Fine Italian: Six regions and icon wines – R 450

Thursday, 8 November, Wine Cellar Dunkeld

A great opportunity to get your taste buds around the different regions of Italy with some exciting and iconic wines. From a line-up of mostly reds, we will taste wines from Campania, Piedmont, Sicily, Trentino, Tuscany and Veneto. We will also present an exciting and new, yet utterly classical, Trentino red from San Leonardo, which Jancis describes it as ‘hardly changed since 1982 and now back in fashion’, as well as serious wines from Mastroberardino, Tignanello, Castellare di Castellina and more.

Burgundy 2016 whites: Excellent and entirely classic – R 595

Thursday, 15 November, Wine Cellar Dunkeld

Nature’s wrath of early season frost was the worst since 1981 and the yields were reduced to record lows, meaning allocations have been slashed. The good news is that it is a terrific vintage. In fact, many pundits believe that it’s better than 2015 and offers more vivid freshness, terroir-expression and finer balance. ‘Excellent and entirely classic in style,’ says Allen Meadows who says there is ‘freshness, energy, grace and transparency’ in the vintage. Taste wines from across Burgundy, including Grand Cru wines, from the likes of Joseph Drouhin, Henri Boillot, Héritiers du Comte Lafon as well as an introduction to Domaine Rois Mages from Rully.

SA vs Champagne: A year-end taste-off – R 595

End the year tasting SA’s best bubbles against Grandes Marques Champagnes, including Dom Pérignon and Bollinger, along with cuvées from smaller growers. Representing SA, expect the likes of Le Lude, Graham Beck, Silverthorn and Colmant.

MR de Compostella vertical and the 2016 release – R 400

Thursday, 4 October, Wine Cellar Dunkeld

The 2016 MR de Compostella is, once again, spectacular! With 94 from Neal Martin and 95 from Tim Aktin MW, its incredibly consistent string of local and international ratings makes it arguably SA’s top Bordeaux blend. There was strict selection in 2016 and volumes are down drastically. The finely-tuned, supremely elegant 2016 offers the highest-ever percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon at 63%. Bruwer will be showing a MR vertical of 2016 through to 2012 against the 98-point 2015 Léoville Las Cases!
