  • Fantail Pinotage 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Excellent wine and a great example of a Pinotage. A little bit of spice and very well rounded. Touch of earth and herb that offsets the fruit. Great stuff. Read More

  • Morgenhof Estate Sauvignon Blanc Stellenbosch 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Tight and almost chalky on the nose, this shows more mineral and taut fruit notes than many of the wines with subtle herbaceous hints. Light-bodied and fresh in the mouth, this has a creamy edge but remains quite transparent on the palate, showing some lightly tropical, mango-toned fruit flavors along with a nearly steely edge. The back end turn... Read More

  • Pinotage Fantail 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This review was from the '08...This wine was enjoyable once in the mouth but the nose was dominated by cheap hair salon perm odors and made me a sceptic before even hitting my lips. I will live a happy life without this wine. Read More

  • Morgenhof Estate Chenin Blanc Simonsberg-Stellenbosch 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This wine has it all: Vanilla, cream, milky nose, white chocolate, coconut. A real bomb... But euh, where is the chenin-blanc?A great and impressive start, but you get bored after a while from all its power. Great however to have a white wine that can cope with the heavier creamy chicken or fish recepies. Read More
