A A Badenhorst Papegaai White Blend 2017

Grown up doesn't mean boring! The 2017 rendition of our favourite Papegaai has more depth and layers - a crunchy poached and dried pear, quince, and lemon biscuit number. For those not familiar with bushvine Palomino (and when it's not made in to sherry,) it offers stunning subtle aromas of salted green apples - very fine and nuanced.

Thelema Mountain Sauvignon Blanc 2017

This has a very pretty aroma, more blackcurrant than the herbaceous gooseberry styles you can get. The palate is lovely, floaty, elegant and pretty. Refreshing but not at all sharp or aggressive. I really like it, reminding me of what it was like at its best. Refreshing but not overtly so. A lovely drink. Many Sauvignons from anywhere in the world cost a lot more but few are more enjoyable.

Alphabetical White Vin Blanc 2017

A blindingly good wine for the price made from one of my favourite grapes, roussanne, that you find in Northern and Southern Rhone blends, but in this case from South Africa. It is a masterful little wine that wont overtake proceedings but will add a lovely bit of character to a lunch or an evening - a scent here and there of stone fruits and mountain herbs as you lift the glass to your nose - with just the right amount of fruit and character for foods like fish, chicken, or fresh pasta with vegetables or riccota. It will be lovely with light starters like burrata and olives. It sits firmly in, if not at the very summit of, the unbeatable-value midweek bottle category. If you are in one of those households where someone likes Sauvignon but someone has gone off it, and you can't agree on what to drink then try this.

AA Badenhorst Secateurs Chenin Blanc 2018

SPECIAL 12 BOTTLE PRICE FOR NOVEMBER MONEY WEEK WINE CLUB - ONE MONTH ONLY 'I am a fan, but I’ve never been on the edge of my seat with excitement concerning this wine. There are a lot of Cape Chenins out there and this is a good one, but in 2018 it has elevated its flavour-delivery and sense of grandeur to an entirely different plane. The fruit is pristine with discreet pineapple husk, lemon balm and mint notes embedded in the lightly honeyed theme. It is long and vibrant but also crunchy and sour. It can tackle a good plate of grub or just be left to its own devices as a pre-dinner charmer. I love it!' Matthew Jukes, Money Week

Thelema Mountain Sutherland Chardonnay Elgin 2017

To have a wine that keeps you coming back from more, time after time, and has you discovering new things with each inhale, at this price point, is a thing of true beauty and rarity. At first you get a toasty, slighty smokey beurre noissette on the nose that opens into a vanilla tinted toffee apple and just a touch of that tangy citrus to draw it back in. The palate continues this incredible focus and taut minerality with chantilly cream served over a rich buttery apple tart injected with that vigour and exuberance of a flinty minerality.

The Great SA Wine Co Great White 2015

Lemongrass, grapefruits, white lillies, hints of honey and white peach notes. The acidity is long and fine, giving a refreshing length to the wine. Barrel ferment Sauvignon has such a charm to it, and the Semillon is just beginning to assert itself. Beautifully composed with a generous and ambrosial palate.

Blank Bottle Moment of Silence, Wellington 2017

Stunning, all rounder there is nothing you can fault in this wine. The 2017 shows less intensity than the 2016, but is by no means any less delicious, maintaining all of it's style and swagger. Aromas of candied lemon, cooked apple and mango with a core of minerality. Soft and voluptuous, it has a lovely ripeness and a fleshy, creamy mouthfeel, which leads to a perfect tangy freshness giving some zip to its otherwise mellow feel.

Though not, it's not Viognier. 100% Fernao Pires from one 51 year old vineyard planted in sandy soils on the Darling side of the Swartland.

Blank Bottle Orbitofrontal Cortex 2016

Orbitofrontal Cortex is named after the part of your brain where conscious decisions are made. It's fair to expect great things with a wine made as the consciously selected best of the best....! On the nose, we have layers of sun dried hay, tonnes of sweet conference pears, baked apples, even some fresh crunchy green apple acidity. It's an intricately put together number, but no fear, if you like your whites with texture, crunch, ripe fruit and with a story, then this is for you.

Thorne and Daughters "Rocking Horse" 2017

'Rocking Horse is our cornerstone wine and takes its name from a wooden rocking horse that we made for our daughters out of old oak barrel staves. This is our signature wine and it is where all our work comes together to make our most complete wine. The wine is composed from a number of carefully selected vineyard sites in the Western Cape. The aromas are of lime leaf, white peach, exotic woods, and sweet dried herbs. In the mouth, the wine starts broad and rich, resolving into a keen line of acidity supported by a gentle tannin with flavours of burnt sugar, orange flower and rooibos leaf.'

