A unique gin made from South African maize, infused with botanicals that have been carefully selected to pay homage to the Eastern spice trade that influenced Cape Town culture and cuisine alike.

Made from South African maize and infused with botanicals that have been carefully selected to pay homage to those who first brought gin to the shores of Cape Town. This beautifully balanced, dry English-style gin is positively brimming with flavour. From the fresh hints of citrus to the comforting earthy, pine notes of Juniper and Angelica, with the...
Rich ripe dark fruit combined with a whiff of deep red rose petals, followed by an attractive spiciness on the nose. Juicy and full-bodied, the palate offers plums, blackcurrents and tasty oak maturation flavours. Pair with lighter red meat dishes like pork fillet, veal or rich white meats like duck. A grilled snoek will also be a great pairing.
This Viognier has bright, explosive, floral aromas of honeysuckle and orange blossom. The primary fruit expression is peach and pear, with a hint of straw. The lengthy, dry finish reveals a bit of spice and dried herbs. This wine is ready to be enjoyed now and can be cellared through at least 2018.
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.
This Pinot Noir has been nurtured from start to finish. Meticulously managed vineyards, hand sorted grapes and gentle cellar practices have resulted in a wine that displays beautifully defined red berry fruits, an intriguing hint of violets on the nose and a rounded structure imparted by subtle use of French oak.
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.
Heady combination of liquorice, aniseed, black and red berries on the nose, all underpinned by hints of truffle, exotic mushrooms and spice. Smooth, velvety entry opens into an elegant mouthful of fruits – preserved raspberries and cherries – surrounded by oak-induced spice flavours of grated cloves and sandalwood.
The nose promises much – cedar wood, cigar box, tiny blackcurrants and a distinctive herbaceous edge courtesy of the Cabernet Franc – and the palate more than delivers on that promise with rich, savoury flavours of black olive tapenade, cassis, some perfumed sandalwood and a long finish which develops from fruit to savoury, and ends with an enticing...
