Oliver Zeter Pinot Noir 2017

The Pinot Noir displays a fne, diverse and elegant cherry favor and runs through a partial maturation in wood.  Half of the wine was therefore stored for a period of ten months in used Vosges oak barrels. The young wine avoided mechanical stress during its processing period in the cellar. Subsequent bottling occur- red without fltration.

Grape Varieties: 100% Spätburgunder / Pinot Noir

Region: Pfalz

Tasting: Dry

Drinking temperature: 16-18°C

Alc.: 12,8% vol. 

Residual sugar: 0,6g/l

Acidity: 5,3g/l

Bottle size: 750ml 

Pinot Noir (in Germany known as Spätburgunder) from the “Nussdor- fer Bischofskreuz” site comes from roughly ffteen year old vines which are rooted in sandy clay soil. The gra- pes are a particularly small and loose berry variant of the classic Pinot Noir which is lower in yield but higher in quality. The use of chemicals in the vineyard is kept to a minimum and insecticides are not used. An ecolo- gical nutrient cycle is attained using green manure. By green harvesting, we reduce the yield further for a total of 8,000 kg/ha. Grape de-stemming or the removal of stems occurred imme- diately after the grapes were received at the winery. Then the grapes were crushed, fermented and left on the skins for about two weeks. During ermentation, an over-pumping of the pulp called remontage was done twice daily. After fermentation, gentle pressing occurred using a pneumatic wine press after removing the free- run juice. This type of treatment pro- motes the extraction of aromas, color and fne tannins from the grape skins which contributes to even greater complexity.

Mulderbosch Chardonnay 2018

Vanilla pod and fresh custard are some of the comforting aromas that greet the nose, lifted by ripe fruit notes of sliced pineapple and papaya. With a distinctive golden hue, the wine appears rich and inviting. A refined chalky edge gives the palate cut, offset by rich and creamy weight on the mid-palate. The wine’s final length is marked by a citrus zest note that provides a long and rising terminal. 

A third of the wine was fermented in 300L French Oak barrels whilst the remainder was fermented in stainless steel tanks. After racking off fermentation lees the wines matured for 6 months before being assembled for bottling.

Method: Vintage 2018 was marked by hot and dry conditions throughout the Cape. More so than ever before, the proximity of vineyards to the Atlantic Ocean played a crucial role in mitigating these challenging vintage conditions. Given the location of our vineyards overlooking False Bay, and on the elevated slopes of the Bottelary Hills we were able to produce a fantastic Chardonnay that displays our signature Mulderbosch freshness with an element of opulence often ascribed to warmer vintages.

De Toren Diversity 2018

Deep, ripe black and red fruit aromas seduce the senses, compelling you towards further investigation, revealing subtle supporting layers of oriental spices, rose petals and a slight minerality. This blend is exquisitely powerful, yet tantalizing soft on the palate, revealing those extra layers of complexity.  The superb Diversity 2018 vintage is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon and the intense, dark colour lures one closer to discover a rich perfumed classic Bordeaux style nose. 

The spectacular Diversity is an annual celebration of the rest of the best. A blend crafted with the same perfection in mind as our prised Left-Bank & Right-Bank Bordeaux-style wines, the renowned De Toren Fusion V & De Toren Z. This results in an outstanding blend that over delivers vintage after vintage. The release of the next vintage, Diversity 2018, is even more exciting than before, since it is accompanied by a brand-new look giving this incredible wine the elegant, magnificent look it deserves.

Ernie Els Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

The Cabernet Sauvignon is dazzling in the top 2015 vintage.

It is medium in body but full in character, charm and structure.

With air, notes of cassis, mint, baked plums and liquorice unfold on the nose, leading to a richly-fruited palate.

Hints of dried herbs and beef stock add complexity and lure to the finely textured, fruit-coated tannins.

The fresh acidity carries a long and lacy finish while the taught structure gives a platform for aging 2-5 years.

Alc. 14,52% vol. 

Residual Sugar: 3,7g/l

Total Acidity: 6,2g/l

In the Vinyard:

The Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards grow on the warm north-facing slopes of the Helderberg region within the Stellenbosch appellation.

