    Steenberg Ruby Rosé 2017

    US$15
    This pale, petal pink dry Rosé delivers subtle fragrances of boysenberry jelly, watermelon sorbet, candy apples, red liquorice candy, ripe sweet melon and fresh herbs on the nose. The wine is full and creamy, yet fresh on the palate and entices further with notes of juicy raspberry, wild strawberry, spiced stone fruit and a zesty finish. This wine is light and flirty, yet shows great depth and lingers considerably on the palate. The perfect drink for all happy occasions.

    Analysis: Alcohol 12.5% | Sugar 1.8 g/l | TA 4.6 g/l | pH: 3.41

    Harvested: February 2017

    Soil Type: Shale / Weathered sandstone

    Trellising: Bush vine / VSP

    Age of Vines: 16-39 years

    Yield: 5.5 ton/Ha

    Vinification: Our Steenberg Rosé is made from Syrah (51%) and Cinsault (49%). The Syrah grapes hail from our farm here in Constantia as well as from a beautiful ridge in Robertson, whilst the Cinsault grapes were sourced from a special site of old bush vines in the heart of Stellenbosch and the Swartland. The grapes were hand-picked in the early morning and whole bunch pressed with a champagne pressing cycle to extract a pale and delicate juice. The Syrah and Cinsault juice were fermented separately in order to retain the beautiful varietal characteristics of each cultivar. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks with a small percentage in neutral oak. The wines were inoculated with neutral yeast strains and underwent a cool fermentation (13-15°C) for about 21 days. The Syrah and Cinsault were then blended, underwent a light fining and bottled mid-May.

    Steenberg 1682 Brut Chardonnay NV

    US$26
    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.

    Eagles’ Nest Sauvignon Blanc 2017

    US$17
    The nose initially shows primary Sauvignon Blanc fruit aromas, including flavours of guava and white pear. These notes are underpinned by a fresh zesty core, complemented by lime, oyster shell salinity and some spicy celery leaf notes. The palate is fresh, with vibrant acidity and tropical fruit aromas carrying through. Six months' lees contact has bolstered the mouth-feel, adding weight and structure to the pallet. This wine will be ideally paired with sushi, grilled fish and shell fish. Enjoy now or to 2020.

    The High Road Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

    US$20
    The palate has a soft ripe full fruit driven entry which complements the nose with a depth and length. The blackcurrant and blueberries are forward on the palate with a long lingering middle palate helped by the dark fruit. The fruit is open and easily tasted but with more to come with time. The tannins are subtle and full allowing one to be able to drink the wine now. This wine should age very well with the correct cellaring. The wine is very well balanced and has a long lingering fruit driven after palate with well-defined tannins. This wine is able to be enjoyed on its own or with one’s favourite dish.

    Beaumont Raoul's Old Basket Press Red 2012

    US$21
    This is an eccentric and warm-hearted red blend. A brilliant winter warmer and can be served slightly chilled during the summer months. Made from old and low yielding vineyards, the fruit displays excellent character and complexity. A Tinta Barocca based blend, softened with Merlot and spiced up with a touch of Cabernet Franc, at the end of a hard day, it doesn't get much better than this!

    Eagles' Nest Shiraz 2014

    US$37
    The 2014 Eagles' Nest Shiraz has a deep dark core with garnet rim. On the nose, aromas of freshly crushed red pepper kernel, intense blueberry and subtle black cherry are delicately entwined with a faint smoky wisp and baking spices. On the palate creamy mouth filling tannins integrate with pepper spice to embrace your taste buds and deliver a delicious, savoury flavour sensation. Well judged acidity focuses these flavours as they resonate in the aftertaste. A truly great wine from maturing vineyards, this wine will age gracefully for 20 years from vintage.
