Paarl Syrah 2018

My word, what a disarming wine! Ready from the get-go, you can spend a long time with just your nose in the glass before wanting to take a sip of this. It has the freshest, coolest of dark brambly blue fruits, with smoked meat, graphite, lavender (garrigue, almost), a herbal note and myriad spices adding complexity. The palate is gorgeous, absolutely radiant and chock full of flavour without being over-extracted - and only medium weight, really, at 14 degrees. The finish is positively smoky. Wonderful stuff. This is a generous, sensuous and pure Syrah that exceeded my expectations. My first wine from Boekenhoutskloof - and certainly not my last. — a month ago

The Chocolate Block Cinsault Blend 2020

Wine was deep ruby in appearance. On the nose, there was a medium intensity of red fruit such as raspberry and strawberry, with notes of cocoa. The palate matched the aromas, but with a little bit of spice, at a pronounced intensity. Body is medium, acidity is high, tannin is medium and grippy, alcohol is medium. Overall, a very balanced wine with a long finish that starts of intense, but smooth out as time goes on. The wine is complex and balanced. overall an outstanding wine! — 2 months ago



Medium yellow lemon colour , still pretty young . Quite waxy and grassy at first , slightly herbal . On the palate waxy lemon and fresh pineapple. Touches of coconut , butter and toasty oak still at the end . Good length , and roundness , but held together with good balanced acidity . This is at its peak now , but should last a further 5 - 7 years . At Cheers Irish Pub , Jaraguá do Sul, SC , Brazil — 19 hours ago

The FMC Stellenbosch Chenin Blanc 2012

Brightest and most brilliant golden yellow I’ve ever seen, almost fluorescent!
Very unctuous and oily, sexy, Rubenesque.
Dense apricot, peach and mango. Thick layer of honey, some minerals. Full bodied and sweetish at first, getting drier towards the very long, harmonious finish.
Impressive and delicious!
