STEENBERG SAUVIGNON BLANC / SEMILLON RESERVE 2018

R195.00

Wine Club price R165.75 p/b

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.

  • STEENBERG RATTLESNAKE SAUVIGNON BLANC 2019

    R170.00

    Wine Club price R144.50 p/b

    Your same favourite wine with a fresh new look! We have released the new packaging of Steenberg Rattlesnake Sauvignon Blanc featuring an elegant, contemporary aesthetic.

    Both terroir and treatment are immediately evident in the glass. White blossom, elderflower, fresh asparagus 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. The palate shows capsicum, nasturtium and lime. 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 grilled calamari.

    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.

  • 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 SPHYNX CHARDONNAY 2020

    R160.00

    Wine Club price R136.00 p/b

    Our 2020 Sphynx Chardonnay shows upfront and intense aromas of limestone, orange blossom, butterscotch and crème brûlée on the nose. Subtle vanilla oak spice is carried through from the nose to the palate where it meets flavours of pear and candied apple. It is complemented by a silky, elegant structure and creamy texture, which in turn is tempered by a clean acidity and chalky minerality.

    The wine is ready to enjoy now, but will reward patience and age gracefully for the next 2- 5 years.

    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.
