Both terroir and treatment are immediately evident in the glass. White nectarine, grapefruit, blackcurrant 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. 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 a single wedge of salty pecorino.
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.

The Black Swan 2018 shows notes of lime, gooseberry, ruby grapefruit and fynbos on the nose, while the palate supports the aromas with blackcurrant, lemon zest, passion fruit, yellow apple and fresh fig leaves. A mouth-watering acidity accompanies the full, medium-weighted palate, achieved with extended lees contact in tank. This is a great food wine and will reward cellaring of between 10 – 20 years.

Our 2018 Sphynx Chardonnay displays complex aromas of nectarine, ripe yellow apple, fresh quince, citrus blossom and light degrees of toastiness on the nose. Subtle oak spice is carried through from the nose to the palate. It is complemented by a silky, elegant structure, which in turn is tempered by a zesty acidity and chalky minerality.
The wine is ready to enjoy now, but will reward patience and age gracefully for the next 2- 5 years.

The colour of our Stately wine is black-red with a lighter, garnet red on the rim. The nose entices with sweet cherries, tobacco and vanilla with a floral undertone. The 2017 is a medium bodied wine, showing a silky texture and depth as well as an elegant tannin structure. Floral, plum, strawberry and ground spice notes linger on the palate long after the last sip. This blend is showing beautifully now, and will reward cellaring for up to 5 years.

The 2016 Catharina stands out with its intensity and complexity, evoking the aromas of many of life’s pleasures: biltong and cigar, coffee and dark chocolate, fruitcake and Ceylon tea. Layers of concentrated red and black fruit (raspberry, blackcurrant and black cherry) show on both the nose and the palate, accented with spicy pepper from the Syrah. Herbal notes from the Merlot lend a refreshing finish, while Petit Verdot rounds out the blend, adding structure and depth. Dark fruit and spice, subtle acidity and a strong tannic backbone create the optimal pairing for a traditional beef Wellington. Will bottle age well for 7 to 10 years after bottling.

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.

Our 2018 Semillon is a beautiful pale gold colour. Aromas of honey, stone fruit and ground spice greet you upon first inspection. Quince, persimmon 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.