Restless River Ava Marie Chardonnay 2015

The boutique winery of Restless River is located in Hemel-en-Aarde where winemakers Craig and Anne Wessels are carefully making two Restless River wines. Established in 1999 in this very young wine region, the Restless River’s Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay vineyards represent some of the oldest in all of the valley. The fruit, sourced from tiny yields from vines planted on extremely diverse soils and located only 5km from the Atlantic Ocean, struggles to ripen in this particularly cold climate and lingers on the vine long into autumn, often harvested as late as May. All wines produced from Restless River are unfined as well as unfiltered.

Alphabetical Red Vin Ordinaire 2016

A deep purple in the glass, there's something undeniably juicy, bitter sweet chocolatey and clove studded fruit laden about this. Dark chocolate dipped orange, a hint of menthol with a lovely warm earthiness- think sunbaked earth and terracota pots with juicy Autumn blackberries. It would work splendidly with a grilled Barnsley chop cooked with rosemary and some whole baked garlic cloves. A great take on a Cape style Bordeaux blend.

A A Badenhorst Papegaai Cinsault 2017

Last year, we asked Adi, more hopefully than expectantly, whether he would consider making a red Papegaai to complement his deliriously popular Papegaai white blend. And he did it. No demure, no delay, no cheeky Badenhorst mind games. It was almost frighteningly straight-forward. To top it off, the wine he came up with, a 100% Cinsault, was utterly lovely: bright, light, clean and crunchily fruity, just a joy to drink - another gold star for the bird man of Kalmoesfontein and many happy, sated Swiggers. If only life could always be this way...A week or so ago, with bated breath, we had our first taste of the second vintage and, joy of joys, the man's gone and done it again!

If you like freshness, florals, prettiness and perfume in your wines, then look no further. Somewhat reminiscent of the wines of the Terrasses du Larzac, with its Pinot Noir like weight and high toned perfume. Very supple palate with juicy blackberries, rasberry leaf, even a little savoury herbal touch. Pop this in the fridge for half an hour and pour liberally. With bbq grub, with friends.

First time they have done a varietal Cabernet Sauvignon now that the vines are older (25 years). Winemaker's note: Rich crimson red colour. The nose is a complex mix of savoury notes: crushed herbs, violets, sandalwood, leather and some lovely bright red fruit. The palate is fine and yet powerful. Lush spicy red fruit is complimented by blueberry and bramble notes. Powerful tight-knit tannin and a very linear acidity afford the wine a long succulent finish. Drink 2017-2030.

Lukas Van Loggerenberg 'Breton' Cabernet Franc 2016

It’s telling that Lukas references cool-climate Old World wine with his Cab Franc. ‘Breton’ is in fact the local Loire name for the grape. Lukas has made just three barrels of it from a couple of rows of vines in the Polkadraai Hills, just outside of Stellenbosch. Most Cape cab franc is made in the Bordelais mould, but here there’s more affinity with Anjou or Touraine – the grapes are picked early, giving an ]eminently quaffable 12.5% alcohol. Winemaking is very hands-off. Natural ferment, neutral barrels, no racking until bottling with no additives except a little SO2 at bottling. Pure, vibrant juice, wonderfully self-assured, low in alcohol but with the tannic structure and acidity to work really well with food - and to age.

Keermont Steepside Syrah 2012

Planted in 2005 on the steep midslopes of the Helderberg Mountain range, Steepside Syrah sits at an elevation of 300m. Vines grow in rich red clay loam soils with high levels of iron and quartzite originating from the peaks above. The combination of these deep granitic soils and the intensity of the sunshine on the North facing ridge allows the vineyard to produce wines with power and structure, while the spicy herbal aromatics can be attributed to the elevation and the pristine fynbos flora that surround it. All grapes used in producing our wines are grown on Keermont Vineyards. Small parcels of grapes are specifically selected according to ripeness, harvested by hand and vinified separately. This process is carried out gently and naturally in open top fermenters using traditional methods only. This wine spent 20 months maturing in 2'nd fill French oak barrels before being bottled by hand without filtration on 25 November 2013. Only 867 bottles were produced.

This is a stunning vintage. It put us off schedule by 2 hours, so much were we enjoying this exceptionally beautiful fine wine. One of these wines that can beat top end Cabernets and Bordeaux in blind tastings. It's drinking now. The value is absurd and a brilliant wine to stock up on. Bordeaux lovers will swoon when they breathe in the sweet perfume of sandalwood, ink, plum, oyster shells and graphite. In the mouth it has heft, flesh and savour, along with a bright acidity that gently ushers everything along. It's silky, elegant and deep. Beautiful wine.
