The Black Swan Sauvignon Blanc 2022 is a pure expression of the Steenberg terroir and shows notes of nasturtium, sugar-snap pea, fresh asparagus and capsicum on the nose, while the palate supports the aromas with fresh lemon and subtle hints of dried apricot and mange tout. A mouth-watering acidity accompanies a full and long finish achieved with extended lees contact in tank. This is a wonderful food wine and will reward cellaring of between 10 – 20 years.

The 2020 Catharina is bold yet suave, forthright yet subtle, assured and alluring. It displays intense and inviting aromas of blackberry and plum, cassis and lavender blossom, vanilla stick and dark chocolate. Layers of concentrated red and black fruit (raspberry, blackcurrant and black cherry) show on both the nose and the palate, accented with a full, supple texture from the Cabernet Sauvignon component. Light herbal notes from the Merlot lend a refreshing finish, while the Malbec rounds out the blend, adding structure and depth.
Dark fruit and spice, lifting acidity and an encompassing tannic finish create the optimal pairing for most red meat (particularly a garlic and rosemary stuffed roast lamb shoulder) or rich saucy dishes. Will bottle age well for 7 to 10 years after bottling.

The nose initially shows a savoury aroma reminiscent of heirloom tomato relish. This is followed by hues of aniseed and dried porcini mushrooms along with some sour cherry, rooibos tea leaf, rose petal and bran. The wine displays the natural tart acidity and grippy tannins of Nebbiolo on the palate, although with a well-rounded and lighter mouth-feel than can sometimes be the case with this varietal. The bright, fresh palate eases off to reveal a classic Nebbiolo varietal character: sour cherry, raspberry and tobacco leaf linger to give the wine brilliant length and persistence.
The wine shows beautiful fruit and floral characters in youth, but will develop well over the next 7 to 10 years and will greatly reward those who resist it’s youthful charm. Pair this wine with a medium-rare springbok fillet with a cranberry or cherry coulis.

Our 2022 Semillon is a beautiful pale gold colour. Aromas of apricot, cinnamon, dried pear and orange blossom greet you upon first inspection. There are also nectarine, dusty road and golden delicious notes. The palate shares much the same fruit profile as the nose though now with distinct custard and vanilla pod characteristics. Poised, weighted fruit concentrates the mid-palate, after which the wine broadens out with a rich, almost waxy texture and bright acidity. A citrus and floral spice lingers on the palate long after the last drop. This Semillon will continue to evolve in complexity and richness with age.

Our 2018 Sauvignon Blanc/ Semillon shows flavours of fresh persimmon, honey and white stone fruit. The focus on the palate is ground spice and fruit richness tempered by a light acidity that forms the wine’s backbone. It is subtle and develops in the glass and shows beautifully now, but will gain complexity with cellaring. The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon with its freshness and fullness is a veritable food wine and pairs beautifully with crayfish, duck and salmon tartare.
