Bordeaux 2016: Value wines from ‘the greatest vintage’ – R 400

Thursday, 24 October, Wine Cellar Dunkeld
Time: 18h30 – 20h00

‘Is 2016 the perfect Bordeaux?’ asks the Wine Enthusiast and we are hugely excited to try find the answer. What makes the 2016 vintage so special is the quality across the Bordeaux hierarchy, with extraordinary structure and refined tannins. A vintage to buy down, there is value to be found and we taste through incredible wines from R300 per bottle. All the major appellations of Bordeaux will be represented, with highlights from Réserve de la Comtesse, Les Cruzelles and Chasse-Spleen.

Burgundy White and Reds 2017: The epitome of Burgundian elegance – R 650

Wednesday, 13 November, Wine Cellar Dunkeld
Time: 18h30 – 20h00

Neal Martin calls the 2017 Burgundy vintage a ‘modern classic’. As nearly every winemaker opined, 2017 is a vintage that distinguishes one terroir from another with remarkable consistency. The Wine Advocate suggested that, ‘for the white wines, 2017 should be taken seriously...,’ while, ‘the 2017 reds are very good, often excellent, and from time to time, bloody awesome,’ says Martin. Enjoy and learn as we taste through all the major villages through to Grand Cru from Hudelot-Noëllat, Olivier Leflaive, Harmand-Geoffroy, Henri Boillot and Joseph Drouhin.

SA vs Champagne: A year-end taste-off – R 650

Thursday, 28 November, Wine Cellar Dunkeld
Time: 18h30 – 20h00

The quality of Méthode Cap Classique is at an all-time high as the category as a whole is redefined by the leading producers. Can the best of SA compete with Champagne? Our annual year-end tasting puts best bubbles against grower and Grandes Marques Champagnes, including the likes of Dom Pérignon, Drappier and Jacquesson. Expect SA representatives in Silverthorn, Pieter Ferreira, Colmant and Le Lude. Always one of the most popular and fun tastings of the year.
