    93 Points Robert Parker

    94 Points James Suckling

     

    Maquis is uniquely situated at the convergence of two rivers on clay, alluvial soils making it potentially the best site in Chile for Cabernet Frank which inspired them to make this stunning wine.

    It's big and silky with red and black fruits with a light spice, then big vanilla coming through on the long finish.

    92 Points Robert Parker

    Maquis is a superb artisan family winery at the confluence of two rivers at the feet of the Andes. This "Lien" was their only wine for the first five years but they have sinced introduced others. It's a fantastic blend, made in a natural style.

    Typical big Chilean nose. In the mouth it is soft and very smooth, elegant and perhaps more savoury than powerful and punchy.

    It's a great wine as you can see from it's awards.

  13. Joubert Tradauw R62 Alternative Blend

    A new wine from Meyer. Although he started producing this a couple of years ago as an entry level introduction to his superb wines, this is the first time we've been able to get any as it is extremely popular.

    It's a natural wine fermented with it's own yeasts, unfined and unfiltered leaving the natural antioxidants in there. Sealed with a wax top. The free SO2 has remained free so while it's a healthy wine we don't recommend it for anybody with a sulphite allergy. Opt for the Grangehurst Daylea instead  

    Deep ruby. Mouth filling and round with initial red fruits turning to black fruits on the dry finish. Enjoy it with a roast or BBQ.

    This is a great artisan wine produced in the Malleco Valley which is just about as far south as wine country goes in Chile.

    Pale gold in colour with a lychee nose. Reminded me very much of good Awatere Valley Sauvignon. It has big concentrated fruit flavours with gentle natural acidity (rare in sauvignon blanc) and a very long dry finish.

    A great summer wine, also will pair well with food.

    Well here Rosa has made a superb Verdejo from organically grown grapes.

    Delicious flavours, fresh and crisp yet with some body and complexity from 4 months on the lees.

    A fantastic wine for summer and a bargain at this price!

    4 1/2 stars Platter Wine Guide

     Tim Atkins – 91 points

    Given the huge success with their flagship Gamka red, Margaux opted to produce a classic white Cape Blend too.

    It's a blend of Chardonnay, Viognier, Grenache blanc, Verdelho & Chenin Blanc from different regions - Elgin, Stellenbosch, Swartland and Klein Karro, so pretty much the entire Western Cape.

    It was both barrel fermented and barrel matured on the lees for nine months. Bottled unfined and unflitered to retain the goodness.

    Pale gold in colour with wonderful clarity. Full in the mouth with a melange of fruit flavours, delicate balanced acidity and a very long bone dry finish. This is a great wine!

    Only 1400 bottles produced!

  35. Laverstoke Park Biodynamic English Sparkling Wine 2015 Brut

    Independent English Wine Awards - Silver Medal

    A new biodynamic sparkling wine for us, from England!

    This Laverstoke Farm 2015 Brut was made in the traditional Champagne method, with extensive lees ageing for four years. It is also made from the traditional Champagne grapes of course, in this case dominated by Pinot Noir which is how I personally prefer my vintage Champagnes.

    It is excellent, easily as good as any vintage Champagne at this price point, Really fine mousse, big biscuity flavours, toasty with a long finish.

    It's also very natural being biodymically certified by Demeter, with the benefit of organic and biodynamic farming. As it's a sparkling wine the naturally produced CO2 acts an antioxidant so it is very low sulphite too.

    I strongly urge you to give ait a try and support our domestic wine industry!

    Brand new wine.

    Fantastic! We were very pleased with this.

    Great colour (looks much darker in the image). Full strawberry flavours, soft and round. A bit "fatter" than their other rose wines (due to no added sulphur) which makes it a great accompaniment to spicy foods. But it's equally lovely to enjoy on it's own.

    This is filling the gap until we can get more Mayrac Esprit Nature (which is en route) or more D'Anglas, and it is just as good as either of those!

  42. Passo del Sud Appassimento

    Luca Maroni  95 Points

    Passo del Sud is a new wine for us made in the Appassimento method of pre drying the grapes in the sun to concentrate flavour, alcohol and power.

    This wine is the collaboration of two friends (Benedetto & mario) using local indigenous grapes with a little Merlot.

    It is very good indeed. Made on a slightly larger scale than our boutique wines but still much smaller than mass produced wines. We have given it a medium rating for sulphites just to be over cautious, so please avoid it if you have a sulphite intolerance. For everybody else though this is an excellent choice if you want a powerful wine at the right money.

    Big, powerful yet velvet smooth. Excellent wine!

  48. The Fledge & Co Elgin Chardonnay O Velhapi

    Special Offer - reduced from £22.99 to £15.95

    Leon did us a deal as there was a mix up and he accidentally put this on our last order. Once you go above £20 for whites they sell much more slowly so in the interest of promoting this wine Leon has discounted it to us and we are discounting it further to make it affordable for all our regulars to treat themselves this Christmas!

    This is the maiden release for this amazing new wine! A cool climate Chardonnay from a tiny vineyard in Elgin.

    Leon produced just 1,320 bottles so we are extremely fortunate to have got a sizeable chunk of it!

    Barrel fermented and barrel matured, made in a very Burgundian style for South Africa. This will rival fine Burgundy on quality and blow it away on rarity and price!

    Surprisingly light in colour for a barrel fermented Chardonnay. Leon is quite right, this will benefit from some bottle ageing. It is very enjoyable now - I decanted it  to give it some air - but it will keep improving if you can lay it down for a few months (or even years). 

    It is full flavoured with some body and good mouthfeel. Very fresh and clean yet complex with a long finish.

    All the Fledge wines are low sulphite, but we also wanted to mention that all the free SO2 readings were at bottling which will have reduced significantly since, so they will in fact be even lower than stated now.

