Fryer's Cove, Sauvignon Blanc, Bamboes Bay, 2020

From an extraordinary, isolated 6 hectare vineyard on limestone subsoils just 800 metres from the Atlantic Ocean on the outskirts of Strandfontein, a village on the Atlantic coast 300 kilometres north of Cape Town. The micro-climate is unusual: very often the vines here are blanketed in a thick sea-fog, whilst only a few kilometers away inland the sun may be shining and the temperature torrid. This is a remarkably intense and ageworthy SB, a Cape Pouilly-Fumé: gooseberry, lime and...

Blankbottle, Moment of Silence, Wellington, 2020

Moment of Silence (or MoS for short) is always the best value wine in Pieter Walser's eclectic zoo of mad and bad blends. Chenin Blanc from four different sites, plus Grenache Blanc and Viognier, barrel-fermented and aged on the lees for a year. Bold, full-flavoured and concentrated, intensely stone-fruited with a hint of honey and caramelised lemon, cream, nuts and an element of minerality. Now-2024

Domaine des Dieux, Chardonnay, Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge, 2017

At the very top of the valley, cooled by breezes and the cloud attracted to the nearby Babylonstoren peak, the Des Dieux vineyards lie in a perfect spot for Chardonnay. This has become one of our best-loved wines. The 2015 vintage won the VeritasVertex Award for the overall champion wine in South African Veritas wine awards, and the 2017 is equally impressive, albeit perhaps in a subtler, less oak-influenced idiom – and with a moderate 13% too. Delicious cocktail of fruit – ripe melon...

Domaine des Dieux

Hemel-en-Aarde, South Africa

The Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, which translates as Heaven on Earth, rises prettily from just west of Hermanus.

When we first visited in 2003 the wineries, notably Hamilton Russell and Bouchard Finlayson, were all in the lower part of the valley, but more recently plantings at the top of the valley - higher, drier, with warmer...

Chardonnay

Chardonnay is one of the most-widely planted varieties in the world.

Arguably not the most characterful grape, hence its common ageing in oak, yet at its pinnacle in Burgundy it produces some of the greatest (and certainly most expensive) white wines in the world. Look out for unoaked Chardonnay, it can make a pleasant change, and usually goes down very well with all those people who...

Chamonix, Troika, Franschhoek, 2017

51% Cabernet Franc, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% each of Merlot and Petit Verdot: 18 months in barrel, 45% new. Deep tone. Vanilla oak notes over berried fruit. Well-structured but not in the least overdone; blackcurrant core leavened with menthol and dark chocolate hints. Some crunch. Excellent now but keeping potential too. Now-2024
“Serious and structured, it’s very much a cool climate style with graphite, fynbos and red berry fruit and firmish, savoury tannins. Up a point...

Chamonix

Franschhoek, South Africa

Chamonix owns vineyards above the town running from 380 to 600 metres in altitude, planted from 1998.

Under the winemaking since 2001 of the youthful-looking Gottfried Mocke the wines got better and better, and in his latter vintages he steered the style of the wines here away from concentration and power and more towards elegance, finesse and...

Koelfontein, Shiraz, Ceres, 2018

This terrific Shiraz, given 20 months in new French barrels, is spectacular and has garnered a slew of medals in the local wine competions: Veritas and Michelangelo golds and a double gold in the Vitis Vinifera. Youthful purple. Ripe black fruit and coffee aromatics. So bold and vibrant, a gorgeous sweet cassis gush, but also brightened by juicy acidity and backed by plentiful ripe tannins. Very long. Cries out for beef or lamb, grilled or roasted. Now-2025

Ceres

I discovered the Koelfontein Chardonnay a couple of years ago by ordering a delicious bottle on the terrace of The Tulbagh hotel.

I had never heard of it – nor indeed any wine estate in Ceres, which is much better known as a fruit growing centre. The Conradie family, the seventh generation farmers who own Koelfontein, have abundant orchards, but they also own the...

Shiraz / Syrah

Shiraz / Syrah  

Powerful, black-fruited, often aged in oak, syrah/Shiraz comes in varying styles but at the top (such as Hermitage) can be spectacular and very long-lived.

There is no question that Syrah is now the most fashionable red grape for new plantings in many New World countries, especially South Africa and Chile.

Fryer's Cove, Pinot Noir, Bamboes Bay, 2019

From this isolated, calcareous vineyard on the cold Atlantic shore. Attractively early-maturing style, with secondary forest floor notes tingeing the oak and red fruit aromas. Melting, supple, and fragrant, this is a classic and sophisticated Pinot, tasting of heated strawberries with vanilla and cinnamon spice notes. Now-2023

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
