Topiary Wines Chardonnay 2017

A lovely and almost discrete Chardonnay. Made by Chassagne-Montrachet producer Philippe Colin, it is surprisingly reticent and very well balanced. Lemon, green apple and nectarine on the nose it has very well balanced acidity in the mouth with just a hint of oak to give it depth. A lovely wine. — 6 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! — 2 months ago

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. — 2 months ago

La Colline Vineyard Sémillon 2018

16.5/20 (91/100) Аромат лимонного сока и мякоти зеленого яблока с легкой редуктивной нотой, напоминающей каучук. Довольно тельное с высокой кислотностью. Насыщенный вкус и тёплое продолжительное послевкусие. Этому вину нужно некоторое время выдержки чтобы достичь комплексности в аромате, потенциал явно есть. — a month ago
