    Steenberg 1682 Brut Chardonnay NV

    HK$200
    The 1682 Brut Chardonnay has a pale lemon colour and a delicate mousse. It exudes freshness and pure fruit on the nose, vibrant notes of Granny Smith apple, candied lemon rind and white peach. It is lively on the palate, displaying finesse and complexity with a crisp acidity. Flavours of lemon cordial, honeyed nectarines, toasted croissant and pistachio are evident on the palate. It has a long, yet refreshing finish. This Méthode Cap Classique is the quintessential drink for all occasions.

    Vinification: The Brut 1682 Chardonnay is a blanc de blanc and made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes. It is made in the traditional French method and as such is designated Méthode Cap Classique. The Chardonnay grapes were picked by hand at low sugar levels of 17 - 19°B and whole-bunch pressed. The juice that is extracted is low in phenols, high in natural acidity and relatively neutral in terms of varietal flavour. This juice ferments with a strong strain yeast to form the base wine of the MCC. Once the base wine is stabilised, it is fermented a second time in the bottle. During this secondary fermentation the yeast produces CO2 which is the bubbles or mousse of the MCC. Post fermentation, the bubbly was aged on its yeast lees for a minimum of 12 months up to 18 months.

    Alheit Cartology 2014

    HK$280
    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.

    Waterford Elgin Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    HK$163
    A strict selection of Elgin’s best quality vineyards. A more restrained style of Sauvignon blanc showing fresh granadilla and green apple fruit, with underlying chalk and slate notes confirming the Elgin origin of the grapes. The palate is finely textured with soft fruit, tight acidity, and a deceptively long finish of flavours. A wine showing the true expression of Elgin terroir on Sauvignon blanc.

    Mullineux White Blend 2014

    HK$185
    Chenin Blanc based white blends from the Swartland are fast becoming an outstanding category, due in no small part to the excellence of winemakers such as the Mullineux family and their consistently outperforming wines. The Chenin Blanc content has been increased slightly again this year to 80% with Clairette offering 13% to the blend and the balance from Viognier, which gives it a gorgeous floral lift.

    Mullineux White Blend 2011

    HK$185
    Yet another string to the bow of Chris and Andrea Mullineux, we offer a remarkable blend of 3 grapes. 65% Chenin Blanc gives the supporting backbone of acidity to this wine while contributing apple and tropical notes. Clairette and Viognier make up the rest of this blend and give further rich tropical flavours and citrus layers. Decanter, 95 points - Textural, fresh, bright fruit. Bone dry with pure apple concentration.

    HK$280
    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.
