Grower Champagne Pack

Grower Champagne and our new Insiders Champagne case (FR)

Our obsession with Champagne has led us to explore the exciting category of grower Champagnes. Grower Champagne houses vinify only their own vineyards however and are, therefore, much smaller and operate more like typical French wineries. We recently tasted through copious grower Champagnes and have put together 6 delicious, terroir-driven cuvées from all across the region that offer great value.

 

Best Stellenbosch Cabernet

The best Stellenbosch Cabernet – Winemag 2018 report (SA)

Neil Ellis has firmly staked its claim as the best Stellenbosch Cabernet producer with the back-to-back success of their Neil Ellis Jonkershoek Cabernet Sauvignon in the annual Winemag Cabernet Sauvignon reports. The 2014 was the best Cabernet in the 2017 report and the 2015 was the best Stellenbosch Cabernet in the 2018 report.

Chateau Pesquie

Our international best-seller from the unmissable 2016 vintage (FR)

The 2016s from Château Pesquié are the first of the hailed 2016 Southern Rhône vintage. Decanter calls it ‘unmissable’, while Wine Spectator writes that they ‘may even beat the benchmark of 2010’ and Chapoutier goes as far to say ‘it’s the best in 40 years!’

 

Sadie Family Wines

Sadie Family icons – Columella and Palladius 2016 (SA)

By now, Sadie Family Wines needs no introduction. Eben Sadie is generally regarded as SA’s best winemaker. The Signature wines are the very best that Eben aims to make. Since the maiden 2000 vintage, the Sadie Family Columella has constantly changed to better express the Swartland. It has since become a modern icon and is one of SA’s most sought-after and collected wines.

Crystallum Pinot Noir

Peter-Allan’s 10th and most accomplished vintage – Crystallum 2017(SA)

Peter-Allan Finlayson is a leader in producing some of the finest modern-day SA Pinots. His 2017 Crystallum Pinot Noirs are his most exciting and potent releases to date. His 10th vintage coincides with the highly-rated 2017 vintage. They exude a fantastic combination of both power and clarity and all 3 speak clearly of their place.

Château Trimoulet - St-Emilion

Maturing St-Émilion Grand Cru for a song (FR)

After tasting through hundreds of Bordeauxs on a recent buying trip, we came across an excellent parcel of maturing St-Émilion at a super price. This is a medium-bodied Bordeaux, made in a traditional style, from what would be regarded as a classic vintage on the Right Bank.

Wine Cellar x Carne

Wine Cellar's steak night with Carne on Kloof (SA)

Combining our powers, Wine Cellar and Carne will be pairing 4 red wines with 3 different and lesser-known cuts of meat in order to discover the ultimate steak wine.

Rocking Horse 2017

Rocking Horse 2017 – A thoroughbred (SA)

John Seccombe’s Thorne & Daughters Rocking Horse Cape White Blend and Wanderer’s Heart Cape Red Blend are the latest vins extraordinaires from the highly-rated 2017 vintage. ‘The subsequent refinement of vision over time plus the excellent vintage that was 2017 sees John Seccombe now releasing his strongest set of wines to date.’ – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za.

Sijnn Free Reign

Cheval des Andes: An Argentinian 'Grand Cru' – Decanter (AR)

We are excited to offer one of Argentina’s most famous wine projects from high up on the terraces of the Andes mountains. The 2016 Terrazas de los Andes Reserva Malbec is an elegant wine whilst Cheval des Andes, its sister wine, is the joint venture between Château Cheval Blanc and Terrazas de los Andes and is often described as Argentina’s Grand Cru.

 

2015 Cabernet Sauvignon

Tokara comes of age – Telos 2015 (SA)

Consistently recognised as one of SA’s top wineries, Tokara has finally entered the luxury market with the release of the 2015 Telos. Named after the Greek term describing the end of a goal-directed process, the 4 best barrels were selected from a 17-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon block planted on a 35% slope at 400m above sea level.

Alheit Vineyards 2017s

Alheit Vineyards 2017s: SA’s best young wines released to date (SA)

Chris and Suzaan Alheit, together with their assistant Franco Lourens and recently-appointed viticultural consultant Etienne Terblanche, are the dream team that firmly establishes Alheit Vineyards as SA’s premier white wine producer. Simply put, this line-up includes the best young wines we have tasted to date.

 

Numanthia 2012

Numanthia – Dense, potent and hedonistic (ES)

You will struggle to find a wine region that produces wines as dense, potent and hedonistic as those of Toro. Produced from Tinta de Toro, a smaller-berried clone of Tempranillo offering greater concentration in the arid northern regions of Spain, it often shows more Cabernet-like tannins than Ribera del Duero or Rioja.
