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.

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.

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.

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.’

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.

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 The Empire Strikes Back

£26.95

We have become big fans of the wines from Blank Bottle winery.  Pieter makes some stunning wines without compromising on quality and often they are produced in revolution or dedicated to someone or something Pieter feels strongly about.  Based on creating something similar to the cool Swartland blends (hence, the empire is striking back against the Swartland revolution!), this white Rhone blend grown and made in Stellenbosch (the Empire) is no different.  The label is two halves, the half star is the ‘Swartland Revolution’ logo and the black stripes represent the traditional and conservative Stellenbosch.  A really incredible winter white!

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.