The Hutton Clovelly soils contain a high gravel content which offers rich middle palate weight giving this wine exceptional depth and fruit purity.

Five clones of Cabernet Sauvignon were utilized in the production of this wine with CS46C being our most abundant in clonal selection.

With an altitude of approximately 250 metres above sea level together with the cooling influence of the Atlantic Ocean just 15 kilometres away, this extends the ripening period by up to 3 weeks resulting in lovely phenolic ripeness.

The Meerlust Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 was vinified from selected fruit from low-yielding mature vineyards. The vines are densely planted on gravelly, low vigour Vilafontes and Dundee soil which has approximately 15 % clay to ensure water availability to the vines roots right through the growing season.

On the palate the wine is concentrated yet restrained with dark fruit flavours of pastille, mulberry and dark chocolate, all held in an intricate lattice of polished sleek grape tannin. Still very young yet approachable, this Rubicon promises a long future of maturation and enjoyment.

Food Pairing: Grilled fish, white and red meat.

Vineyard

The Cabernet Sauvignon is grown on low yielding, predominantly biotite partially decomposed granite gravel topsoil rich in quartz and feldspar to a depth of approximately 600mm with a loamy clay subsoil. The Merlot vineyards are planted on more clay rich, yet well drained soils to ensure moisture retention and availability to the vines roots right through the summer. There are considerable deposits of iron-rich Laterite in the Merlot vineyards which accentuates the fruit definition and mineral profile of the wine.

The Cabernet Franc Vineyard is situated on very well drained, stony Vilafontes soil with approximately 20% clay which is ideal for this variety.The Petit Verdot is on Oakleaf 3 soils on a northerly aspect to ensure full phenolic ripeness

Vinification: Hand picked.  Partial whole bunch pressing and static settling overnight.

Aging Potential: 15 - 30 years, provided wine is stored in ideal cellar conditions.

Tokara Director`s Reserve Red 2016

The wine has stunning depth of colour. Displaying an intense garnet centre and a ruby rim.

The nose displays intense aromas of red and black fruits with hints of dried herbs, baking spice and graphite. The wine enters the palate with amazing clarity. The flavours are those of dark cherries, blackberries and ripe plum skin. There is a hint of spice on the mid-palate which leads to fine, firm tannins on the finish.

This wine drinks well now but will benefit from ageing until 2030.

Origin: This wine is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc. The grapes originated from TOKARA’s premium vineyards on the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain outside of Stellenbosch.

Food pairing: Grilled ribeye steak served with Béarnaise sauce, and potato Dauphinoise..

Residual Sugar: 2,7g/l

Total Acidity: 5,8g/l

pH: 3,47

Blend: 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc 

Winemaking:

The grapes were de-stemmed, before first passing across a mechanical sorting table and then a further hand sorting table before being crushed directly into tanks for fermentation using gravity feed and no pumps. There is a period of cold maceration for up to 5 days before the fermentation starts spontaneously (without the use of selected yeast strains). The grapes were fermented in stainless steel and wooden upright (foudre) fermenters. Pump-overs, délestage and punching down of the cap were implemented twice a day for extraction until fermentation was complete. The tanks were given maceration post fermentation if the quality and tannin profile of the wine warranted it. The wine was put to barrel for malolactic fermentation after which it was racked, sulphured and put back to barrel for further maturation. The wine spent a total of twenty-two months in 62% new French oak - the rest being older French oak barriques. During maturation the wines received four racking’s, all done barrel to barrel. The wine was bottled in January 2018 without fining or filtration. 15 400 bottles were produced. 

CROPPING AND HARVESTING

Only grapes from the best blocks and from the best parts of these blocks were used. The average yield is between 5 and 10 t/ha. The grapes were hand-picked at optimal ripeness between the 9th of March and the 11th of April.

Louis Roederer Brut Premier Champagne

Striking a perfect balance between youthfulness and maturity, seduction and character, freshness and vinosity, Brut Premier is a champagne that is harmonious and structured, elegant and lively, with a unique exuberancy. Its structured texture, richness, and length are distinctly winey. It is a full, complex wine that is both rich and powerful, whilst remaining a great classic.

