Vin de Constance 2015

Sweet wine of the year – 2015 Klein Constantia Vin de Constance (SA)

The De Morgenzon The Divas Chenin Blanc 2017 follows on from the success of the first release which Matt Kramer of Wine Spectator named as one of the 3 most exciting white wines of the 21st century. Rated 98/100 by Tim Atkin MW, the 2017 is his highest-scoring Stellenbosch white and ‘is even better than the first remarkable release‘.

 

DeMorgenzon Divas

The Divas Chenin Blanc – ‘One of the 3 most exciting wines of the 21st Century’ (SA)

Vin de Constance is one of the world’s greatest sweet wines and the 2015 is causing a real buzz in the European market. Just released, it maintains its impressive track record with Tim Atkin MW regarding it as ‘one of the greatest ever vintages of this iconic sticky’ and naming it his Overall Sweet Wine of the Year.

Niepoort 2014s

‘The best terroir in Portugal’– Dirk Niepoort (PT)

As with all Dirk’s projects around the world, his focus is on traditionally made wines that offer elegance while showcasing terroir. Baga is the indigenous grape variety and is likened to Pinot Noir when made in the classic style. The Lagar de Baixo and Poeirinho are light, yet concentrated Baga beauties. We also feature the elegant Douro Vertente and the Conciso Tinto from Dão which are made in the same style.

 

Boekenhoutskloof 2016s

Boekenhoutskloof – Classic 2016 Syrah confirms icon status (SA)

The latest Boekenhoutskloof Syrah showcases the quality of the dry 2016 vintage in the Swartland. The harvest produced smaller berries with a greater ratio of tannin to juice and much more concentration. Now completely in the hands of Gottfried Mocke, it is the standout wine amongst Boekenhoutskloof’s 2016 releases. Once again, it confirms their standing as a benchmark South African producer.

Break a leg Blanc de Noir 2018

Just released – Break a leg 2018 (SA)

Lukas Van Loggerenberg is one of SA’s most exciting new winemakers. He has just been named 2018 Young Winemaker of the Year by Tim Atkin. Arguably his most important wine was his first release of the Break a Leg in 2016. It was essential in getting his fledgling winery on the go. Available only in small quantities, the previous vintages sold out in a flash.

 

Opstal Chenin Blanc

Over-delivers by the bucket load: Opstal Chenin Blanc 2017 (SA)

A string of Platter’s 5-star accolades proves that Attie Louw of Opstal knows a thing or two about producing top-end Chenin Blanc. When we asked the price of the newly released 2017 Opstal Chenin Blanc, we knew we were on to a winner! It could easily sell for double the price and has fast become a staff favourite.

AA Badenhorst 2017s

AA Badenhorst single vineyard 2017s – All rated 3 ‘golden tears’ (SA)

After a decade of farming 41 hectares of old vines, with the oldest planted in 1952, Adi Badenhorst's tiny-production of 2017 single vineyards are simply incredible. These 3 Chenin Blancs are full and textured and have a vivid freshness that will allow ageing. The reds are more deft and elegant and hold amazing precision and depth.

 

MR De Compostella 2016

Latest MR De Compostella 2016 (SA)

The latest vintage of the Mvemve Raats 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 during the 2016 vintage and volumes are down drastically.

Chateau Pesquie

Royal wine from Olivier Leflaive (FR)

The Olivier Leflaive Bourgogne Les Sétilles was the drink of choice at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding reception. We are delighted to have this classy Chardonnay from one of Burgundy’s leading producers, Olivier Leflaive, on offer. This is top-notch value from the world’s most sought-after wine region.

 

Newton Johnson 2017s

Newton Johnson Family Vineyards – The brilliant 2017s (SA)

The combination of maturing vineyards, exceptional vintage conditions and growing know-how has created the perfect storm. Lately, we have been touting the wonders of the 2017 vintage and highlighting the vintage’s purity, elegance and clarity. It is especially evident in our Pinot Noirs and the latest must-have wines from the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde benchmark – Newton Johnson.

Tim Atkin Report 2018

Tim Atkin SA Special Report 2018 – First 100-point score in the New World (SA)

Tim awarded his first ever 100-point score in the New World to the 2015 Kanonkop Paul Sauer and 99 points to two whites. This year, Tim gives special praise to Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Sémillon, white blends, Bordeaux red blends, Cabernet Franc, Cinsault and Syrah.

Migliarina Parquet

‘A Syrah imbued with a sense of effortless harmony’ – Neal Martin (SA)

The Migliarina Parquet 2016 is a perfect example of Carsten Migliarina’s craftsmanship as it is balanced, fresh and elegant. Since 2002, Carsten has quietly been sticking to his vision of producing food-friendly, refined wines that also offer immense value.
