The Beeslaar Pinotage is quite simply the finest Pinotage being produced today and not just that, widely regarded as one of South Africa's finest red wines - indeed the two-times international winemaker of the year Abrie Beeslaar's eponymous wine was named 'SA wine of the year' by Tim Atkin MW just a few years ago.
Albert Ahrens' Ahrens Family Black is a classic Swartland red blend, like the greatest wines of the region taking its inspiration from the Rhône Valley with a Syrah supported by Carignan, Grenache, Mourvèdre and a tiny amount of aromatic white grapes (Marsanne & Roussanne). A serious red entering its prime. Meanwhile Albert's Ahrens Family White Black similarly takes its cue from the Rhône but comes from the neighbouring smaller region of Voor-Paardeberg. It is a richly textured, sumptuously aromatic blend of Marsanne, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Clairette.
Cape Point Isliedh is one of South Africa's greatest, most iconic white wines. From Cape Point's unique vantage point on the Cape Point Peninsula, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean at Noordhoek, the Sauvignon Blanc for this comes from their highest, most exposed vineyards where the grapes struggle against the elements. The Semillon component is made in clay amphorae constructed from local clay. It is a truly stunning white wine.
Matthew van Heerden Signature Pinot Noir and Chardonnay comes from a former international young winemaker of the year and someone with expert knowledge of the cooler-climate vineyards of Elgin, on the far southern tip of the continent. It's here that the likes of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay thrive and thrillingly so, to the extent that if you're a lover of fine burgundies these are right up your street.
