Walker Vine Hill Syrah 2005

2005 Vintage.14.8% Alcohol. Need to open with an Ah So type opener, not a corkscrew as the corks have become brittle over time. Thank goodness for the thick bright blue wax seal as it likely saved this bottle from being corked. — 5 days ago

Conservation Coast Chardonnay 2016

At first felt a little flabby and rustic. It grew on me- the pear, pineapple and mustard are so palatable. A big Chardonnay that disappeared quickly. — 2 months ago

Daredevils' Drums Juices Untamed Walked Bay Chardonnay 2014

Auch ein sehr schöner, eigenartiger Wein aus der Walker Bay. Im Vergleich zum Sauvignon Blanc ist noch primäre Frucht spürbar, obwohl 2 Jahre älter. — 2 months ago

Hamilton Russell Vineyards

Hemel-en-Aarde Valley Pinot Noir 2019

Delectable Wine
9.1

The 2019 Pinot Noir is Walker Bay in terms of Wine of Origin rather than Hemel-en-Aarde, since much of their Pinot Noir was rejected after wildfires tainted the fruit. The majority of fruit was sourced from benevolent growers in the valley, and completely destemmed but not crushed, then matured in 24% new French oak. This has an open, quite herbal bouquet of vibrant red and black fruit, underlying sous-bois notes coming through with aeration. The well-balanced palate offers fine-grained tannins and a fine bead of acidity. Open and expressive, with a pinch of black pepper on the cohesive finish. Given the trauma suffered this vintage, this should be considered a success, not least because it still seems to bear the imprimatur of Hamilton Russell. (Neal Martin, Vinous, April 2021)

A great Chardonnay. More fruity compared to a normal Chardonnay. Dry smooth finish. — 2 months ago

Donelan

Walker Vine Hill Syrah 2009

This is a very big wine. Very big. Still a lot of structure and tannin to last. A bit angular and I would say not completely together. Since this is 2009 vintage in 2021, it may never completely harmonize. But huge fruit and a big mouthful of wine if that is your style. Needs a hearty dish. — a month ago

Springfontein

Skins Agleam daredevils' Drums Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Ungewöhnlicher Sauvignon blanc, 11 Monate in drittbelegenen Barriques. Keine sortentypischen Fruchtaromen, aber Reifenoten (16er, getrunken 02 21) und Holznoten. Die Delectable Durchschnittsbewertung von 8.9 ist definitiv zu niedrig. Man muss den Wein mögen, gibt dann auch mehr Punkte. — 2 months ago