A blend of around 40% Pinot noir, 40% Chardonnay, and 20% Pinot Meunier, Brut Premier comprises wine matured in oak tuns produced from three Champagne grape varieties that originate from various crus selected by Louis Roederer. It is aged for 3 years in Louis Roederer’s cellars and left for a minimum of 6 months after dégorgement (disgorging).

After the upheavals of the early 1900s, particularly the First World War that destroyed more than half of the Louis Roederer estate, Léon Olry Roederer reconstructed the vineyards. He decided to buy grapes to ensure the continuity of the House during this difficult period and, at the same time, created a multi-vintage wine that would have a consistent flavour, whatever the harvest year. It is now called Brut Premier.

Piper Heidsieck Rosè Sauvage Lipstick Edition

"Perfect union between red and white wines."

DAZZLING

Its dazzling appearance brings to mind a shiny ruby. Its deep scarlet colour - almost poppy red - symbolising the perfect balance between strength and elegance, comes from the red wines of Les Riceys in the Aube department.

ASSURED

In keeping with its colour, aromas of dark berry fruits pervade the senses. Imagine blackberry, blackcurrant and strawberry all scattered on a golden platter edged with mandarin orange and finished with exquisite traces of saffron.

DEEP

Chardonnays from the Montagne de Reims come together with Pinot Noirs of Les Riceys in the Côte des Bar, the most southerly Champagne vineyard. The result is a deeply intense performance that engrosses you from the first sip. With an incisive attack, juicy berry fruits in the middle-palate, spiced and smoked notes in its stunning finale, this champagne is a mischievous delight. Ideal to be served with duck à l’orange and other red meat dishes.

Ernie Els Signature 2014

The 2014 follows on nicely to the phenomenal 2013, both serious and towering Cabernet Sauvignon-lead Bordeaux blends.

Deeply textured, powerful tannins provide a towering structure to this majestic wine, loaded with cassis, smoked herbs, graphite and tobacco notes. Full bodied rich and superbly balanced, a crescendo of wet earth, rich fruit and dark chocolate makes for a classy finish. A backward wine that will blossom for over the next decade and likely further.

All fruit was sourced from the Ernie Els Wines property whose vineyards grow on the warm north-facing slopes of the Helderberg region within the Stellenbosch appellation.

The Hutton Clovelly soils contain a high gravel content which offers rich middle palate weight giving this wine exceptional depth and fruit purity.

Each variety is separately managed to create unique and varied flavour profiles for this classic, ‘Medoc-style’, Bordeaux blend. With an altitude of approximately 250 metres above sea level together with the cooling influence of the Atlantic Ocean just 15 kilometres away, this extends the ripening period by up to 3 weeks resulting in lovely phenolic ripeness.

Louis Roederer Brut Rosè Vintage 2013 Champagne

The wine has fruity aromas of wild red berries, followed by floral notes, and the sugary and spicy fragrance of zest; and the aromas of dried fruit and cocoa result from the wine’s vinifying in oak tuns. Rich and full-bodied, the Rosé Vintage exalts the maturity of the fruit. A sparkling wine with an initial impression of freshness, it opens smoothly with almost exotic notes, combined with the pure minerality of the Chardonnay grapes.

A blend of around 65% Pinot noir and 35% Chardonnay, 20% of which is wine matured in oak tuns, the Rosé Vintage cuvée is generally matured on lees for 4 years and left for a minimum of 6 months after dégorgement (disgorging) to attain perfect maturity.

In order for grapes to be used in the creation of a great rosé champagne, they have to attain perfect maturity, which is sometimes difficult to achieve in the changeable Champagne climate. This is why Louis Roederer decided to invest in the vineyards at Cumières, where the shallow calcareous clay soil, which is on south-facing slopes bathed in the light reflected from the banks of the river Marne, enables the grapes to attain optimum phenolic maturity.

Louis Roederer Brut Vintage 2012 Champagne

The palate is characteristic of Louis Roederer’s vintages: the attack is ample and dense; a rich and winey fullness is refined by the sweetness, acidity and tight blend of the Pinot noir grapes of Verzenay. The ensemble is perfectly integrated into a subtle texture. Tasting reveals sparkling suggestions of candied fruits, almond paste, toast, white chocolate, and caramel.

