Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

With a nose of dried black currants,
this SA Cab has layers of pomegranate, fig, black olive, tobacco, cacao. The heavy body of this wine is awakened and lifter by the orange zest acidity.
The lingering tannins structure is firm and gripping. Ripe and ready to drink.

Ekliptika Stellenbosch Cabernet Franc Blend 2016

I enjoyed drinking this unusual, “curveball” wine! It’s a bordeaux blend from South Africa — 50% cab franc, 30% merlot, and 20% cabernet sauvignon. The alcohol seemed high to me so I was thinking more of a GSM from Paso Robles, almost in the SQN style. I struggled to pick up any bell pepper/jalapeño that I usually get from cab franc. — 8 days ago

Post House

Penny Black Red Blend 2015

Vintage 2015 | Multi blend from Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Chenin Blanc. Lovely effort! I gave the wine 4 hours in decanter and afterwards it had a velvety taste. Good concentration, berries in smell. Paired with Côte de Boeuf from the grill, morels and sweet potato. The only point that I don’t like is high alcohol. With the food the wine gets a nice impression of chocolate and cacao. — 11 days ago

You really like these multi-blends, @Peter van den Besselaar I’ve yet to find one that resonates with me.

Stark-Condé

Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Pure dark fruit in the nose, classic Cabernet blend nose while there is also a little amount of Malbec and Petit Verdot. Souplesse ontheven mouth, easy drinking because it’s already so approachable. Clean and elegant Cabernet. 88% CS, 10% PV, 4% CF, 2% Malbec — 16 days ago

Wow. 1972 South Africa would be equivalent to 1960 or 1950 California or Spain. Who was making quality wine back then? Wow

The Foundry

Grenache Blanc 2019

A great experience trying this revered South African Grenache Blanc from The Foundry. There’s chamomile, lemon, stone, white peach, marzipan, gorgeous ripe juicy limey acidity, which all smells very Rhône-y. Very elegant on the palate, full bodied with an almost oily texture, juicy acidity and lovely breadth. Somehow this seemed even more intense on the second night. Excellent stuff. Capacity to age? Not sure as it’s so good now, but willing to try... — 7 days ago
