Estate Red Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2015

Callie gave me this bottle, which Joris buys in bulk. Didn’t know what to expect from South Africa. Holy moly! Lush, savory, medium bodied, well-integrated tannins. Greatly exceeded my expectations. Wish I could find more of this. — 12 days ago

Topiary Wines Chardonnay 2017

A lovely and almost discrete Chardonnay. Made by Chassagne-Montrachet producer Philippe Colin, it is surprisingly reticent and very well balanced. Lemon, green apple and nectarine on the nose it has very well balanced acidity in the mouth with just a hint of oak to give it depth. A lovely wine. — 11 days ago