Composed of around 70% Pinot noir and 30% Chardonnay, 30% of which is wine matured in oak tuns, the Vintage cuvée is generally matured on lees for 4 years and left for a minimum of 6 months after dégorgement (disgorging) to attain perfect maturity.

Fascinated by the aromatic diversity of Pinot noir in Champagne, Louis Roederer uses the structure and power of the Pinot noir grapes from the Montagne de Reims to create its Cuvée Vintage. Exposed to the north-east, the grapes mature more slowly. The character of this great wine intensifies and becomes more refined through ageing in wood and time.

La Motte Hanelli R 2012

The combination of a good vintage and 40 months of wood maturation has produced a wine with exceptional depth, complexity and personality. The intensely distinctive nose shows rose petal perfume with black berry and mulberry fruit, as well as cinnamon and black pepper spice. An elegant wine with a lively presence and lingering after-taste.

Origin: The wine is a blend of Syrah (60%), Grenache (30%) and Petit Syrah (10%). 50% of the Syrah originates from Elim and 50% from Franschhoek, the Grenache is from Walker Bay and the Petit Syrah from Franschhoek.

Grape Varieties: Syrah (60%), Grenache (30%), Petit Syrah (10%)

Alc. 13,77% vol.

Residual sugar: 2,8g/l

Total acidity: 6,2g/l

pH: 3,42

Vintage:

A number of factors resulted in a lower than average yield in most of the areas from which the grapes originate. Although it was reasonably cool during the growing season, some areas experienced drought conditions. Areas that did not have irrigation water available during the late season experienced further losses later. The season will be remembered especially because of the heat waves in late January – during three consecutive days the temperature rose above 40 degrees Celsius in the Boland, followed, a few days later, by two more days of above 40 degrees.

Viticulture:

The Shiraz vineyards of Elim are trellised and grow in shale with a layer of “koffieklip” (coffee stone). This, combined with the cool climate, produces wines with intense perfume avours and a minerally palate. The Franschhoek vineyards grow in deep, sandy soil of weathered granite and sandstone and produce elegant wines with a creamy texture. Bot River’s Grenache vineyards grow in more shallow, denser shale and produce wines with a high tannin content and a dark colour. Because the grapes originate from diverse terroirs, the wines have depth and complexity.

Viniculture:

The grape varieties in the blend were harvested and sorted separately and the wines were fermented separately and matured in 300-litre oak barrels. After 40 months’ maturation the wines were blended and then bottled during October 2016. Only 3 300 bottles were produced.

Continuum 2015 by Tim Mondavi

The dark, rich core of the 2015 Continuum has aromas of cacao, black currant, cardamom and savory wild herb.

On the palate it is layered and supple, revealing black cherry and roast espresso notes intertwined with mountain minerals and a hint of tangy orange spice. The wine is lush with ripe chocolaty tannins that lead to a long, expressive finish.

2015, though small in volume, is a mighty vintage for Continuum; one to savor today or age and appreciate for decades to come.

Varietals:  46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Cabernet Franc, 17% Petit Verdot, 6% Merlot

Decanting: 

For the fullest sensory experience we encourage decanting Continuum, to allow the wine to breathe before serving.

Decanting awakens the wine’s more purely fragrant expression and enhances the suppleness of the palate.

Vintage Notes:

The 2015 season was the fourth year in a drought cycle with unseasonably warm weather and drier than normal soils.

The vines responded by breaking dormancy mid-February resulting in an early bud break.

An untimely cold snap led to a drawn out pollinization period significantly hindering fruit set, especially in the Cabernet Sauvignon blocks.

This resulted in dramatically lower yields, reducing our estate production by half the normal harvest. Yet the 2015 is actually a blessing in disguise. Looser clusters allowed greater light and airflow which, along with above average seasonal temperatures, led to consistent ripening and steady evolution of phenolics. A particularly vinous and tactile vintage, it is rich and succulent, revealing great depth of character reflective of this unique site and season. 

Production:

Continuum is 100% estate grown, produced and bottled.

