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.

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!

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."

Radford Dale "THIRST" Stellenbosch Cinsault 2017

90 Our Score
(8/2018) Radford Dale's "Thirst" line is aptly named. When one's thirst needs to be slaked, this is what you should reach for! This is old bush vine Cinsault from Stellenbosch that undergoes carbonic maceration. This series is supposed to represent place and site and are made naturally. Nothing is added, and nothing taken away, simply juice. This is super fresh and vibrant, with bursting red fruits and just a touch of spiciness to complement the palate. You just want to simply drink this wine! And at 10% ABV, this is one crushable way to take care of your "Thirst!"

Catherine Marshall Elgin Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2017

91 Our Score
(12/2018) Our favorite South African Sauvignon Blanc is now in vintage 2017, and it's just as expressively delicious as past vintages have been. Sourced from sustainably farmed vines in the cool-climate growing region of Elgin, the 2017 gives tropical sub-tones to support the traditional "old world" Sauvignon flavors of lemon, green apple and nuanced green flavors. Lively acidity balances out the generous and long mouthfeel. Friendly enough to enjoy alone, this wine will also pair well with Thai food and crab legs. Delicious!

The Winery of Good Hope Stellenbosch Pinotage 2017

89+ Our Score
(6/2018) It's not often we feature a Pinotage, so we are quite excited to bring you this winner from The Winery of Good Hope. It is sourced from two vineyards, one of which is planted with old bush vines. The wine goes through a partial carbonic fermentation which allows for more fruit and less tannin, resulting in a very clean flavor profile. Look for loads of juicy mixed red berry fruits with a touch of the characteristic Pinotage notes of smoke and leather on the dry finish. If you haven't had a Pinotage in a while (or ever!), this very good example is a must-try!
