Vinum Africa 2011 – Chenin Blanc
The palate unfolds layers of fresh lime and gentle spices, underscored by an intensity of fruit which persists on the palate and finishes with a mineral resonance. 100% Chenin, color pale straw yellow.
Quando – Sauvignon Blanc
A real crowd pleaser with its light green color and exotic forthcoming frangipani flower, passionfruit and white peach on the nose. Flinty mineral notes on the pallet follow through with a crisp acidity. Delicious juicy green fruit flavors rounds it off elegantly.
Balandran les Mugues Costières de Nîmes, 2014 – Rosé
This grenache rosé from the Southern Rhone is a sophisticated wine with an iron-like mineral quality. It shows aromas and flavors of wild strawberry, raspberry, citrus blossom and rose petals. A crunchy texture and thirst quenching, mouth watering acidity.
Secateurs – Rosé
The Grenache vines were planted in 1951 and the Cinsault in 1957, becoming some of the oldest vines in the country. The aromas are complex red fruits, spice, rose water, currants and the palate is generous and textured with a long finish.
State of Art – Riesling
The wine opens with wonderful aromas of jasmine, lychee, nectarine, and rose petals. These characters continue on the palate, where we find more stone fruit, papaya, lemon peel, and beautiful floral notes in perfect balance with the acid and sugars. The wine is off-dry in style. A top-tier California riesling.
