Cape Peninsula

Botanica

Mary Delany Collection Pinot Noir 2017

Medium Ruby with aromas of red berry fruit and herb spice. On the palate flavors of cherry and tart raspberry with pleasant earthy herb notes, wrapped in vivid acidity and nice mouthfeel. Fine grainy tannins, good balance, long finish ending with full fruit character. Nice. Tasting Sample. — 7 days ago

Pillitteri Estates Winery

Reserve Exclamation Cellar Series Cabernet Franc

I purchased this bottle in 2008 while working and Toronto and joy traveling in Niagara! Nice take on one of their first attempts at solid Franc. It’s aged nicely with softened tannins and subdued fruits. Aniseed and ripe fruit drive the nose through a softer matured flavor profile. — 5 days ago

Leaning Post

Niagara Peninsula Merlot 2018

I had the Vin Nature version of this wine, 2018 Twenty Mile Bench.
Quite frankly exceptional, no additives,natural ferment and neutral barrels, unfiltered and unfined. Just a perfect expression of this varietal.

Saluez Le Saboteur Chenin Blanc Blend 2018

An enticing exotic nose with pineapple, mango, a touch of buttery banana and fresh grapefruit, a touch of orange zest + quite a bit of nice matchstick reduction. Intriguing and very inviting.
Very fresh & juicy on the palate, great flow and energy - no flabbiness nor plush - lean & very dry but with pure fruit and great definition plus some nice, interesting edges. Highly drinkable, too and only 12.5% alc.
This is a true delight.

Volubilia

Epicuria Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Wine from Morocco 🇲🇦 , good in term of balance, and value for money. Paid the equivalent of € 15-17. For this price we have a beautiful expression of Cabernet-Sauvignon, « on the fruit » with discreet aging. Persistent finish and a nice overall balance.

Vin du Maroc, haut du panier en matière d’équilibre, et rapport qualité/prix. Payé l’equivalent de 15-17€ en cave. Pour ce prix on a une belle expression du Cabernet-Sauvignon, sur le fruit avec un élevage discret. Finale finement persistante et un bel équilibre général.

Hemel-en-Aarde Valley Chardonnay 2016

Very good Chardonnay with vanilla notes and well-balanced set of flavors. I started drinking this after a Walter Scott Chardonnay which is a much better but more expensive wine, but this wine is really well-made and a great value. There is some buttery flavor but it is mild, bad the fruit really comes through. — 8 days ago
