Clairette Blanche Stellenbosch White Blend 2017

Celebrating Father’s Day with my first Clairette Blanche. Beautiful honey golden colour, hazy and unfiltered. Nose is caramelized honey & apples, slightly floral. Well balanced with just enough acidity to keep it interesting. The palate is a bit funky with flavours of quince, baked pineapple and blue cheese. Truly remarkable. Paired with bbq chicken thighs, grilled scallions and arugula salad with strawberries. — 3 days ago

Fusion V Stellenbosch Red Blend 2014

Always trying to spread the love and give a little bit of knowledge about South African wines. We decided to bring a solid Bordeaux Blend to share with some new friends at Hatchet Hall in LA.

Deep and dark ruby red with purple hues. Dark spices on the nose with some gravel, cassis and dark black cherries. Medium plus dry tannins (7.5/10) and medium plus to full bodied. Definitely benefited from the short decant. Layered palate with notes of dark red berries, minerality, and some sweet spices. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2028. (92+)

Reserve Ken Forrester Vineyards Old Vine Chenin Blanc 2017

You guys, the 2017 is bonkers good. Joyously bright acid that slices through full flavors of tart, underripe pineapple, apple, and melon all kissed by a whisper of oak. Talk about over-delivering for the price. — a day ago
