Best of SA vs Burgundy – R 450

Thursday, 27 July, Wine Cellar Dunkeld

This is our most popular tasting in the ‘SA against the world’ series. Can our Chardonnay and Pinot Noir compete with the fine wines of Burgundy? Recent local and international Chardonnay tastings have revealed that it’s our strongest category, while Pinot Noir has made a leap in quality over the last 5 years. Should we be paying 2 to 3 times the price for Burgundy?

Bordeaux 2014: A full review of a classic vintage – R 650

Thursday, date TBC, Wine Cellar Dunkeld

2014 Bordeaux is a very good to excellent vintage,’ writes Neal Martin of the Wine Advocate. Its long growing season, which started off with rather difficult weather, ended with an Indian Summer. The wines show ‘freshness, terroir expression, an erring towards red rather than black fruit, crisp and occasionally quite edgy tannins and vivacity’ according to Neal. We taste through all the major appellations, including the likes of Léoville Poyferré and Smith Haut Lafitte and, one of the top wines of the vintage, Vieux Château Certan.

Burgundy 2015: A benchmark vintage – R 750

Thursday, 7 September, Wine Cellar Dunkeld

An extraordinary vintage throughout the Côte d’Or,’ writes Decanter and ‘make no mistake, 2015 Burgundy is a great vintage,’ says Neal Martin. The reds are full of fruit but hold amazing freshness from the cooler evenings during ripening. The whites are more generous and show incredible depth and texture. Wines from across Burgundy – Village through to Grand Cru – from Joseph Drouhin, Henri Boillot and Hudelot-Noëllat will be shown. A must for all Burgundy lovers.

Johan Reyneke: Biodynamics and fine wine – R 350

Thursday, 21 September, Wine Cellar Dunkeld

Not only is Reyneke producing some of the most exciting fine wines in Stellenbosch (and South Africa for that matter), they lead the field in Biodynamic winemaking too. Johan Reyneke adopted the more natural approach more than a decade ago, believing that the healthiest-possible vineyards produce the most vibrant and terroir-expressive fruit. Apart from the new Reserve Red, Reserve White and Cabernet Sauvignon, Johan will show their new, small-production RAW Chenin Blanc.
