dry-land 12 year old bush vines planted on sandy loam in Darling. The Barbera was destemmed and fermented naturally for 2 weeks. It matured in 300L old French oak barrels for 11 month on the gross lees and only sulphured before bottling. No fining and only light filtration. This wine has been created with the absolute minimum intervention.
Gentle, fragrant aromat with slight oak and Brandy flavours, yet still distinctly Grappa character. Smooth and soft (even oiliness) across the palate with again the distinct Grappa characters. Builds intensity in the mouth then gives very pleasant warming glow on the swallow.

Once the most widely planted red-wine variety in the Cape, Cinsault, crossed with Pinot Noir, is one of the parents of Pinotage, which originated in South Africa. These old vines showed remarkable Old World quality, which we honoured by allowing the wine to reflect this elegant style.
South Africa may be defined as a New World wine producer but this can be a bit of a misnomer: our vineyards are planted in some of the world’s oldest soils. The decomposed granite soils that define their vineyards give this wine an earthy, cool and distinctively Old World character. Black fruit, cedar, and a hint of spice.
Fresh apple notes, quince jelly balanced with chalky undertones on the nose. A delicious well-balanced and structured Chenin Blanc from the Swartland. Lovely quince flavours balanced with lots of mineral undertones. This wine is a true terroir expression.
A red blend of Pinotage and Petit Verdot grapes resulting in a wine which has an intensely dark blueish colour. A full bodied rich wine with supple soft tannins but which has a lively long finish. The nose has a hint of cinnamon, blueberries, fruit cake and wild heath on the nose.
This ripe tropical Chenin blanc displays fresh crunchy apple notes before bursting onto the palate with a mouth-tingling crispness, leading to a long fruit-laden finish. Pairs well with Lightly spiced chicken curry or sushi with a dash of wasabi and ginger.
Showing beautiful sour cherries, ripe currants, aniseed with notes of white pepper, vanilla pod, forest floor and tea leaf. Complex, medium bodied and layered blend with smooth well integrated tannin structure. Well rounded with a long elegant finish on aftertaste.
The Usana Chenin Blanc is a beautifully balanced wine. The natural fermentation added a softer, creamier mouthfeel while the oak added complexity and body to the wine. On the nose and palate there are hints of white peach and pear, a hint of apple with a touch of toastiness from the barrel aging.
A delicious everyday drinking wine. A fresh wine with hints of quince, pear and zesty lemon and lime flavours. A full mouth feel with a lingering aftertaste and crisp acidity. A perfect blend of Swartland Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Hárslevelü, Chardonnay and Viognier.
