Schist Swartland Syrah 2016

W&S Top 100. Always enjoy exploring wines from South Africa. We all know it is difficult to keep up with opening bottles on a regular basis. South Africa is a place I want to drink more from, but man oh man, the line is long. — 8 days ago

The Field Blend White Jonkershoek Valley Roussanne Blend 2017

Picked some winners to take home this weekend! Another fantastically good white, full of complexity and citrusy goodness - this time coming from South Africa. Great glass to sip slowly and enjoy as it has a nice chard meets Chablis meets a viognier...closing down with a crisp finish. This is a great blend and also looking forward to taking more of this home! — a day ago

Honeybunch Reserve Chenin Blanc 2017

9.2

My first Chenin from South Africa, and my first time with this producer. Smells of baked apple and beeswax with a touch of honeysuckle aromatics and rich lemon oil. It’s viscous yet acidic. Bold. Touch of honeycomb sweetness with white peach, tart stone fruits and Granny Smith apple crisps notes on the palate. Delicious! Thanks to my buddy @David L for this! On the hunt to get more! — 4 days ago

Welbedacht Wine Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

9.3

Dinner at De Wijnhuis in downtown Stellenbosch. Great food and amazing wine list. Was shocked to see some older wines, very unusual in South Africa. Highly recommend.

Medium mix of ruby and garnet red. Ripe and plush nose with layers of sweet spices, black currants, cassis, plums and a touch of red earthiness. Fully integrated tannins (5.5/10) with a medium body. Good structure on the palate with some cedar, black currants, sweet tobacco and light dustiness. Great acidity with a lingering finish. Drink now.

de Trafford

Elevation 393 Red Blend 2007

This Stellenbosch Cabernet blend gets its name from being 393 metres above sea level. Deep Ruby in colour. Aromas of coal dust, liquorice, Tomato Bush, Capsicum and stalky green Notes. On the palate initial impressions were lacking in fruit. More austere than expected. Certainly very different to most Napa Valley Cabernets that I’ve had. Medium bodied. I bought this wine in 2012 at the cellar door and it was quite the trek to drive to de Trafford over many dirt roads. One of the 1001 wines. — a month ago

Viñedo de los Vientos

Atlàntida Tannat 2015

Inky and dark. Needs at least an hour to open up. Rich black fruit, chocolate, mocha, perhaps subtle vegetal note. Grippy but not overwhelmingly tannic. Good structure with high acid. Very good now and probably for at least a few years. — 24 days ago

Treinspoor Swartland Tinta Barocca 2014

The Sadie wines are treasures. Eben Sadie makes wine in the ways I’d make wine. Treinspoor is something unique. I’d be shocked if anyone could call the grape blind though it makes sense after you think about it. Tinta Barocca is usually made for Port and you can draw the link to prune, plumb, raisins, spruce, and oak. Bone dry, fleshy tannins. — 19 days ago
