Stony Brook Vineyards "Ovidius" Franschhoek Tempranillo 2014

A toasty, unique offering that is reminscent of quality Reserva-level Ribera del Duero!
Winemaker's Notes
"Long elevage in first and second-use French Oak. Intense cherry tobacco aromas and dark, ripe black fruit are immediately present on the nose, followed by sweet spice, nutmeg and a touch of oak. There is a definite black cherry character on the palate that rounds off the fine, silky tannins and plush, ripe fruit finish."

Swerwer Western Cape Red Blend 2017

90 Our Score
(2/2019) This non-interventionist wine is crafted from old, low-yielding vineyards planted to Cinsault, Grenache and Tinta Barocca. The wine is 100% whole-cluster, fermentation is spontaneous with the wine brought-up for 12 months in neutral French oak. Despite the hot climate origins, this wine is decidedly energetic. Delicate floral notes lift a compact, cherry-fruited palate with good grit and structure from the unique Portuguese variety. A different kind of barbecue wine that has a wide swath of appeal!

Van Loggerenberg "Breton" Stellenbosch Cabernet Franc 2017

New low price! Original Vin Chicago retail - $27.99
92 Our Score
92 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(8/2018) "The 2017 Breton (whose name is inspired by the Loire) comes from two vineyards in the Polkerdrei (100% whole-bunch-fermented) and from the foothills of the Helderberg, matured in third-fill oak barrels. It has a fresh, vibrant bouquet that really articulates the Cabernet Franc in a Chinon style. The palate is medium-bodied with dry tannin and a little reserved and austere at first, opening with classic bell-pepper-tinged Cabernet Franc fruit and closing with a touch of cracked black pepper on the finish. Excellent."

Van Loggerenberg "Geronimo" Stellenbosch Cinsault 2017

91 Vinous, Neal Martin
91+ Our Score
(10/2018) Another new South African find, this time from an exciting producer in the Stellenbosch region. Alive with great energy and freshness, this 100% whole cluster Cinsault reminds us of a wine from one of Kermit Lynch's natural growers in the Languedoc. Red fruit flavors, floral notes and pepper intermingle beautifully. This medium-bodied wine has the capability of drinking well for days after opening. Young Lukas Van Loggerenberg is bottling some seriously distinctive wines, and his "Geronimo" is delightful.

Creation Walker Bay Reserve Chardonnay 2016

92 Wine Advocate
(4/28/2017) "The 2016 Reserve Chardonnay is a barrel selection made by winemaker JC Meyer, looking for more mineral expression of the grape variety via a vineyard selection and then taking the free run juice from the press. It has a refined bouquet with flecks of white chocolate and praline infusing the citrus fruit, well defined and full of energy. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry with a pleasant nuttiness in the background, quite tensile with good depth and grip on the finish, tangy orange peel on the aftertaste."

BLANKbottle "Manon des Sources" Elgin White Blend 2010

91+ Our Score
(4/2019) This totally unique white comes from a small vineyard owned by an acquaintance of Pieter Walser, the mad genius behind BLANKbottle. As part of the sourcing contract, Peter produces a few barrels of wine each year for the vineyard owner's personal consumption. Turns out that two barrels per year is too much for the owner to consume and the vintages began to back up. Pieter bought some back, and we are thrilled to have been able to get our hands on a few cases of this beautifully aged 2010 vintage! A blend of primarily Riesling with smatterings of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, it was whole bunch pressed and then aged for a year in neutral French oak. How has this nine year old wine aged? AMAZINGLY! Opening with a laserlike brightness, it is fresh and elemental with incredible length that plays out on the palate with a toasty, pastry-like element. The alcohol level is a powerful 15.5%, though you'd never guess it was that high. With aeration, riper tropical fruit and exotic, waxy macademia nut richness emerges. This will be an exciting, singular experience for our favorite wine geeks. Not to be missed!

BLANKbottle "The Bomb" Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon NV

Lowest price in the world for decadent Cabernet from Pieter Walser!
91 Our Score
(3/2019) "The Bomb" is a hedonist's delight with a purity of fruit and an absence of makeup that you've come to expect from BLANKBottle. A totally unique offering from Pieter, yet one that commands the attention of the indulgent. Smoky black plum, fig jam and cassis are radiant with lifting eucalyptus and mint that are a staple of the source. Because of the purity and dark fruit profile, this wine will crossover to lovers of warm climate Syrah. Many wines that shoot for this type of target lose track of the beauty of fruit. This wine is at once full-throttle and still feels fresh and natural. Treat yourself! The price of admission here should be well north of $30, and don't overthink it - pop it and pour tonight with barbecue, or all by itself!

BLANKbottle "Orbitofrontal Cortex" Western Cape White Blend 2016

Part mad science experiment and part renegade winemaking! This unique blend is unlike anything else out there!
Winemaker's Notes
"ORBITOFRONTAL CORTEX 2016 a white blend driven by a combination of Swartland Clairette blanche and Verdelho with bits of Palomino, Chenin blanc and Grenache blanc - the best white blend from my cellar according to my conscious mind, named after the scientific name for the part of your brain where conscious decisions are made - Inspired by LIMBIC 2015 (a wine from my subconscious)."

Creation Walker Bay Pinot Noir 2017

89 Our Score
(4/2019) Soucred from the cool climate vineyards of Walker Bay, this solid Pinot Noir from Creation wines shows great balance and freshness. Clean red fruit flavors of cherry, strawberry and raspberry are concentrated and juicy. Subtle spice tones from 10 months oak aging, 25% in new barrel, add complexity. We secured the last few cases on close out and we're passing the savings along to you!

Buitenverwachting "Bayten" Constantia Chardonnay 2017

91 Vinous, Neal Martin
(8/2018) "The 2017 Chardonnay is 20% pressed on the lees straight into barrel and matured for 10 months in French barriques, 10% new, 40% second-fill and 40% third-fill. It has a very Chablis-like bouquet of apple blossom, linseed and a light leesy component. The crisp, taut palate is fresh in the mouth and well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, and the finish delivers just the right amount of salinity. This is a well-crafted Chardonnay from Constantia. Drinking window: 2019 - 2028."
