  • STEENBERG MERLOT 2019

    Wine Club price R177.65 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 2019 Merlot is a quintessential cool-climate expression of the cultivar: elegant with soft red fruit and characteristic notes of vanilla, tobacco, and cinnamon with a lively edge. The nose offers sour cherry, dried sage and plum, while the smooth 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.

  • STEENBERG BARREL FERMENTED SAUVIGNON BLANC 2022

    Wine Club price R140.00 p/b

    Previously known as Rattlesnake Sauvignon Blanc.

    DECEMBER WINE CLUB PROMOTION. WAS R175. NOW R140.

    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 golden hay, elderflower, white peach and greengage 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 quince, nasturtium and lime. 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.

  • STEENBERG THE BLACK SWAN SAUVIGNON BLANC 2021

    Wine Club price R216.75 p/b

    5 Stars – Platter’s Wine Guide 2023 

    The Black Swan Sauvignon Blanc 2021 is a pure expression of the Steenberg terroir and shows notes of lime zest, white blossom, elderflower and persimmon on the nose, while the palate supports the aromas with fresh grapefruit and subtle hints of nectarine 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.

  • STEENBERG FIVE LIVES RED BLEND 2020

    Wine Club price R143.65 p/b

    Brand new release!

    62% MERLOT

    22% CABERNET SAUVIGNON

    16% MALBEC

    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.

  • STEENBERG LADY R CAP CLASSIQUE 2017

    Wine Club Price R442.00 p/b

    Our 2017 Lady R has a pale copper hue. Aromatically, this wine shows hints of red apple skin, desiccated coconut, raspberry pie, almond paste, citrus biscuits and savoury dried herbs. The creaminess on the palate is complemented by the subtle and refreshing acidity of the wine. There’s a salinity that carries through on the palate alongside restrained pear and cinnamon spiciness. Lady R’s effervescence shows finesse with elegantly fine bubbles that contribute to the overall texture of the wine. It is seriously structured and shows elegance and beautiful ageing ability.

    Pinot Noir – 70%

    Chardonnay – 30%
