Man Family Wines Warrelwind Sauvignon Blanc 2014 Product #29090 (In Stock)
Man Family Wines Warrelwind Sauvignon Blanc 2014 Man Family Wines Warrelwind Sauvignon Blanc 2014

The brothers-in-law who make MAN wines grow most of the Sauvignon Blanc for this wine in high-altitude vineyards of the Agter-Paarl sub-region of South Africa’s Stellenbosch.  Strong winds blow through the vineyards most every day, leading to the name “Warrelwind” (or Whirlwind in English).  And there’s certainly a Warrelwind of aroma and flavor in this delicious South African Sauvignon Blanc!

Big, fruity, aromas of red grapefruit, berry, and green apple jump from the glass with just the right touch of Sauvignon’s signature fresh cut grass for complexity.  The flavors are wildly complex – Ruby Red grapefruit, green apple, honeydew melon, and a touch of something tropical take center stage with savory accents of lime peel and fresh grass.  A touch of Semillon (10%) and regular lees stirring gives this a bit of extra body and rounds off Sauvignon’s rough edges, but the finish is juicy, mouthwatering, and fresh.  A good deal more sophistication and complexity than you’d expect for this fine value price!

"The 2014 Warrelwind Sauvignon Blanc has a clean and fresh bouquet that leans more towards the tropical rather than herbaceous spectrum of aromas. The palate is well balanced with citrus lemon, grapefruit and touches of peach towards the focused finish. Good quality at a great price."Wine Advocate 88 points

Man Family Wines Chardonnay Padstal 2014 Product #29215 (In Stock)
Man Family Wines Chardonnay Padstal 2014 Man Family Wines Chardonnay Padstal 2014

As Robert Parker said reviewing Man’s last releases, “This winery has some fabulous values and should be high on the shopping lists of frugal consumers.”  The 2014 Chardonnay is a delight, bursting with cut apple, pear, pineapple and lime zest aromas and flavors with a very light touch of honeysuckle and cream.  Even with all the boisterous fruit, this is crisp, clean, and dry with a savory touch of smoke on the finish.  The secret here is fantastic fruit fermented in tank, with about 15% spending time in new American oak barrels for 4 months to season them before they’re used for reds.  You won’t taste “oak,” but the time in wood gives this snappy Chardonnay a bit more depth than you find in all tank examples.  Great with all kinds of food and also as a solo sipper.  A Chardonnay even a Sauvignon Blanc drinker will love!

De Morgenzon DMZ Chardonnay 2013 Product #29297 (In Stock)
De Morgenzon DMZ Chardonnay 2013 De Morgenzon DMZ Chardonnay 2013

An extraordinary wine from a 400 year-old South African estate that pipes baroque music through the vineyards all day to keep the grapes happy!  It's rare to find barrel fermented Chardonnay with such class and grace at this price point, but the folks at DeMorgenzon seem to do it year after year.  While the 2012 is one notch richer and bolder, Steve Tanzer's 90 point review for the 2011 seems pretty spot on.  "Subtly complex aromas of peach nectar, brown spices and musky lees. Nicely dry in the mouth, but with an insidious sweetness to the flavors of stone fruits, pineapple and spices. A firm spine of acidity contributes to the dry impression on the brisk, persistent finish. Lovely expressive chardonnay with restraint."  Exactly!
