Fryer's Cove

Fryer's Cove

Bamboes Bay, South Africa

On the outskirts of Strandfontein, a peaceful village on the Atlantic coast 300 kilometres north of Cape Town, lies a lonely 6 hectare vineyard just 800 metres from the Atlantic Ocean.

How it came to be there is a remarkable story. Viticulturist Jan "Ponk" van Zyl knew this area from his experience at the nearby...

Piekenierskloof, Stonedance, Granite White, Swartland, 2020

"Notably friendly and welcoming with sufficient acidity and a great retro label. Though only very vaguely reminiscent of the classic old-vine Chenins of Swartland (which are, admittedly, very much more expensive)."  15.5/20. Jancis Robinson, May 2021
Look at this – a Swartland Chenin blend for less than 10 pounds a bottle!  Stonedance is a subsidiary label of Piekenierskloof and they have just launched this unoaked white, from 85% Chenin Blanc with 10% Viognier and 5%...

Piekenierskloof

South Africa

For years I had been hearing about Piekenierskloof – not as a wine producer but as a source of grapes for numerous other winemakers, young and old.

I didn’t realise that Piekenierskloof wasn’t just a ward (the smallest geographical unit in the South African regional classification) but one large estate, formerly a...

Jancis Robinson

We get super excited when Jancis Robinson (or one of her team) write about our wine!

Voted the world's most influential wine critic in polls in the US, France and internationally in 2018, Jancis views herself as a wine writer rather than a wine critic.

She writes daily for JancisRobinson.com and weekly for the Financial Times. She is founder-editor of The Oxford Companion...

Vriesenhof, Limited Release Red Blend, 2018

Vriesenhof only occasionally releases this wine, made with some components left out of the final selection of their top Bordeaux-style red, Kallista. It’s a gutsy blend of Merlot, Cabernets Franc and Sauvignon and some Petit Verdot, at a nice stage of evolution, with hints of violets, leather and spice over raspberries and blackberries. Plenty of flesh and grip for keeping. Perfumed aromatics. Absolutely in the Bordeaux idiom but with new world generosity - perfect for those who enjoy a...

Vriesenhof

Stellenbosch, South Africa

To visit Vriesenhof is to spend time with a Cape legend. 

Founder, owner and cellar master is Jan ‘Boland’ Coetzee. Son of a west coast farmer, in the 1970s he was simultaneously both a Springbok under Doc Craven and winemaker at Kanonkop.

In 1980 he bought his own farm on the windy slopes of Paradyskloof on the southern...

Badenhorst, Secateurs Red, Swartland, 2019

Over the years this has changed from being a chunky blend based on Syrah to a more graceful one based on Cinsault (backed by Grenache and Shiraz), just rounded by time in large, old oak vats. The Cinsault makes this so easy drinking, with pretty red fruit backed by savoury and spice notes. Adi says "we’ve turned the Red Blend a bit upside down…Why? Because Cinsault is a fabulous grape and always a pleasure to drink". Now-2022
After many years as the chief winemaker at...

Badenhorst Family Wines

Swartland, South Africa

We met Adi Badenhorst when he was making great wines at Rustenberg, and we have been shipping bottles from the family-owned vineyards at Kalmoesfontein farm on the Paardeberg for so many years that we still remember the days of bats nesting in the bedrooms and the resident Cape Cobra that lived behind one of the fermentation tanks!

The farm is now a...

Piekenierskloof, Cinsault, 2020

From vines planted in 1976; half aged in tank and half in old oak. Like all the best Cinsault, this exudes that lovely perfume composed of floral notes and ripe berries. Velvety, showing vivid strawberry fruit, bright and not in the least jammy. Juicy, persistent, with a little tannin; this combines the best of sunny new world fruit with old world refinement. Now-2024How we came to work with Piekenierskloof: For years I had been hearing about Piekenierskloof - not as a wine producer but as a...

Koelfontein Chardonnay, Ceres, 2019

From a block planted in 1987, and about 1/3 matured in new barrels, 2/3 second fill. Seductive butter and citrus aromas. Lime and melon, well-knit, with dairy and nutty accents. Fresh finish. Delivers a lot for the price. Now-2023I discovered the Koelfontein Chardonnay a few 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...

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...

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.