  49. The Fledge & Co Red Blend

    Platter 4.5 Stars

    Hand harvested grapes, traditionally fermented in lagars then aged in oak for 30 months.

    This is a beauty. Big and powerful with red and black fruit flavours, wonderfully smooth with well integrated oak and natural acidity. Delicious on it's own or would pair well with red meats or casseroles.

    Highly recommended!

  50. The Fledge & Co Stellenbosch Cabernet

    This is the maiden release of this new artisan wine which Leon just launched in Johannesburg at the end of August. He produced just 1880 bottles.

    Leon says it is still tight so will benefit from decanting. 

    Delicious! Deep ruby opaque. Black fruit initially with some lighter red fruit toward the finish and integrated but noticeable oak. Good weight on the palate and super smooth. I decanted it to give it some air but I reckon it'd be a great wine to savour throughout an evening from freshly opened to fully aerated. Ideal in front of a log fire!

  51. Tampesta Golan Prieto Picudo D.O Tierra de Leon

    This artisan Tampesta Golan is again Prieto Picudo, this time aged in oak for 26 months. It is delicious and natural. Although aged for 26 months in oak it isn't overpowering as some Reservas can be, it is far more balanced and elegant.

    The wine is made by expert Galician winemaker Luis Buitrón, vice-president of the Spanish Federation of Winemakers and president of the Association of Oenologists of Galicia. Highly recommended.

    This is a library picture of the Roble as there are no professional images available yet as this is a brand new wine. Presentation is very similar though.

  52. Santa Margherita Chiaretto DOC Stilrose

    James Suckling 90 Points

    Santa Margherita Chiaretto Stilrose is a superb rose for the discerning wine drinker. Pale salmon pink in colour, full and round in the mouth with complex concentrated flavours. Gentle acidity cleanses the palate on the long finish. This wine is the Italian equivalent to good Cotes de Provence, although this is comparatively low in sulphites too (which is very difficult to find in France). This is the Italian "Whispering Angel".

  53. The Fledge & Co Syrah

    Platter 4.5 Stars

    The Fledge & Co is the fabulous winemaking venture from Margaux Nel (younger daughter of Carel Nel and winemaker at the family winery, Boplaas) and her husband Leon Coetzee. They handcraft tiny quantities of different wines from specific vineyard sites all over the Cape winelands. Often using exciting "experimental" techniques like extended skin contact, whole bunch pressing etc. They travel 20,000km to hand harvest the grapes from 35 different vineyards.

    This is Syrah grown on shale at a secret vineyard Leon has been watching for the last seven years. He added a small amount of Viognier from the neighbouring vineyard too. Hand harvested in the early hours of the morning, fermented in open top cement lagars then aged for nine months in French oak before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.

    Again very French in style. The wine is ruby red and crystal clear. On the palate it is medium bodied with good mouthfeel. Some lovely red fruit flavours initially then there is a lift from the viognier toward the long finish. Perfect balance throughout. This is a classy wine, again not a blockbuster, but elegant and delicious.

    All the Fledge wines are low sulphite, but we also wanted to mention that all the free SO2 readings were at bottling which will have reduced significantly since, so they will in fact be even lower than stated now.

Often using exciting "experimental" techniques like extended skin contact, whole bunch pressing etc. They travel 20,000km to hand harvest the grapes from 35 different vineyards.

    Leon says: "A proper barrel fermented & matured Cape White blend, encompassing vines from across the length and breadth of the Cape's winelands.  The current 2016 vintage is a combination of Steen, Chardonnay, Viognier, Verdelho & Grenache blanc - it's very food friendly & akin to Rhone white with a lot more refinement thanks to our cool climate Chardonnay, low alcohol & use of old French oak casks." 

    Gold in colour with wonderful clarity. Swirl it around to see the legs on the glass. Lovely flavours with peach and some citrus. Quite full body with a creamy mouthfeel. This is lovely wine. delicate for a South African, made in an elegant and classy style.

    Be careful not to overchill this beauty!

Often using exciting "experimental" techniques like extended skin contact, whole bunch pressing etc. They travel 20,000km to hand harvest the grapes from 35 different vineyards.

    Leon states "A single vineyard, dry land farmed bush vines, barrel fermented & matured Chenin from the Bottelary planted in 1983 & which they only crafted 200 cases of. The Hoeksteen is a wine which benefits greatly from further bottle maturation & is (unintentionally) very "Loire"-like."

    For me personally it was a little too French! I like my whites with a bit more power. This reminded me a lot of white Burgundy which many would say was a compliment. I would say if you like your Northern French whites this would be up your street but if you like a fuller heavier white then opt for the Fledge Vagabond instead.

Often using exciting "experimental" techniques like extended skin contact, whole bunch pressing etc. They travel 20,000km to hand harvest the grapes from 35 different vineyards.

    This "Fume Blanc" is a blend of hand harvested Sauvignon grapes from two sites, one in Stellenbosch overlooking False Bay and the other up at Gansbaai north of Cape Town on the Atlantic coast. It was both barrel fermented and barrel matured, then bottled unfined and unfiltered.

    This is a complex wine, a big hit with their customers in South Africa and clearly well liked by Tim Atkin MW too. Big and round for a Sauvignon with bags of flavour, yet gentle natural acidity. This is a sophisticated wine suited to buttered seafood.

  57. Cave de Cairanne Le Chene Givre Rose Cotes du Rhone Villages

    Brand new wine. 

    This rose is fantastic. Pale salmon in colour. Delicious red fruit flavours with a very long dry finish. Low sulphite as well. We don't have the official figures yet but Jane was able to drink it without triggering her sulphite allergy.

    It looks great too (this image doesn't do it justice). Amazing value at this price.
