Johanna Brandt Chenin Blanc 2017

Good fragrant white flowers. Like a saveniere with acid and minerality. Good lies and nutty almond like characteristics. Love this. — an hour ago

Fermented in Clay Chenin Blanc 2020

Holy Moses have mercy, cocentrated, near opulent fruit of yellow apples, mango, honey, beeswax with a fistful of roasted hazelnuts and a back beat of wet stones.
Dry palate but with a viscous and almost redundant moutfeel that is balanced and kept in check by a high acidity and a wet stone minerality through a long finish.

One Man Band Elgin Red Blend 2015

Unexpected. Fruity up front and then super smooth and easy to drink with moderate tannins. Could drink all night without a headache in the morning? We shall see.. — 2 months ago

Walker Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Pale lemon with aromas of ripe stone and tropical fruits with citrus and floral notes. On the palate fresh fruit flavors of grapefruit, pineapple, and melon with lemon citrus rind wrapped in lively acidity, medium+ length ending with fruit and citrus texture. Nice! — 2 months ago

Hemel-En-Aarde Valley Pinot Noir 2020

Definitely young and not ready yet. Sophisticated bouquet full of forest floor, leather, spices, wild strawberry and red plum. Juicy, well balanced, but harsh and not as structured as it can be. Shame, but I was risking by taking such a young bottle. — 2 months ago

Low Profile Red Blend 2018

Didn’t take notes at the time, but this was an interesting blend of Syrah (49%) with Touriga Nacional, Trincadeira, Cabernet Sauvignon and Mourvèdre that was dark and brambly with notes of coffee and Turkish delight. Tim Atkin’s likening of this to a Crozes Hermitage / Dao hybrid is an apt take. — a month ago
