Eagle's Cliff - Breede River Valley

We are very excited by this stunning range of wines from Christiaan Groenewald in the Breede River Valley.
The superb, appley Chenin Blanc is the best value white wine that we list at this price and this vintage is
his finest yet. The Sauvignon Blanc has classic almost French elegance and fine gooseberry fruit.

Christiaan’s reds are equally fine, with a soft Merlot/Cabernet that has good blackberry fruit with
underpinning soft oak.   I am not normally a huge fan of Pinotage but the entry point Eagle’s Cliff
Pinotage is packed with soft jammy black fruit and none of the tobacco flavours that spoil
so many.
The stunning Arendskloof Tannat/Shiraz Reserve is the wine that gained Christiaan
the title Diners’ Club ‘Winemaker of the Year 2013’.

Stellar Organics – Fair Trade

Oliphants River

We have just been out to visit Stellar Organics and, impressed with the wines, have increased our range as a result.
This excellent Fair Trade Winery in the Olifants River region is some four hours’ drive north of Cape Town and has
hundreds of India Running ducks that patrol the vineyards by day, eating the bugs and aphids that cannot be sprayed
as they are an organic farm.  The Rosé was rated in the Saturday Telegraph as a top 10 South African wine,
the ‘No Sulphur’ Cabernet is a fascinating and intense wine that might be a glimpse of the future, while the delectable
Heaven on Earth pudding wine - made from air-dried Muscat – oozes apricot fruit. New are the full-bodied,
blueberry-fruited Reserve Malbec and the elegant River’s End Chenin Blanc and Pinot Noir which come from vineyards
close to the mouth of the Olifants river, where cool early morning mists and afternoon breezes help with perfect grape
maturation. The Chenin Blanc won double Gold in this year’s Michelangelo awards.

Painted Wolf


I have to admit that Pinotage has never been my favourite grape variety. Then last year I met Jeremy Borg and
was struck by his passion for the grape and the purity of his wines made from Pinotage grapes sourced from low
yielding, organically farmed vineyards in Swartland and Stellenbosch, and here we are listing four Pinotages
from his winery
. Drawing inspiration from the African Wild Dog  ‘Painted Wolf’ Jeremy and his wife Emma are
actively involved in the conservation of this endangered species.
Look at his website to read more about his fascinating story.

Jordan Estate - Stellenbosch

Gary and Kathy Jordan are undoubtedly two of the greatest winemakers in South Africa.
Their 134 hectares of vineyards stretch up over the Stellenbosch Kloof.  Their classic
Sauvignon Blanc
has long between considered one of South Africa’s finest, and
the wooded Chenin makes an attractive addition with citrus fruit combining with
creamy, spicy oak, and the massive Nine Yards Chardonnay puts many a
Côte d’Or burgundy to shame. Don’t miss the big unfiltered Cabernet Sauvignon Syrah
and Merlot, all three classic examples of the winemaker’s art and the ‘Cobbler’s Hill ’ is simply
sensational; made from the best selection of all their vines, it has unbelievable structure.
The delightful Mellifera botrytis Riesling is an a must for pudding wine aficionados.
