Cape Classics Mixed Case
A mixed case of 3 white and 3 red wines all from the vineyards of the Cape that show not only the classic traits of each grape variety but also of the terroir where the grapes were grown. For us, the wine of the Cape vineyards offer the best of both worlds with the ripeness and fruit flavours of the New World combined with the depth, elegance and finesse of the old world. Each wine has been selected for it's typicity while remaining great fun to drink!
The case contains one bottle each of:
DMZ Chenin Blanc - DeMorgenzon, Stellenbosch
DeMorgenzon DMZ Chenin Blanc is fresh, clean and with tons of bright fruit. Green apple, apricot, peach, hints of honey and floral aromas characterise a bright and upfront nose. The palate is rich with bold fruit flavours that culminate in a lingering aftertaste. Terrific with or without food.
Sauvignon Blanc - Indaba Wines
A real crowd pleaser, this easy drinking Sauvignon Blanc displays appealing citrus and tropical fruit aromas that lead to a fresh, invigorating palate of pineapple, lemon-lime, mango and green fig. Backed by a solid acidity, herbal undertones shine through on the mineral-tinged finish and luscious tropical fruit. With the origin of this wine coming from a spectrum of vineyard areas, great complexity has been achieved.
Glass Collection Chardonnay - Glenelly Wines, Stellenbosch
The Glass Collection Chardonnay from Glenelly has a bright and brilliant colour with a slightly green hue. The wine has complex aromas of citrus, lime zest, marmalade and melon. On the palate, there is a beautiful, rounded, comforting texture with wonderful length, intense fruit complexity and a minerally, oyster shell finish. South African Chablis.
Chocoholic Pinotage - Darling Cellars
This Pinotage is vibrant and packed with some juicy cherry flavours that incorporate more complex nuances such as dark chocolate, plums and vanilla. It is smooth on the palate with loads of soft, sweet fruit. The chocolate notes in the finish really shine through with no trace of sweetness except for the fruit. Fantastic Pinotage!
The Curator Shiraz/Mourvedre - Swartland
The Curator Red Blend simply jumps from the glass displaying exotic red and black fruits with a mouth-filling texture. Known for having impeccable taste and style, Adi Badenhorst has assembled this wonderful blend from a library of wine parcels at his disposal. Distinct, complex and very easy drinking. Sophisticated yet unpretentious, much like Mr. Badenhorst himself...!!
Rustenberg Cabernet Sauvignon - Stellenbosch
Rustenberg Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon shows typical flavour and aroma profiles of dark berries and tobacco with a well-structured and lengthy palate. Although this wine spent 16 months on oak, only 10% of it was new and the result is a fleshiness and a touch of sweet spice rather than vanilla and smoke. It was made in a fruit forward and medium bodied style that is most accessible in its youth, although it will benefit from further bottle age too.
