Wine Club price R178.50 p/b
Your same favourite wine with a fresh new look! We have released the new packaging of Steenberg Merlot featuring an elegant, contemporary aesthetic.
Our 2020 Merlot is a quintessential cool-climate expression of the cultivar: elegant with soft dark fruit and characteristic notes of plum, liquorice, and mulberry with a lively edge. The nose offers cedarwood and lavender, while the broody and deep palate reveals raspberry preserve, umami and spicy clove. The velvety texture is enhanced by a refreshing acidity, while well-integrated, fine tannins add structure and a dry finish luring you back to the glass. This medium to full-bodied wine will stand up to rich dishes with strong Mediterranean flavours, such as braised and roast meats, tomato-based stews, mature cheese, and briny olives. Will bottle age well for five to seven years after bottling.

Wine Club price R140.00 p/b
MARCH PROMOTION: WAS R175. NOW R140.
Previously known as Rattlesnake Sauvignon Blanc.
Your same favourite wine with new name and a fresh new look! We have released the new packaging of Steenberg Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc featuring an elegant, contemporary aesthetic.
Both terroir and treatment are immediately evident in the glass. A resonance of dill, capers, greengage, and wet granite marry on both the nose and palate. Acidity and spice form the backbone, dominating on the palate, while a pithy yet creamy texture rounds out the overall mouthfeel. The textured, juicy palate shows citrus zest, vanilla and apricot. A lingering herbaceous and mineral finish completes the experience. This wine will be enhanced by a food pairing such as shellfish, or a Thai curry accented by ginger and lemongrass. Drink now, but wait five to seven years for a truly evolved experience.

MARCH WINE CLUB PROMOTION. WAS R175. NOW R140.
Your same favourite wine with a fresh new look! We have released the new packaging of Steenberg Chardonnay (previously Steenberg Sphynx Chardonnay) featuring an elegant, contemporary aesthetic.

Subtle vanilla oak spice is carried through from the nose to the palate where it meets flavours of quince and candied apple. It is complemented by a bright, clean structure and long finish, which in turn is tempered by a lifting acidity and chalky minerality.
The wine is ready to enjoy now but will reward patience and age gracefully for the next 2- 5 years.

Brand new release!
22% CABERNET SAUVIGNON
The life of Catharina Ras, Steenberg’s remarkable founder, was one of adventure and zeal and can be imagined into a tale of FIVE chapters with each chapter offering Catharina a series of seemingly insurmountable challenges.
These FIVE chapters illustrate the FIVE LIVES of Catharina and how she was able to harness her courage, adapt and be resilient through each new challenge and each new life.
With Steenberg Five Lives Red Blend, we show admiration to Catharina’s life-long resilience and courage.
The FIVE chapters are narrated on a series of different back labels. Collect them all to discover the story.
Steenberg Five Lives expresses an intense dark red hue with a lighter, garnet red on the rim. The nose displays prominently with blackcurrant cassis and notes of fennel, prune and cinnamon. It is a medium to full-bodied wine, showing a silky texture and depth, as well as an elegant tannin structure. Flavours of smooth blackberry jam lead into star anise and ground spice. The mid palate has a juicy cherry compote fruit profile with the acidity tempering a slight richness. Merlot forms the backbone of this wine with clean, bright fruit which add subtle freshness. The Cabernet Sauvignon brings a formal, earnest profile to the blend and the Malbec rounds it all off with fruit weight. This wine is showing beautifully now and will reward cellaring for up to 5 years.
