This is the first Pinot Noir that we have imported directly to the UK and we're delighted that it comes from Matthew van Heerden along with his superb Chardonnay. Like the Chardonnay, only 3 barrels were produced and we've brought just 240 bottles to the UK. Made with fruit from Elgin which is rapidly establishing itself as one of the cooler climates in South Africa this is a delicious, crunchy Pinot that has an enticing savoury edge. Multifaceted and elegant, we're in for a treat as this wine matures.
This Grenache from Carsten Migliarina continues the wave of delightfully elegant Grenache styles now emerging from the Swartland and beyond. There's an exceedingly pretty nose of red fruits, think strawberry and raspberry, with a fleeting floral component. Juicy, fresh and succulent on the palate with just enough tannin to offer some support. Delicious!
Attractive, aromatic nose of cherries, plums and a little clove. Ripe yet elegant flavours with a silky texture, backed up with some succulent oak spice and pepper on the finish. Complex and confident, this is delicious to enjoy now but will age well over the next 5-8 years.
The Kloof Street range is all about freshness, balance and great drinkability. This Southern Rhone style blend combines all these attributes to give a food friendly and approachable wine at a great price. A blend of 83% Syrah, 13% Cinsault, 4% Carignan, 2013 Kloof Street Rouge is sourced from 13 - 43 year old vines.
The Mullineux have been making wine with this fruit since 2004 - it used to go into one of the reds at Tulbagh Mountain Vineyards - and you can see why they rate it so highly. Floral, structured and pepper spicy, with a thrilling core of minerality, this Syrah is effortlessly complex and set for a long life in bottle. Beautifully focused. Drink: 2015-25
