Riebeek Cellars Chardonnay 2013 Product #28488 (In Stock)
Riebeek Cellars Chardonnay 2013 Riebeek Cellars Chardonnay 2013

Here’s a fantastic Chardonnay for summer sipping.  It’s a mouthful of pure Chardonnay fruit – apple, pineapple, lime, lemon, and peach – unmarred by excessive alcohol (under 13.5%) or excessive oak (none at all!).  Brisk and bright on entry, creamy and nicely round in the middle, and then wonderfully fresh and clean on the zesty, mouthwatering, finish.  A fine fun bottle of Chard for poolside and back deck enjoyment (or even a big party in the Fall!).

“Riebeek Cellars, located on the western coast of the Cape Province of South Africa, was established over 70 years ago. These wines are meant to be consumed early in life, and therefore the focus is on unmanipulated, unadulterated, straightforward, abundant fruit. The 2013 Chardonnay is more reminiscent of a New Zealand Chardonnay than most from South Africa. Its offers a combination of lemon/lime notes intermixed with hints of honey and white peaches, medium body and an unoaked style. Enjoy it over the next year.”Wine Advocate 86 points

“This is direct, with green almond, pear skin and green apple notes that lead to a quick, fresh finish.”Wine Spectator 86 points

Riebeek Cellars Pinotage 2012 Product #28489 (In Stock)
Riebeek Cellars Pinotage 2012 Riebeek Cellars Pinotage 2012

You might want to see if pigs are starting to fly – because Doug is actually recommending a wine made from Pinotage!  This cross between Cinsault and Pinot Noir created in 1941 and grown pretty much exclusively in South Africa is usually too earthy, vegetal, chemical….whatever; it usually doesn’t taste very good.  But here the combination of 80% Pinotage and 20% of a very obscure blending grape called Mocha ends up tasting like really ripe Gamay.  Not sure how they did that, but I am sure that you’ll love the big, plump, raspberry, fruit cake, dark chocolate, and subtle leather aromas and flavors and the juicy, mouthwatering, bite of cranberry at the very end.  A great wine to chill down and enjoy from the time you light the grill right on through washing up after your guests have left.  Really fun stuff.

“Light-bodied and direct, with bitter cherry, blood orange and singed cedar notes, delivering a racy, taut feel through the finish.”Wine Spectator 86 points

Noble Hill Suider Bloem White 2013 Product #27965 (In Stock)
Noble Hill Suider Bloem White 2013 Noble Hill Suider Bloem White 2013

A creative and frangrant South African white that blends Chenin Blanc (for body), Viognier (for floral perfume), and a touch of Sauvignon Blanc (for herbal snap).  It's crisp and citrusy with hints of tangy apple, chamomile, spice, and more.   Medium bodied, nicely textured, fresh, and very clean on the bright, dry, finish, this will make a great party white and work well with seafood and salads at table.  Outstanding value, too!

Keermont Red Blend 2011 Product #28366 (In Stock)
Keermont Red Blend 2011 Keermont Red Blend 2011

Smell and taste this blind and you'll find yourself thinking of expensive Cabernet or Cab blends from Napa Valley's Spring Mountain. There's plenty of ripe fruit on the nose and palate - black currant, black raspberry, and dark plum - with accents of bitter chocolate, coffee and spice. The texture is lush in the middle before Spring-Mountain-like acidity and minerality lends a refreshing tang to the fruit and firm tannins providing support. A wonderful blend of lushness and power (and value!) that gives a fine taste of the quality coming out of the best estates in South Africa these days.

"If you want to see the new South Africa and catch a glimpse of what the future beholds, then look no further than Keermont....The 2011 Keermont is a blend of 49% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc and 6% Syrah matured for 24 months in French barrels of which 20% is new. It offers lovely brambly black fruit on the nose with touches of black currant pastilles emerging with time. The oak is very well-integrated and complements rather than dominates the fruit and with time, there is just a suggestion of cocoa emerging. The palate is succulent on the entry with lavish spicy black fruit. It is very harmonious and suave with a caressing, voluminous finish that lingers long in the mouth, with white pepper and fennel notes lending complexity. Lovely! Drink now-2018."Wine Advocate 93 points
