  • Swartland Limited Release Roussanne 2015


    For you "punters" out there - and I was one once, and still am - in many fields - this South African Roussanne is an excellent intro to the best (in my opinion) white varietal of the Rhone. I try, but I cannot distinguish any difference between this wonderful wine and an expensive French alternative; the nose has a layered tisane note with a to... Read More

  • Here in the United States we are on a first-name basis with our wine grapes. The majority of casual wine drinkers understand what “Merlot”, “Moscato”, and “Cabernet” mean. Nowadays “Pinot” and even “Riesling” are familiar pals too. This is largely because the United States and other New World regions label their wines by varietal rather than geo... Read More

  • Pinotage is a Brady Bunch grape. It was created by enmeshing two previously unrelated grapes to create a brand new entity which possesses its own compelling characteristics. In viticultural language this is called a crossing. If you really want to get technical, a crossing results when two grapes, both grown from vitis vinifera parent seed, are ... Read More

  • Swartland Winery Shiraz Swartland Indalo 2008


    Fairly nice South African shiraz. Not overly complex but there's nice dark berries, a hint of chocolate/cocoa, medium tannins and a smooth finish of medium length. Read More

  • Carnivores and grillers, a few reasons to love Syrah: it’s a fantastic wine for pairing with any roasted meats, especially red meats like beef and lamb, as well as wild game. It is often peppery and sometimes smoky, with a roasted fruit and/or roasted meat flavor profile that makes it a fine accompaniment to anything barbecued or grilled (even, ... Read More

  • Mullineux White Blend 2011


    Mullineux, the garagiste winery by young couple Chris and Andréa Mullineux, are making record speed at winning wine writers' hearts. Their wines, over the board, are excellent. No need (in my mind) to hit their prestige bottlings of Syrah - their "regular" shiraz is anything but regular. Same for their sweet straw wine, and for this white blend.... Read More

  • Sebeka Cabernet/Pinotage Western Cape Swartland Winery


    Verry good! Smooth and not too dry. This was left behind by guests and I thought for sure it was at least a $20 bottle. Happy to find out it's not and will definitely be purchasing. No vinegar taste whatsoever. I put this up there with Coppola Claret. Read More
