  • Aa Badenhorst Secateur Chenin Blanc 2010


    Adi Badenhorst, the winemaker, is a bit nuts and he plays it up. A founding member of the Swartland Independent Revolution, he is easily recognized at any formal South African wine event for his wild beard and bright eyes. He says the wine makes itself because he is lazy - I'd like to call Bull**** on that one. He knows exactly what he is doing ... Read More

  • Lammershoek Barrique Chenin Blanc 2009


    The first time I tasted this I said "wow". The second time I tasted this, I offered to work for the winemaker (he didn't take me, by the way). Such an interesting, rich chenin blanc with many layers of creamy complexity and minerality on top of a good acidity from what should be a terribly hot climate. A fun wine to play with for food pairings o... Read More

  • Spice Route Red Blend Swartland Chakalaka 2008


    Rich red and black berry nose with cedar, incense and Indian spices. Notes of plum, blackberry, some blueberry and crushed black pepper. Big, concentrated flavor up front on a powerful frame. Some hints of cola with black cherry, blackberry, black plum, some dried red fruits and a peppery, smoky edge. Nice mix of spice on a lingering finish... Read More

  • Mullineux Family Wines Syrah Swartland 2009


    Tasted with Cathy Van Zyl MW at a Mullineux trade event in Cape Town last ... ... the quality and terroir of Swartland on the map. Made from Syrah sourced strictly from organic growers in the region, Chris crafts Northern Rhone ringers on granite and schist soils. While the 2009 Syrah shows the grace and elegance typically found in France, his... Read More

  • Valley Vineyards Chenin Blanc Swartland the Royal 2011


    Tastes like the ocean (per my daughter), don't buy again (wife). Not that bad (me). Nothing on the nose, slight taste of lemon, cleaning solution, rubbing alcohol. Read More

  • Columella Swartland 2006


    More fresh tasting and fruit-forward than newer vintages, considering its age. Decent tannic and earth structure. Definitely a wine that would benefit from some cellaring, and then magic! Read More

    Wine review by Amanda Schuster

  • Columella Swartland 2006


    Low and clean on the nose with bright notes of red currant, black cherry and vanilla backed up with integrated notes of wood spice. This is a touch thick on entry and seemingly soft but the wine quickly unfurls in the mouth showing off nicely supportive acidity and super fine polished tannins. This is elegant and fresh with some lovely raspberr... Read More
