1 Jordan Sauvignon Blanc 2016, Stellenbosch
Jordan Wine Estate is situated in Stellenbosch Kloof and has a maritime influence from False Bay. This wine is picked from 34-yearold vines and is completely unwooded. The nose shows hints of dried grass and gooseberries. On the palate it reflects the nose and lingers with some delightful river pebble notes which adds to the complexity of this wine.
2 Louisvale Unwooded Chardonnay 2016, Coastal Region
The focus of this Stellenbosch wine farm is on Chardonnay. This unwooded wine is very fruit driven with notes of white fleshed peaches and loquat on the nose. The palate is uncomplicated with soft fruity nuances, making this wine very easy to drink.
3 Cloverfield Chenin Blanc 2017, Robertson
Chenin Blanc is the most widely planted grape variety in South Africa and has played a big part in the history of wine in our country, both as still wine and in brandy production. Cloverfield is owned by the Marais Family who have been producing wine in Robertson since 1945. The wine is unwooded and offers notes of fresh apple and potpourri. Great enjoyed with food or on its own.
4 Dwyka Hills Shiraz 2014, Western Cape
The Dwyka Hills Shiraz was made by Christiaan Groenewald, the winner of the Diners Club Winemaker of the Year award in 2013. This Shiraz has a lot of upfront plum and black current on the nose that leads to an approachable mouthfeel that also has the same predominant primary fruit that the nose suggests.
5 Jordan Black Magic Merlot 2014, Stellenbosch
The soil where these vines are grown is very rich in Black Tourmaline crystals that ancient magicians used for protection. The Jordan Black Magic Merlot has a complex nose with hints of red fruit intertwined with hints of cedar wood. On the palate, the wine crescendos with a long, lush, and complex finish.
6 Allée Bleue Starlette Pinotage 2014, Franschhoek
The Starlette wine range from Allée Bleue is positioned as a wine of exceptional quality with the focus on accessibility and value. The nose offers notes of bright red and black fruit, with a hint of cured meat. The wine has an easy mouthfeel that delivers on the fruit that was promised on the nose.
7 Louisvale Dominique 2014, Coastal Region
This wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc and was matured for 12 months in small oak barrels. The nose shows black current, dark cherry, as well as dark chocolate notes. The mouthfeel is elegant with soft integrated tannins. This is a delicious example of how well South Africa can make Bordeaux blended wines.
