The 2018 Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc delights with notes of fig leaf, lime blossom, nettle and white grapefruit while maintaining its core minerality from the Steenberg terroir. This cool-climate Sauvignon Blanc has a striking and bright acidity which keeps it vibrant and fresh on the palate and pairs wonderfully with food. All the elements of this wine will enable it to bottle age well over the next 2- 5 years.

Our 2016 Merlot is an excellent expression of the cultivar: rich with juicy red fruit and characteristic herbal highlights of lavender, fennel and anise with a lively eucalyptus edge. The nose offers cherry and redcurrant, while the palate reveals sour cherry, dark chocolate and spicy clove. Velvety texture is enhanced by refreshing acidity, while well-integrated tannins add structure. This fuller-bodied wine will stand up to rich dishes with strong Mediterranean flavours, such as braised and roast meats, tomato-based stews, mature cheeses and briny olives. Will bottle age well for five to seven years after bottling.

Our gracious Steenberg Syrah’s full red colour is a sign of the flavours and aromas that await you in the glass. Violet, nutmeg, boysenberry, and cherry sherbet on the nose transform into a medium-bodied, delicate black fruit and spice driven wine with soft, fine tannins, integrated acidity and a silky texture. The ideal partner to fillet au poivre – in fact all red meats grilled over open flames.

Both terroir and treatment are immediately evident in the glass. White nectarine, grapefruit, blackcurrant and cape gooseberry marry on both the nose and palate. Acidity and spice form the backbone, dominating on the palate, while a creamy texture rounds out the overall mouthfeel. A lingering mineral finish completes the experience.
This wine will be enhanced by a food pairing such as shellfish, a Thai curry accented by ginger and lemon grass, a savoury tart tatin or a single wedge of salty pecorino.
Although beautifully balanced from date of release, this wine is still developing. Drink now, but wait five to seven years for a truly evolved experience.
