Blockhead Shiraz

£7.95
Add to basket

Made from 60-year-old vines, most of which are in the trendy Swartland region. About 30% stems are used in the fermentation and the wine receives a sort of Ripasso treatment as the wine is run over the skins again at the end.

It’s fresh, vibrant, positively thumping with sappy cherry fruit. The grip is there but perfectly balanced with a classy spiciness.

AA Badenhorst Secateurs Chenin Blanc

£13.95
Add to basket

Badenhurst Family wines are grown, made and matured in the Swartland appellation of South Africa making natural wines on their 60 hectare estate. One of the first wines we stocked when we first opened, and still just as good.

Adi Badenhorst’s Secateurs Chenin Blanc is probably the best bang-for-buck white wine we’ve ever sold. Why is this wine so special? Why does it win so much rapturous admiration? Because it surprises people with its quality.  This is immensely mouth-watering – struck rock, clotted cream and orange blossom, with a lightly creamy, zingy finish. Pair with pork chops, seared tuna and soft cheeses.

If you like spicy French Southern Rhone wines then give this a whirl.

Pairs well with roast lamb, venison and mushroom stroganoff.

So called because it contains the whole alphabet of grape varieties!  The wine makers at Alphabetical have chosen the best grapes, not limited by variety, to blend together to create this red wine.  Full bodied, round palate bursting with all the fruits and blah blah blah… 

But seriously.  Drink this.  Svelte, polished and with a sumptuous mouthfeel too, with gratings of dark chocolate, the merest hint of spearmint, and very fine, refreshing acidity.

Winemaker Thierry Haberer has been making wines around the world for over a decade. He has spent time working in Bordeaux and Napa Valley in the USA before settling at the Holden Manz Wine Estate in Franschhoek Valley, one of South Africa’s premiere winemaking regions. The estate boasts 22 hectares of exclusively red grape varieties; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah.

This multi award winning wine is a blend of predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Malbec. This is a big, bold spicy beast of a wine that has more than a whiff of top end Bordeaux and Hermitage about it. Ripe black fruit , liquorice and leather on the nose and palate; the fruit dominates but well balanced acidity and tannin are very much in the mix. A peppery spicy finish is particularly satisfying.

Make no bones about it, this is a wine that demands – not asks – demands to be paired with the reddest of red meats.

Clothes maketh not the man; judge the wines on what’s in the bottle, not by means of preconceived ideas.  Aromas of candied lemon, cooked apple and mango with a core of minerality. Soft and voluptuous, it has a lovely ripeness and a fleshy, creamy mouthfeel, which leads to a perfect tangy freshness giving some zip to its otherwise mellow feel.

Blank Bottle Master of None

£19.95

A madcap blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Pinot Noir and Pinotage, with 16% white grape varieties blended in too. Very juicy, very drinkable! Serve chilled – lots of strawberry juice, cherry and earthy notes too, blackcurrant leaf and pomegranate. It’s a fun little wine to not be taken too seriously. Like Pieter’s answer to a Beaujolais-villages and ultimate ‘vin de soif.’

Winemaker Thierry Haberer has been making wines around the world for over a decade.

The estate boasts 22 hectares of exclusively red grape varieties; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah.

The grapes for this white blend (40% Viognier, 40% Chardonnay and 20% Chenin Blanc) were hand selected from a variety of locations in Somerset West, Stellenbosch, Wellington and Paarl. They combine magnificently to produce a beautifully rounded, full bodied and well balanced wine.  A bright, flinty nose with lime, green apples, tangerine and honeysuckle.  The wine has had 12 month’s lees contact, adding creaminess and complexity. Absolutely sublime.

We love this wine with seared tuna steaks, tempura prawns with sweet chilli dipping sauce and mushroom wellington.

Keermont Terrasse

£21.95
Add to basket

Keermont Estate may well take the prize for most beautiful vineyards and views in all of South Africa. And yup, there’s some pretty stiff competition!  Nestled in a natural amphitheatre between the Stellenbosch and Helderberg mountains, their ambition is to produce wines that reflect the natural wonders of this exquisite place.

