercially planted way back in the 1950s. The particular block from which this Pinotage comes, was planted in 1953. Sixty eight years later, it still stands and it still produces incredible wine. Quantity wise, however, it only yields 2 tonnes per hectare. In comparison to 8 tonnes per hectare, which is considered to be the ‘norm’, the yield is certainly small.

    There is very limited stock available and therefore, it is an incredible  privilege to be able to offer this wine from the 64-year-old 2017 vintage. If you are fortunate enough to taste a glass, or better yet, own a bottle, be sure to savour it completely, for it is something truly special.

  • Clifton One Gin

    R500.00

    Clifton Gin

    Fashioned as a sipping gin. Which basically means do not add any tonic to this. This is rather interesting as gin is not very well known as the sort of thing that you knock back neat. I think it’s brilliant to find a product that does things differently from convention, backs itself to be awesome and then turns out to be exactly that.

    Named after the iconic Clifton beaches in Cape Town, each found at the bottom of a cliff, it is a tribute to the beautiful beaches of the cape.

    Do not take my word for it, have a sip of it on the rocks before you add any mixer, you may find that it is indeed an excellent sipping gin.

    Tasting note

    Floral notes dominante the nose and entry lavender being particularly prominent, at its core it has typical gin notes of juniper and sweet spices and finishes with a rich caramelised sugar note that lingers on the finish. The palate has a fantastic opulent creamy texture.

    VINTAGE CONDITIONS

    A very good, cold wet winter ensured the soil moisture supply was filled and we had even bud burst. We had cool, wet weather at the beginning of the growing season resulting in a slow start and moderate healthy growth. High rainfall in November and January meant there was no need for any irrigation. Fungal disease pressure was high in November / December, but well timed contact sprays kept the vines healthy. Bunch and berry size was a little larger than usual due to the higher rain and less wind than usual. This resulted in a little less concentrated, more delicate fresh style. Moderate temperatures and no rain over harvest meant the development of attractive fresh fruity characters.

    Harvest date: 6/03/2014-14/03/2014 @ 23.2-25.3 Balling.

    PRODUCTION

    100% destemming and crushing by hand directly into 2 ton open top fermentation tanks. Spontaneous natural yeast fermentation @ 30ºC with the cap of skins punched down 2 – 3 times a day for 15 days. Wine drained directly to barrels, together with single pressing from traditional basket press for malolactic fermentation. 35% new French oak was used from high quality coopers. Time in barrels 22 months with several rackings to gradually clarify the wine and assist maturation. Bottled unfiltered by hand on the property.
    Bottling date: 27/1/2016
    Production: 968 x 12 x 750ml; 120 x 1,5L; 12 x 3L.

    TASTING NOTES

    Youthful medium deep red colour. Lovely fruitcake, dark berry and cigar box spice nose. Soft, gentle palate for such a young Cabernet with juicy dark berry, fruitcake and spice flavours. Drinking well in 2017, but best between 2020 and 2028 with roast beef! Ideal in a Spiegelau Bordeaux Magnum glass or similar.

    R1,200.00

    Produced with. Unique and partly secret methods that have remained unchanged since the 18th century, Hampden Estate has a distinct and iconic aromatic profile. This is in great part due to an extremely high level of esters achieved by a very long and complex process.

    Excellent for sipping and mixology.
