    Alheit Cartology 2015

    US$36
    Cartology is intended to be a picture of the Cape, seen through the lens of her mature vineyards, in a given vintage. Therefore, the cuveé is composed of rare and extraordinary parcels of mature dryland bushvines. Naturally, the varieties used are also heritage varieties, namely Chenin blanc and Semillon which have been planted in the Cape for centuries. The blend has grown in size since the maiden 2011 vintage of this brilliant Chenin with 14% Semillon blend, but it’s still a very impressive wine, sourced from nine different parcels. Floral, leesy and spicy, with notes of beeswax, pear and green apple and a slight bitter twist.

    TASTING NOTES

    I almost think it’s enough to quietly inform you that 2015 was an extremely good vintage for white wine in the Cape. So much so, that we’re keeping quite a bit more than usual for ourselves. This bottling is intensely flavoured; ripe pear, honey and limey citrus come to mind. There are herbal/floral notes too - spearmint and lime leaf. As with all of our 2015’s, the natural acid is a treat.

    - Chris Alheit, winemaker

     

    More than ever, 2015 reflects chenin & semillon partnership, latter up to 14%. There's an earthy, sunnily ripe aromatic quality mirrored in the rich & dense texture. Clean, lemony intensity provides lengthy conclusion. Lovely wine from grand vintage; long potential.

    Kevin Arnold Shiraz 2013

    US$37
    Vibrant dark fruit, earthy and clove pepper spice lead the aromatics of this Stellenbosch Shiraz, accompanied by soft plum fruit undertones. Natural acidity and the classic granular tannins are very characteristic of the voluptuous nature of a Stellenbosch Shiraz. This vintage is named after Nadine, Kevin and Heather’s daughter.

    Waterford Estate Chardonnay 2015

    US$28
    A brilliant olive-green hue very characteristic of this single vineyard Chardonnay. The aromatics of this wine is driven by fresh peach pip, lime and a gentle influence from oak. The age of these vines still prove to produce lovely restraint, tightly structured wines which are rather perfumed when young but develop beautifully from time spent in bottle, 2-5 years from release.

    Constantia Semillon 2011

    US$19 US$25
    100% barrel fermented Semillon with 20% new oak gives intense, upfront aromas with flavours of nectarines and citrus fruits supported by subtle wood spice flavours. The wine shows exceptional balance of fruit and oak with a long, lingering finish. Excellent with a wide variety of foods, try this with risotto, shellfish or mild curries.

    Mullineux Syrah 2013

    US$32
    We're delighted to offer the 2013 vintage of Mullineux & Leeu Family Wine's superb Syrah. Growing worldwide demand has limited the amount that we are able to offer but the quality is as good as ever. Similar in style to the 2011 vintage, you will be happily rewarded if you can squirrel this away for 5-10 years.
