 Stellar Organics – Fair For Life

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

Paarl

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

Jordan Wines Vineyard 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.

Boekenhoutskloof   -  Franschhoek

Boekenhoutskloof was established in 1776 in the beautiful Franschhoek valley and makes one of the Cape’s legendary wines – The Chocolate Block – from grapes sourced from Swartland. Aged in French oak, it is a wine with dark, brooding black fruit and an opulent palate. Don’t miss the two Wolftrap wines : both are elegant, complex and delightful.