61% Chenin Blanc, 13% Sauvignon Blanc, 23% Chardonnay and 3% Viognier, with the backbone of the Chenin blanc from a 40 year old, unirrigated vineyard called ‘Riverside’.  One of the great things about Keermont is that they never rush to release their wines, so it’s developed some nicely waxy notes, pear tarte tatin, butterscotch and honeysuckle, macadamia nuts with a herbal, both sweet meadow and fresh green herb palate and long, tangy finish.

Blank Bottle Jimmy

£25.95

Every one of Pieter’s wines is a story, rather than a grape variety, and it’s the juice inside the bottle which reveals that story. He doesn’t own any vines, but instead scours South Africa’s winelands for top-quality fruit that has somehow slipped under the radar.

100% Verdelho from the Voor Paardeberg. It’s rich, it’s ripe, it’s opulent, but so well-balanced. Keylime pie, mango and hints of cardamon, with the most lovely lushness to the palate, like a whipped creamy pudding and hints of ginger too.  It goes exceptionally well with Thai food.  If you like your whites bold and big, this is for you – slightly later picked, but very fresh and high acidity.

The estate boasts 22 hectares of exclusively red grape varieties; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah.

This combination of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah delivers a perfumed nose with complementary flavours of black and red berries with underlying sweet spice notes.  2015 is widely regarded as an exceptional vintage in South Africa and this wine is a great expression of that outstanding harvest.

Pairs perfectly with a Braai (obviously!) a Saturday night steak or a Sunday lunch joint of beef. We also love it with a spicy slow cook vegan chilli.

Pair it with any type of grilled fish, white meats or mushroom risotto.

Blank Bottle Jaaa-Bru!!

£27.95

If you translate the word “Mal” from Afrikaans to English, it means “crazy” and “Bek” means “mouth”.  And that was quite clearly the inspiration behind this label!  This is of course 100% Malbec from the Helderberg.

Like dark chocolate dipped oranges, with lovely minty notes, violets and a sweet perfume.  Medium-full bodied, and very much so showing the softer, prettier side of Malbec, with gentle tannins, good freshness, and a lovely rounded mouthfeel.

Reverie Pinotage

A single vineyard of Pinotage, planted in 1999, produces the exceptional fruit from which this remarkable
wine is made. Rooted in the crunchy, granite derived Scali soil of  the Voor Paardeberg, these vines go without irrigation and plunge their roots several metres into the earth in search of moisture.  Cherry, pomegranate and spice flavours with aromas of raspberries and dried herbs.

Blank Bottle, BIG

£29.95
Add to basket

With stunning black fruit, cedar, graphite and sweet peppery spice matched with a cool meatiness to the nose, this is a very drinkable wine – don’t let the name put you off!  The fruit is ripe on the palate but doesn’t shout at you, with a gentle hint of green and savoury meaty note and just enough tannins – a great BBQ wine for sure.  This year, it’s a blend of 7 vineyards, with neither of the high elevation Ceres vineyards being included due to a fire close by to the sites close to harvest, with a smudge of Cab Franc too.

The wine was born as a fun strike back against the Swartland Revolution, when Rhone blends were suddenly thrust centre stage, and Bordeaux blends of Stellenbosch and all Cab suddenly became ‘uncool’. Pieter thought he would devote some time to the iconic grape variety, and what a great job he’s done.

Blank Bottle Luuks

£29.95
Add to basket

The second release of Pieter’s first ever Chardonnay.  The name comes from the barrel it was aged in: the first ever new barrel that Pieter bought.  Luuks roughly translates from Afrikaans to ‘lux’ or ‘luxury’ in English and it became a bit of a nickname for this wine aged in their fancy new barrel. 

There’s an opulence here – clotted cream, white flowers and buttered toast too.  Honey cakes and a lush creaminess with hint of ginger.  So well-balanced, and with a long future ahead of it.

Testalonga El Bandito Cortez

£30.95

Aromas of wild honey and freshly baked bread which contrast with its dry, very racy texture.  Core flavours are remeniscent of Asian fruits with a minerality that comes through.  Similar to Jura in style but distinctively New World.  Fascinating Chenin showing how South Africa is becoming a very exciting country for natural wine with life and vigour!
