Arabella

Western Cape Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Ruby color. Medium plus tears. Cherry, red fruit, and black currants on the nose. Cherry, tomato, pepper, leather, tobacco on the palate. Lovely and funky. — 3 days ago

9.1

Man I love a Cab-Syrah blend... The nose is richly stewy and spicy like a black molé that’s been simmering for days. On the palate, subtle herbaceous and sour cranberry tones from the Cabernet dance atop bloody, leathery notes from the Syrah, almost as if the two grapes are aging at different rates in the bottle. I don’t mean to say that the wine is disjointed, as it is not only complex but also fairly harmonious for such a big bruiser. Probably a few years past its peak, but still a ton of fun - a really well made wine. — 9 days ago

Could not agree more on a Cab Syrah blend!

Secateurs Red Rhône Blend 2011

South African Rhône Style Blend. (A hefty amount of Cinsault and just a touch of Pinotage is added). Classic Rhône barnyard funk on the nose along with pepper spice and smoke. Ripe current and strawberry fruit on the pallet. Outstanding quality for the price. So well made and extremely versatile. Drink young or let it age a bit. (Like I did with this one). Great with food. — 13 days ago

Le Riche

Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

for me it has its own style of both relatively sharp acidity & slightly faded fruitfulness, like Grand Reserva. it seems it needs more time like at least 3-5yrs for matured pleasant cedar and forest like aromas.


PRODUCTION
Fruit is sourced from a variety of sites ranging from the sandy gravel soils of the Firgrove and Raithby ward to sandy/loamy granite soils of the Jonkershoek ward. In essence, it is a blend of Stellenbosch Cabernets showing the variety of terroirs to be found, all harvested by hand at optimal ripeness. Five days fermentation in open concrete tanks with temperature control and regular manual plunging and pump-overs. The malolactic fermentation was carried out in lined concrete tanks after which the wine was transferred to 225L French oak barrels (25% new oak) where it was matured for 20 months.
