Alchemists Guild Best Barrel Destiny Ridge Vineyard Red Blend 2014

Yup the second bottle definitely held up. I didn’t think I was the biggest fan of the Destiny Ridge Syrah, but Jeff has convinced me with this wine. There’s a reason this is the “Best Barrel.” Yum. — 3 years ago

Cape Winemakers Guild Sophia Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2006

Striking fresh ripe black currant at the start, with dryer tobacco notes from the glass, cranberry from the close up and an amazing evolution — 5 years ago

Puligny-Montrachet 2014

@Delectable this is Domaine Christian Cholet-Pelletier Pulgny-Montrachet.

White Burgundy & white cheeses...all in.

Beautiful, round, lush with viscosity. Honey, stone fruits-natural & some dry, apricot dry dominate pineapple flesh, lemon, lime zest, slightly bruised pear, granular minerals, chalk, white spice with hints to white pepper, sea fossils, saline, teasing brown sugar, touch of old woodiness with yellow flowers, greens, jasmine & spring flowers with perfect dripping acidity and a beautifully balanced, smartly polish finish with excellent taste guild and excellent persistence.

Really prefer the 12-13% ABV. This is 13%.

@Delectable Wine this is the 2013 Silverthorn Wines Cape Winemakers Guild Big Dog IV Méthode Cap Classique.

Our first time every at the Cape Winemakers Guild Auction and we will make sure to come back! (Tasting was on 9/28/18).

Second wine at the Friday Auction Tasting for the Cape Winemakers Guild and last sparkling wine. This is a sparkling wine (Methode Cap Classique) made by John Loubser from the Western Cape. Made up of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay as well as aged on the lees for 51 months before 9 more months in bottle and prior to disgorgement. Only 73 cases produced and only 42 being auctioned in 2018.

Light greenish yellow in appearance with tiny bubbles. Mute on the nose with a bit of lemon, light sweet spices, kiwi and limestone. Moderate acidity (7/10) and rich palate. Creamy mouthfeel with layers of spices, green apples, citrus fruits, white flowers and mouth watering minerality. Long and lingering finish.

$$ - Tasted at the Cape Winemakers Auction. Average bid at auction was R4,410.00 ($51.94 a bottle) a case. Highest bid was R6,200.00 ($73.02 a bottle) and lowest bid was R3,000.00 ($35.33 a bottle).
