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. — 22 days ago

Redhill Stellenbosch Pinotage 2016

Выпито в Обнинске после тяжелой поездки в Подольск. Прекрасный пилотаж 2016 года из провинции Сталенбош. Слегка терпкое , вяжущее послевкусие. Вишня , перец. Чувствуются танины. 15’ градусов - хотя сразу и не скажешь. Понравилось. Куплю ящик обязательно. — 17 days ago

Dinner at De Wijnhuis in downtown Stellenbosch. Great food and amazing wine list. Was shocked to see some older wines, very unusual in South Africa. Highly recommend.

Medium mix of ruby and garnet red. Ripe and plush nose with layers of sweet spices, black currants, cassis, plums and a touch of red earthiness. Fully integrated tannins (5.5/10) with a medium body. Good structure on the palate with some cedar, black currants, sweet tobacco and light dustiness. Great acidity with a lingering finish. Drink now.

Beautiful wine with a complex bouquet. Clearly a big step up from a “plain” Sauvignon Blanc. Rich yet crisp. Well done. — 4 days ago
