June 2021

The first wines – whites and roses – of the 2021 vintage are edging their way onto our shelves and are looking very exciting, mainly crisp fresh Sauvignon Blancs, which are showing so much character.

The reds are now resting in their oak barrels and some are currently undergoing malo-lactic fermentation during which time the sharper malic [apple fruit acids] are broken down into the softer lactic [milk] acids. Sometimes this fermentation is started and encouraged by winemakers and at other cellars it starts spontaneously.

We wish all the Dad’s out there a very Happy Father’s Day on Sunday 20th June and hope that you will be celebrating with some lovely gifts and wines from our stores!

Limited upcoming releases for 2021

During the next few weeks we will have limited supply of wines from Thorne & Daughters, the AA Badenhorst Single Vineyard Range and a little later from van Loggerenberg, Sadie Family Wines, Crystallum and Alheit………all on limited allocation, please call us should you wish to get any…

We have an interesting line up of new wines in our stores, along with excellent daily tastings from well-known and newer estates. Please visit our website for details on our tastings at both our Newlands and Kloof Street stores.
