The Black Swan 2018 shows notes of lime zest, lemongrass, white grapefruit and nettle on the nose, while the palate complements the aromas with white peach, spicy green peppercorn, tart granadilla, candied lemon and fresh fig leaves. A nervous acidity accompanies the full, unctuous palate due to extended lees contact in tank. This is a great food wine and will reward cellaring between 10 – 20 years.

2015 was a very mild summer and resulted in quite a special vintage which we can see in the Nebbiolo. Slightly darker in colour than the 2014; the bouquet displays notes of rose petal, dried apricot and fynbos along with notes of leather and cherries. The wine displays the natural tart acidity and grippy tannins of Nebbiolo, accompanied with hints of sour cherries, raspberries and wild strawberry.
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.

The 2016 Catharina showcases an intense ruby red colour in the glass with notes of cedar wood, blackcurrant and smoked meat upon first swirl. Ethereal aromas of bramble, black cherry, black tea, dried violet, fynbos, and star anise come to the forefront. Merlot adds ripe, wild strawberry to the palate while the Syrah provides a subtle spiciness on the back palate and contributes to the savoury, lingering finish. The Petit Verdot adds body and finely structured powdery tannins to the palate. The nervy acidity and minerality keeps the fruit bright and fresh with a cellaring potential of five to ten years.

Our 2017 Semillon is a beautiful white gold colour. Aromas of citrus and pear, sugar snap peas, vanilla pod, zesty tangerine and ripe apricot greet you upon first inspection. Lemon-infused honey
flavours along with white grapefruit complete the sensation on the palate. Poised fruit concentrates
the mid-palate, after which the wine broadens out with a rich, almost waxy texture and bright acidity.
A citrus and vanilla spice lingers on the palate long after the last drop. This Semillon will continue to
evolve in complexity and richness with age.

This dessert wine is delicate and light showing fresh floral aromas and stone fruit blossoms on the nose. The palate has a poised weight and clean acidity to temper the subtle sweetness of dried apricot and candied walnuts. A long, rich finish of citrus and honey completes this Natural Sweet Semillon.
