Beeslaar Stellenbosch Pinotage 2013

94 Our Score
(12/2016) Wine writer Jamie Goode calls this wine the "Grand Cru Burgundy" of Pinotage. It is, without a doubt, the greatest Pinotage we've ever had. Before you say, "So what," do yourself a favor and try a bottle. Only 400 cases were produced - talk about limited production! A very deep purple ruby color is followed by a beautiful and intensley flavorful nose with complex notes of smoke, coffee and blackberry. This is only the second vintage from Beeslaar and we are sure the press will get on these wines soon, so don't wait!

Glenelly "Lady May" Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

90 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
91 Wine Spectator
(2014) "Solidly built, with cassis bush, blackberry and fig fruit flavors rolled up with charcoal and bittersweet cocoa notes. The rugged tannins are integrated through the finish, lending this a muscular feel. A buried iron accent should emerge with some cellaring. Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2019. 250 cases imported."

Kershaw "Clonal Selection" Elgin Chardonnay 2014

(5/2017) Using Dijon clones 76, 96 and 95, Master of Wine Richard Kershaw crafts this beauty in South Africa's Elgin Valley, where the cool climate is quite similar to that of southern Burgundy. Aged for 10 months in a combination of new, second and third year French oak barrels, with no malolactic fermentation, it leads off with powerful tropical fruit aromas along with a good dose of minerality. Juicy flavors of pear and apple dominate on the palate, where the texture lets you know you are drinking a special bottle of Chardonnay. Though it is influenced by Burgundy, the power is all South Africa - and that's a good thing. The finish is long and clean.

Mullineux Swartland Syrah 2014

92+ Our Score
94 Wine Review Online
(12/2016) "This ripe selection conveys a superb sense of balance and refinement, with forward aromas and flavors of black cherry and brambly berry framed by notes of wood spice, mocha and pressed violet. Velvety in feel, the texture is plush and seductive, with fine yet structured tannins and ample acidity to keep the palate fresh through the close. It's certainly delicious now, but this should age well through 2022."

Mullineux "Old Vine" Swartland White 2014

Primarily Chenin Blanc, with Clairette, Viognier and Semillon, this stuff is delicious!

93 Wine Advocate
(11/2015) "The 2014 Old Vine White is just a peach of a wine. It is fairly innocuous at first, saunters around for bit, minding its own business. Perhaps your attention is lowered. Then it evolves these wonderful aromas of almond, beeswax and just a hint of creme brulée. The palate is very well balanced with fine acidity, perhaps not quite as complex as the nose at full flight, but it delivers impressive, almost disarming persistence on the ginger-tinged finish. You will polish off a bottle quicker than you wish."

Mullineux "Kloof Street" Swartland Mourvedre 2012

91 Our Score
(12/2016) A 100% Mourvedre from South Africa? Yep. This is our first ever such wine, and we're guessing it is yours too. Tasting like a young Bandol, with savory flavors of meat, smoke and coffee, this dark fruited red wine has a ton of character. Hard to believe its under $20! Try this beauty with lamb or grilled sausages.

Paul Cluver Elgin Chardonnay 2013

92 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
91 Wine Advocate
(10/2014) "Enormous, beautiful estate - tick. Talented winemaker - tick. Great quality wines - tick. Unbeatable value - tick. Wild leopards roaming at night - tick. Paul Cluver really is doing everything right. The 2013 Chardonnay comes from the estate's 15.32 hectares of vine planted between 1987 and 2004 on Bookveld shale. Picked March 1-19, it is fermented in French oak barrels of which 20% is new, with reduced batonnage compared to previous years as Andries wanted to avoid too much creaminess in the wine, especially because there was slightly more malolactic fermentation. It has a typically gorgeous bouquet with touches of lemon curd, patisserie, apricot blossom and shaved almond. The definition is superb. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity: touches of mango and lemon peel on the entry with more exotic notes such as passion fruit and pineapple coming at the finish. Perennially one of my favorite Chardonnays from South Africa, this is no different. Drink 2015-2020."

Buitenverwachting "Bayten" Constantia Chardonnay 2015

92 Wine Spectator
(10/24/2016) "Lovely, with singed hazelnut and warm butter notes that glide along, matched by fresh Jonagold apple, quince and white peach flavors. Offers a honeysuckle-gilded finish, with a toasty hint lingering. Chardonnay fans will love this. Drink now through 2019. 217 cases imported."

De Wetshof "Limestone Hill" Robertson Valley Chardonnay 2016

(12/15/2016) "A fresh white, with a quinine edge giving the core of green fig, yellow apple and white peach flavors extra zip through the floral-edged finish. Drink now through 2018."

De Wetshof "Limestone Hill" Robertson Valley Chardonnay 2015

An unoaked South African Chardonnay that displays way more finesse than you'd ever expect for the price.
90 Our Score
91 Wine Advocate
(11/2015) "The 2015 Limestone Hill Chardonnay comes from seven- to 21-year-old vines cropped between five and eight tons per hectares. This unwooded Chardonnay has a pretty nose with apricot blossom, slate and almond-tinged bouquet that gently opens in the glass. The palate is fresh and poised with a fine bead of acidity, tensile with a focused dried apricot and lemon curd finish. This is an excellent Chardonnay from De Wetshof and at this price, you cannot go wrong. Drink 2016-2026."
