    Abyssinian

    “12.5% alcohol. A monumental red, all reductive and closed in on itself initially, but which opens out beautifully. It’s juicy, bright, grippy and dense with a peppery, tannic Mourvedre character and fresh black fruits. Grippy and firm with raspberry and black cherry, as well as plums and some damson bitterness. Complex and taut. 94/100” Jamie Goode

    The nose shows red cherry, wild strawberry and an attractive stalky character. Light bodied with pure fruit, bright acidity and a gently savoury finish. Super-tasty. Winemag.co.za
  • coming_soon_bottle
    A complex nose of citrus, apple, peach and apricot as well as hay and spice plus a not unpleasant note of reduction. Extremely flavourful on the palate. Not too lean or too thick in texture and possessing lovely freshness –a real succulence upfront before a nice pithy quality to the finish. A considered wine that immediately takes its place among SA’s most exciting white blends. Winemag.co.za

    “13.5% alcohol. Mourvèdre is added for body and spice, and Viognier for freshness and to enhance the aromatic profile with its subtle floral and dried apricot aromas. The farm co-ferment the three varieties to make a seamless wine and always use second or third fill bigger French oak barrels so that there is very little oak influence on the resulting wine. Full bodied with herbaceous 'veld', spice, pepper, bright red summer fruit and plum flavours. Made to be enjoyed at release, but should only improve with age for up to 8 years. Ideal to be enjoyed on its own in winter or slightly chilled on summer evenings”

    “14% alcohol, it recalls Beaujolias or Côte de Beaune in how perfumed and fruity it is. On the nose, red and black berries plus a light and rather pretty herbal note. It has an abv of 14% so it’s not short of stuffing but there’s also really zippy acidity and just the right amount of tannic grip on the finish. Serve straight from the fridge for something ridiculously drinkable and unpretentious.” Christian Eedes

    Onion skin in colour. Raspberry plus a little spice and earthiness on the nose. A sophisticated palate - good fruit definition, bright acidity and a delicate bubble before a very dry finish. A particularly elegant pink bubbly

    This is taut, pure and linear, with lovely citrus and pear fruit. Fine and expressive with real precision. Zippy and fine with a lovely clean, lean personality, and real finesse.  Jamie Goode

    Ridiculously juicy, this wine just begs to be drunk chilled on a warm summers evening. One of the most fun, totally drinkable wines we’ve ever had!

    “The nose shows plenty of nuance – red and black berries, top notes of fynbos and purple flowers plus spice, earth and olives. The palate meanwhile has striking depth of flavour, fresh acidity and good tannic grip. It’s fleshier and generally more substantial than the 2013”. Christian Eedes
  • wine_swerwer
    A truly word class Chenin Blanc. It’s powerful, conveying the heat of the Swartland. However it displays an elegance that warm climate wines often lack, showing perfect poise and balance.
