Summary
    Silverthorn, River Dragon NV 2022 – R 225
    'Colombard (from 38 year old vines), ferment in acacia barrels, unusual features in cap classique, realised with house’s usual sophistication. NV well-focused by gentle bead, balanced dosage & subtle input from year on lees. Quiet wild-herb nuance & spice add distinction.' – Platter's Guide, 4*

    La Bastienne, Saint-Émilion 2020 – R 295
    ‘The 2020 La Bastienne retains a slightly exotic bouquet with hints of Medjool dates infusing the black fruit. It is nicely delineated, with the oak neatly enmeshed. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet, pliant tannins, fine acidity, quite smooth with a touch of sour cherry and cedar on the finish. Drink over the next 8-10 years. 2024-2032’ – Neal Martin, Vinous, 87/100

    Chapoutier, Bila-Haut Blanc 2021 – R 185
    'The Chapoutier Bila Haut Blanc 2021 is a classic expression of a Rhône white offering great value. A blend of Grenache Blanc, Roussane, Marsanne and Macabeu, it is vibrant and aromatic. Mineral tinged lemon and lime fruits mingles with spiced peach and orchard for a lingering finish.' – Kenny Nassen, Aug 2021

    Joostenberg Family, Red Blend 2021 – R 155
    '83% Syrah, 13% Mourvèdre and 4% Touriga Nacional. Partial whole-bunch fermentation. Matured in a combination of stainless steel tanks and older oak barrels for nine months. Appealing aromatics of red and black berries, fynbos, lavender, earth and spice while the palate shows succulent fruit, fresh acidity and crunchy tannins – so damn likeable. Alc: 13.5%.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 92/100

    Hartenberg, Riesling 2021 – R 180
    ‘A Riesling that always smells sweeter than it is, this stylish iteration of the variety uses two different clones and spends nine months on its lees. Showing the coolness of the 2021 vintage, it’s a racy, chiselled, dry style with lime, tangerine and a faint whiff of kerosene. 2023-26’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2023, 92/100

    Niepoort, White Rabbit Dry White Port NV – R 150
    ‘Nutty, with aroma of dried grasses. Smells like a skin-fermented white, with notes of apricot, too. Firmly tannic, chewy and so much texture that the sweetness is further undermined. Complex, chewy, fresh in an oxidative style. Long, nutty aftertaste. 2023-2028’ – Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17/20
