STEENBERG CONSTANTIA NATURAL SWEET 2017 – 375ml

R200.00

Wine Club price R170.00 p/b

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.

In the Cellar

After a very long and cool ripening season the two blocks of Semillon were harvested at the beginning and middle of March 2017 at 23.5°B. The grapes were crushed and de-stemmed with no prolonged skin contact.  The clean juice was racked after settling in stainless steel tanks overnight. Fermentation took place in a combination of 35% new, 40% second and 25% third fill French oak barrels. Only 500L and 600L barrels were used. Post-fermentation, the wine spent a further 9 months in barrel before being racked into a stainless steel tank, where it was lightly fined and stabilised before bottling in December 2017.

  • STEENBERG THE BLACK SWAN SAUVIGNON BLANC 2020

    R240.00

    Wine Club price R204.00 p/b

    The Black Swan Sauvignon Blanc 2020 is a pure expression of the Steenberg terroir and shows notes of nettle, gunflint, elderflower and fynbos on the nose, while the palate supports the aromas with fresh lemon zest and subtle hints of stone fruit and asparagus. 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 NEBBIOLO 2017

    R295.00

    Wine Club price R236.00 p/b

    JULY WINE CLUB PROMOTION. WAS R295. Returning to this wine years after bottling has proven what a great vintage 2017 was for reds in Constantia. On appearance, this wine is ruby red with a typically clear yet bright hue. The bouquet displays primary notes of fresh strawberry coulis, dried cranberry along with some truffle, leather and red cherry. The wine displays the natural tart acidity and grippy tannins of Nebbiolo on the palate, although with a well-rounded and fuller mouth-feel than can sometimes be the case with this varietal. Flavours of 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.

    Our 2019 Semillon is a beautiful pale gold colour. Aromas of lime, capsicum and apricot pith greet you upon first inspection. Quince, citrus and roasted almond 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 floral spice lingers on the palate long after the last drop. This Semillon will continue to evolve in complexity and richness with age.

  • STEENBERG CATHARINA RED BLEND 2017

    R325.00

    Wine Club price R276.25 p/b

    As the first Bordeaux-style blend composition in almost a decade; the 2017 Catharina is bold yet suave, forthright yet subtle, assured and alluring. It displays volumes of cherry and cigar, coffee and vanilla, cranberry compote 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 velvety texture from the Petit Verdot. Light herbal notes from the Merlot lend a refreshing finish, while the new varieties of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon round 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 or rich sauce dishes. Will bottle age well for 7 to 10 years after bottling.

    Merlot: 79%

    Petit Verdot: 12%

    Malbec: 5%

    Cabernet Sauvignon: 4%
