Summary
    Anselmo Mendes, Muros Antigos Escolha 2022 – R 170
    ‘The 2022 Muros Antigos Escolha is a blend of 40% Loureiro, 40% Avesso and 20% Alvarinho, unoaked and coming in at 11.9% alcohol. This is a fresh and lively blend that shows great in its youth. It lacks the prestige of some of the other offerings in this report, but that also means you can get a lot for a little. (It's an even better value in Portugal.) It's perky and relatively expressive, and it has the acidic backbone to allow it to age a reasonable time. I wouldn't hold it too long, though, even with the winery's good reputation for aging, as its exuberance is a major part of its appeal today. This will likely be at its best when very young. It drinks great now. 2023-2029’ – Mark Squires, Wine Advocate, 88/100

    Marengo, Dolcetto d'Alba 2022 – R 295
    ‘Ruby red. Fruity with an aftertaste of almonds.’ – Winemaker

    Usana, The Fox Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 – R 240
    ‘Part of the mid-tier “Story Range”. Matured for 20 months in barrel, 18% new. Red and black berries, a definite leafy note as well as cigar box on the nose. Medium bodied with quite shy fruit, fresh acidity and fine tannins, the finish dry. Old-school Stellenbosch “dry red” and oh, so drinkable. Alc: 13%.’ – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 91/100

    Saurwein, Chi Riesling 2023 – R 230
    ‘Always among the best Rieslings in the Cape, Chi uses grapes from two of the best vineyards of the variety in cooler climate Elgin. Flirting with austerity, it's a chiselled, racy, green fig, lime and green apple white with a lovely interplay between acidity and 14.2 grams of sugar. 2023-29’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2023, 93/100

    AA Badenhorst, Caperitif Kaapse Dief NV – R 240

    Niepoort, Ruby Port NV – R 185
    'This fresh, powerful ruby features lots of plush dark plum and sweet cherry flavors, with notes of milk chocolate. The spicy finish is fresh, juicy and balanced.' – Wine Spectator, 89/100