All fruit was selectively hand-harvested into small lug-boxes, sorted before and after de-stemming, then gravity fed into French oak tanks or concrete tanks for fermentation. After fermentation, all lots were drained, with pomace pressed separately, to 68% new small French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and aging. The wine was clarified slowly and naturally through the use of traditional settling and racking techniques and bottled without fining or filtration. Each vineyard lot was tasted and carefully considered when assembling the 2015 blend. The 2015 spent a total of 22 months in barrel.

Wine Growing:

100% of the 2015 Continuum was grown on our Sage Mountain Vineyard on Pritchard Hill in the eastern hills above Oakville.

Our 38 acres of mature estate vineyard, with vineyards planted in 1991 and 1996, has a variety of western and south facing aspects with plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Merlot. In addition, new plantings were added in 2010.

Opus One 2014 by Robert Mondavi & Phillipe Baron de Rothschild

The 2014 Opus One exudes subtle aromas of fragrant florals, fresh garden herbs and forest floor that give way to a concentrated blend of red cherry, blackberry and black currant.

Fine-grained tannins offer a velvety texture and complex structure that builds to a long, vibrantly fresh finish with a touch of mocha.  Enjoyable now, the wine will delight for years to come. 

Vintage: 

The 2014 vintage was precocious – marked by the earliest bud break in our history.

Timely rainfall and a continuation of mild and dry conditions throughout the year allowed the grapevines to support the slightly higher-than-expected yields. Following a near-perfect growing season, harvest commenced on September 5th just as the grapes reflected an ideal balance between freshness and concentration. After an early rainstorm, there was a brief pause; but the succinct harvest was completed on October 7th.

Opus One 2015 by Robert Mondavi & Phillipe Baron de Rothschild

Initial dark fruit, spice and baking aromas in the 2015 Opus One are interwoven with seductive notes of violet, black tea, and sage.

The entry is vibrant with ripe dark fruit flavors of plum, blackberry and blueberry followed by hints of vanilla and cocoa.

Silky, fine-grained tannins provide structure and a creamy texture.

The wine finishes with fresh acidity and a rich, lingering finish that promises longevity in the cellar. 

Vintage: 

Marking the warmest year since 2008, the 2015 growing season set are cord for early bloom.

Drought conditions persisted, and rainfall was erratic, with most of the much-needed rain falling at the end of the previous year and supplemented by only a single storm in February, which was enough water to sustain the vines.

Cooler conditions during flowering ultimately lead to a smaller number of berries on each cluster and lower than average yields.

Warm summer months led to advanced veraison, which was followed by perfect ripening conditions.

Harvest began on September 1 with short pauses; heat spells and continued warmth allowed for the berries to be steadily picked at their ideal maturity. The harvest was completed on October 8.

Opus One 2010 by Robert Mondavi & Phillipe Baron de Rothschild

The 2010 vintage will be long remembered as a uniquely demanding year.

Mother Nature was capricious and challenging in presenting us with tremendous variability –

unseasonably cold days, untimely rain fall, and surprisingly sunny and hot days.

While colder than normal, the leaves were able to produce the needed sugar, while the grape berries developed lovely and complex flavor and

aroma components. Bud break and flowering were eight days later than the 5-year average. Unexpectedly high temperatures in late August and September allowed the vines to finish the growing season very well. Having left the sufficient number of leaves on the vines so as to have a full canopy, our grapes avoided possible sunburn from this late season heat. The success of the 2010 harvest was assured when we correctly assessed the early maturity of the grapes and had the confidence to pick at the first sight of ripeness. Harvest began on September 23 and succinctly concluded thirty-one days later on October 23. Aromas of fresh blackberry, rose petals, chocolate and espresso accentuate a profound tapestry of fruity and earthy nuances. Round velvety tannins enrobe a silky texture with a slight touch of minerality. The flavors of dark fruit are enhanced by the well integrated acidity. The acidity and tannin structure promise a very long life ahead for this wine.

Kanonkop Paul Sauer 2016

A complex perfume of plush black fruit, including cassis, black plum and sour cherries, complemented with layers of tobacco cedar wood and cigar box undertones. The full rich expression of the 2015 vintage, which is expressively fruit forward and opulent, will stand the test of time, and will be very rewarding to those, with some patience.
