Chapoutier de Bila Haut

Chapoutier’s Rousillon wines: ‘A no-brainer purchase’ (FR)

We’re offering the Les Vignes de Bila-Haut Blanc and Rouge for R150 per bottle with free delivery on 6 bottles or more. In fact, the price has remained unchanged for the last 3 years! We also have Chapoutier’s popular Occultum Lapidem wines, through to his 100-point Ermitage Le Pavillon.

Avondale Qvevri

Exclusive pre-release of the 2017 Gabriëlskloof Landscape Series reds (SA)

Possibly surpassing the great 2015 vintage, 2017 sees the release of a trio of Gabriëlskloof wines set to redefine the benchmarks in Botriver, including one of the finest Cabernet Francs in SA and a pair of highly-rated, terroir-specific Syrahs.

David & Nadia

David & Nadia’s emphatic trio of single-vineyard Chenins blow us away (SA)

These are some of the finest white wines we’ve tasted this year. Flying somewhat under the radar, the David & Nadia single-vineyard releases are right up there with the very best Chenins produced in SA.

Bouchon Pais Savaje

Wine that grows on trees – Bouchon País Savaje 2017 (CL)

The País variety has one of the longest vinicultural histories in Chile and, until recently, was the country’s most-planted variety. Wines are often said to be unique but, harvested from treetops in the wild, this is the real deal!

Esprit de Pavie

Esprit de Pavie 2010 (FR)

One of the most notable changes in Bordeaux is the addition of a second wine to almost every château’s portfolio. Buying seconds from top châteaux, in a great vintage, means slightly earlier drinking and great value.

Numanthia

Numanthia – Our favourite modern red (ES)

While 2016 and 2018 will eventually vie for the title, 2010 is broadly viewed as the greatest modern-day Bordeaux vintage. We have unearthed another small parcel of Esprit de Pavie 2010 which replaced Aromes de Pavie as the second wine of St-Émilion First Growth Château Pavie.

Sadie Family Wines

Sadie Family icons – Columella and Palladius 2017 (SA)

By now the Sadie Family wines need no introduction. They are cutting-edge examples of our most characterful wines that revolutionised the South African landscape and inspired a whole generation of winemakers.

Swerwer Red 2018

Swerwer Red 2018 – An impressive 95-pointer (SA)

Jasper Wickens, previously the assistant winemaker at Badenhorst Family Wines, has built up a following in a very short time – and for good reason. The 2018 Swerwer Red is a unique blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Tinta Barocca.

Moulin Touchais

Moulin Touchais from 1968 – Living Loire legends (FR)

One of the world’s largest and oldest wine stocks can be found at Moulin Touchais, established in 1787, on the banks of the Layon River in the Loire Valley. The estate is renowned for a sweet Chenin aged for a minimum of 10 years in their seemingly endless cellars.

Strauss & Co

Strauss & Co fine wine week – Cape Town (SA)

Following the successful June auction in Johannesburg, the larger Cape Town Strauss & Co Fine Wine Auction at The Westin on Saturday, 14 September will include iconic international wines and rare vintages of SA’s finest wines.

Raats Cabernet Franc

Raats Jasper Red Blend 2017 – A mini MR De Compostella (SA)

Bruwer Raats has had particular success with Cabernet Franc in SA and the recent Winemag blind tastings attest to this. The great value offered by both Cabernet Franc-led 2017 ‘second’ wines is extraordinary and even Bruwer regards them as superior to his 2015s.

Arbois Trousseau

Put Trosseau on your radar (FR)

Also known as Bastardo, Trousseau is an ancient variety that leads the wine renaissance in the Jura region of France. Similar to its sister grape Poulsard, it offers Pinot Noir-like aromatics, red fruit and delicious savouriness.
