Blockhead Shiraz

£8.95
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.

Holden Manz Proprietors Blend White

£24.00 £20.00
Add to basket

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.

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.

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.’

Blank Bottle Moment Of Silence

£24.50

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.

Keermont Terrasse

£25.00
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 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.

Blank Bottle Jimmy

£28.00
Add to basket

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.

Keermont Syrah

£29.00
Add to basket

Sourced from three different vineyards, and with a drop of Mourvedre added to the blend, the 2017 Syrah is inky in colour and with dark fruit, but surprisingly nimble – violets, mulberries and a little sizzling bacon fat. On the palate there’s fabulous hot cross bun flavours – all candied peel and baking spice and pepper, matched with savoury fynbos and brush and a little caraway. The finish is very fine with refreshing acidity and a certain crunchiness to the fruit. Delish!

£30.00

Named after Franco Lourens’ father, whose image features on the label, this is a such a charming red blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah, all sourced from dryfarmed bush vines in the Swartland. The whole bunches bring gorgeous perfume, not just bright fruit, but lots of freshly cracked black peppercorns over pomegranate, pretty florals and hints of Asian spice. Such vibrancy on the palate with tissue paper fine tannins.

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!

Blank Bottle Little William

£37.95
Read more

Another great wine from Blank Bottle Winery with another great story behind it.  This is made from ungrafted shiraz grapes from a quite unusual part of the Western Cape.  Very high altitude vines, Pieter himself, claims this shiraz is more elegant and fine, more like Pinot Noir which is why he’s bottled it in this tall, slim bottle.  From a tiny vineyard, only 600 bottles of this vintage were produced.  The name and label comes from a time when he was driving back from the vineyard, on the phone to his wife and just around a blind corner, he spots something in the middle of the road.  Slamming on the brakes, he finds it is a little boy in just a white nappy stood on the white line on the road.  He ends up walking over a bridge with this little boy to a farmhouse where a woman comes out screaming ‘William’, mother and son reunited, good deed done!  A few years later, he’s in hospital with his son and somehow gets chatting to a woman who ends up being the sister in law to the mother of ‘Little William’.

Blank Bottle Luuks

£37.95
Read more

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.

Tesselaarsdal Chardonnay

£40.00

From unirrigated vineyards on the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge, and this is just her third release! Crisp acidity and lean minerality underpin notes of melon and tangerine fruit and accents of lime blossom. A triumphant expression of terroir, this medium-bodied, cool climate wine is both silky and fresh and boasts a long, elegant finish.

Tesselaarsdal Pinot Noir

£45.00

Another showstopper from Tesselaarsdal, this wine reveals shining notes of red cherries, cranberries and raspberries combined with hints of nutmeg and clove spices. The palate is divine – pillow soft, but with excellent focus, very long in the mouth and with lovely maritime freshness.

Restless River Ava Maria Chardonnay

£45.95
Add to basket

Restless River is a rising star which has quietly achieved cult-status for its brilliant, Burgundian-style Chardonnay and ultra-elegant Cabernet Sauvignon.  

Their farm is located in the beautiful Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. Its home to some of the oldest Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay vines in the region (planted in 1998). At Restless River, things are done in an unhurried way, with great dedication and attention to detail. Almost all their production is done by hand, resulting in limited quantities of each wine, and demand far exceeding supply. Restless River is defined by its terroir, and Craig Wessels’ thoughtful and careful winemaking allows it to be the star of the show.

£59.95

This is one of the best Cabernet Sauvignon’s around at the moment.  Black and red currants with hints of graphite and tar.  There’s also complex notes of wood, tobacco and cedar.  The terrior is really unique and that is expressed in the wine.   The name, Main Road & Dignity comes from the names of the vineyards that the grapes come from.
