Signature Wine Pinotage 2019

I have a good story to go with this wine. So my brother is working at the Embassy in Nairobi right now. I sent him a picture of some wines I bought including this one. He sent me a picture back and he had the same wine. Good wine minds think alike!! This wine is excellent! Very smooth, dark fruit, a little earthy at first, 14.5% alcoholic content. Will enjoy by the pool this evening with my book! Cheers! — 7 days ago

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

Ernie Els

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.

Great fruit and flora notes. Slight tart apple finish. Nice for a cheap TJ wine. — 12 days ago

Hemel-en-Aarde Valley Pinot Noir 2019

The color is very pretty. The nose is big and complex, with lots of herbs and forest floor notes. Invites you to keep smelling it. The palate is spicy—pepper and spices. Medium finish. Delicious. I dug this one. — 7 days ago

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. — 14 days ago

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

Tussock Jumper

Western Cape Chenin Blanc 2020

This South African wine has a slightly yellow tint and a nose that is all about the minerals. The smell of lemon zest, apricot and a wet sidewalk all play into the aroma package. The palate shows various kinds of citrus, stone fruit and a rich salinity, not to mention the racy acidity. It's time for shellfish or crustaceans, or any kind of fish, really. — a month ago
