The 2017 Rattlesnake has a pale white-gold colour with light green nuances. Aromatically, the Rattlesnake displays notes of lime and frangipani blossoms, white peach, fresh ginger, cape gooseberry and melon on the nose. On the palate, this wine is vibrant with a fresh and zesty acidity that gives structure and longevity along with the fruit. With time, the lingering richness of the wine will come to the forefront and will continue to evolve over the next 7 years.

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.

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.

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.
